Espresso Single Origin: Paso Malo

$22.00

Country Of Origin: Colombia
Region: El Tambo, Cauca
Process: Washed

Varietal: Castillo, Caturra
Altitude: 1700-1750
Farmer/Producer/Mill: AMACA - Women Producers
Flavour Note: Dried cherry, Chocolate, Lemonade

This coffee was developed through the hard work of the Asociación de Mujeres Productoras Agropecuarias del Cauca (AMACA), a group of 140 passionate and strong-willed women producers who live in El Tambo, Cauca. The average size of each farm in the AMACA is 1-3 hectares (around just 5,000 trees).

To support the producers, a premium is paid on top of the coffee value. The money goes towards resources the whole community can use, such as milling equipment, a storage warehouse to manage milled coffee, and assistance with quality assessment processes such as grading and cupping. Women from the AMACA rely solely on coffee farming as a means of sustaining their family and community. This makes the organisation all the more valuable, as it allows these producers to share knowledge and get the support they need.

We hope you enjoy this coffee, knowing that you are backing an organisation that benefits an entire community.

Espresso Single Origin: Jabanto Yirgacheffe

$22.00

Country Of Origin: Ethiopia
Region: Yirgacheffe, Gedeo
Process: Natural

Varietal: Heirloom
Altitude: 1780-2300
Farmer/Producer/Mill: Jabanto
Flavour Note: Peach, spiced plum, fairy floss

Jabanto is a great success story, having grown to 44 smallholder farmers since starting with 29 in 2018. The cooperative has a strong focus on separating coffee beans into single farm lots and distinct varieties.

The Ethiopian Coffee Exchange has recently started to relax its regulations in this area, which is good news for growers, as the ability to trace coffee to its origin has long been missing from the Ethiopian coffee market. Jabanto hopes to lead the way in rewarding the farmer and helping consumers understand more about the diversity of varietals in Ethiopia.

They also continue to produce beautiful coffees like this one, a natural Ethiopian we know everyone will enjoy..

Espresso Single Origin: Shembati

$22.00

Country Of Origin: Burundi
Region: Kayanza
Process: Washed

Varietal: Bourbon
Altitude: 1730-1800
Farmer/Producer/Mill: Shembati Coffee Washing Station
Flavour Note: Cherry, green apple, licorice

Serving around 4000 smallholder farms, Shembati Washing Station takes every care to help farmers produce the best quality coffee they can - a job made easier by the region’s cooler climate, which is perfect for coffee production.

Once the cherries are received at the plant, Shembati’s team immediately get to work, sorting out the ripest cherries by hand and with the help of flotation tanks. To control the quality, everything is kept separate according to harvest day and the area they are grown in. The cherries then undergo a washed process which involves double fermentation: first a dry fermentation, before the mucilage is washed off and the coffee is submerged for the second round of fermentation. Finally, after being washed again, the coffee is dried slowly on raised beds. This long process not only evens out the moisture content but also gives extra control over the entire process. The end result is a well-processed and delicious coffee that is sure to have you coming back for more.
