afloat Tart and soft with toffee, cherry and citric acidity. Tart and soft with toffee, cherry and citric acidity. *Formerly known as Fazenda Serrado, the Iamas Pereira (I.P) namechange is an attempt to differentiate the farm from being confused with the Cerrado coffee Region. Pereira Estate is perched in the high mountains of the South Minas Water Spa Circuit, near the towns of Lambari, Carmo de Minas and São Lourenço. The 300 acres of Pereira Estate bring together all the fundamental requirements for the production of great coffees: altitude, climate and personal dedication. The 250 acres cultivated with the Bourbon, Acaiá, Mundo Novo, Catuaí and Catucaí varieties are planted in fertile mountain soil at altitudes ranging between 1,100m and 1,300m. The high altitude favors a slow ripening of cherries and permits selective picking which are decisive factors to produce coffees of exceptional quality. The day-to-day attention to detail of the Pereira Family leaves its personal mark on the coffees produced by Pereira Estate. Their coffee beans are gaining widespread international recognition for their exceptional quality. In 2002 Pereira Estate was one of the winners in the Cup of Excellence coffee quality competition. nft,norg

Regional Selects is a new project we are creating in Colombia meant to highlight the unique profiles we have found are inherent in specific microregions within Colombia.  The regions we will begin highlighting to start are Huila, Narino, Cauca and Tolima. Tolima is a Department in Colombia in the center West of the country.  This part of the country has been difficult to travel to over the last ten years and is still a little dicey and pretty remote. Coffees from here, when done right, are nutty, tangy and fruity with creamy body and clean lingering acidity. Farmers in this region have slightly larger farms than most in the south, sometimes 10-15 hectares of land. They pick, pulp, ferment and dry their coffee on raised beds with parabolic covers. They tend to work similar varietals, some old, some relatively old and some new but the style is pretty much the same. We think that the terroir or soil, sun weather and placement on the planet contribute largely to the flavor of these coffees when picked ripe and handled properly. So these coffees are selected by cup and then blended together like a Rhone wine or a local honey that comes many fields in a 4 mile radius.  nft,norg

Doña Noralba has worked with coffee all her life because it is a tradition in her family, and that is why she has been always interested on it. She is the owner of Los Lirios, thanks to a gift from her father that she received 20 years ago. The farm has always produced coffee, and all her family have also coffee farms, they work all separately but together. Doña Noralba has 1.200 coffee trees in her 2 and a half hectares, all of them Caturra variety. Her biggest challenge has been the difficulties with the workers she hires in the time of harvest, because it is complicated to deal with their schedules and conditions, nevertheless, she has reached out the way to motivate them and teach them how to work with love. In the other hand, what she loves the most about coffee is that although it is a dedicated task, is an easy work in which all the family can participate. She looks further that her son and daughter will continue with the family tradition of being coffee growers. Doña Noralba does a selective hand picking of ripe cheeries. After being depulp, the coffee is wet fermented for 8 - 10 hours. Once the fermentation is done, coffee is moved to parabolic dryiers to be dried for a lapse of 8 - 10 days. nft,norg

He promised his family he would take them to see the ocean and he already did. (He showed us the pictures to prove it). Arnulfo is very proud to be a farmer. What this new generation of cafeteros wants is recognition for their hard work and the means to sell their coffee as a traceable microlot and not a blend. We met Diego, his son, at the Los Naranjos cupping lab. He is training to be a cupper at the moment and plans to stay in the business. Farmers are now starting to understand the importance of being able to taste their own coffee. We are really excited for Arnulfo and Los Naranjos' future!

Microlot 3 Finca Buenavista (GrainPro) 6964 70kg 61 Cafe Imports Fulfillment LLC USA
minnesota-us Chocolate, citric and herbal. Chocolate, citric and herbal. Don Jose has been Buenavista’s farm owner for 15 years. He received one part of it as an inheritance from his father and the other one he bought it to his sister, now he has 3 hectares all cultivated with coffee. The estate has always been a coffee-farm. In Buenavista, under a temperature between 20°C and 22°C he has 13.000 coffee trees growing of Caturra and Colombia varieties. Don Jose came into the coffee world thanks to his father, who taught him everything he knows and he has stayed in it due to the good results he has seen through the years. One of his biggest problems relates to the seasons when the price is low. Nevertheless, he is very grateful of what he has received from being a coffee grower, and this is the reason why he continues with the tradition of teaching his children all about coffee production always noting that to have good coffee qualities involves making a good work. Don Jose does an individual picking, (cherry-color in Caturra and grape-color in Colombia variety). Coffee is pulped without water and goes through a dry fermentation processing the sun for 17-18 hours. After the fermentation is done, the coffee iswashed and cleaned and move to the patio for being dried for 5 -8 days. nft,norg

Microlot 8 Carmen Cecilia Montoya Patiño (GrainPro) 7409 70kg 6 Cafe Imports Fulfillment LLC USA
minnesota-us Sweet cherry and floral flavors with a soft, heavy mouthfeel and savory clove aftertaste. Sweet cherry and floral flavors with a soft, heavy mouthfeel and savory clove aftertaste. A second generation coffee grower, Carmen Cecilia has worked diligently with her family, elevating her three hectare farm to a rank few ever achieve - 1st place in a Cup of Excellence competition. Her award winning coffee in 2014 was the culmination of years of planning and execution. She selected seed from her strongest Caturra trees, germinated and reared them in an on-farm nursery, then replanted her fields with the saplings. As the trees matured, Carmen Cecilia and her family honed their picking and processing technique to what it is today: red cherries are hand harvested, then depulped on site in the farm's micromill. The wet green ferments for 48 hours with two flushes of fresh water, then is sent through sorting channels and dried in a parabolic drier. It receives a screen sorting before being bagged and left to rest under shelter, then is dry milled for final sorting and bagging. Carmen Cecelia's farm represents two trends we're excited to see in coffee - first, growers intently learning and planning their operations to produce high quality coffee on a consistent basis. This year's offering cups quite similarly to that which won 2014's Cup of Excellence. Second, an increasing number of women are taking over as owners offarms and coops and producing exceptional results. Carmen Cecelia is exemplary in this role. nft,norg

View blog here We purchased this lot through Asociacion de Cabildos Juan Tama.  This is an indigenous group of coffee producers which are comprised of 8 different cabildos (tribes).  The total land of the 1400+ families amounts to 2,000 hectares with a total of 400 farms--all of which are certified organic.  About 25,000 people in the area depend one way or the other in coffee production. The eight cabildos are: Yaquiva, La Gaitana, San Andres, Santa Rosa, Calderas, Tumbichucue, Turbina and San Jose del Pedregal. In 1995 Unesco declared the Tierradentro Reserve to be a world heritage site, a center of historical and cultural heritage; citing mainly the necropolis of pre-hispanic Colombia or the Hippogeos of Tierradentro.  It is also home to a group of 1800 families of indigenous Colombians, organized in to six Resquerdos or reserves and eight Cabildos or tribes. The Cabildos provide guidance, technical assistance and quality control to the coffee farming families which receive social benefits and a way to maintain independence. They have been producing coffee for generations but have historically sold in on the street or to an independent collector. Recently though with some guidance and an independent passion, they have been able to commercialize their coffee themselves and it is very nice coffee.   The average farm in this region is about 3 acres with traditional varietals of Typica and Caturra growing amongst a forest of plantains, avacados, mangoes and guayaba fruits. The forest floor is a bed of mosses and what we could consider ornamental plants of pansies, violets and thick ferns. There is ample water coming down out of the mountains that producers use to ferment and wash their coffee. Most have a small hand pulpers out back and ferment overnight in a tub for something like 10-13 hours depending on the ambient temperature and humidity. It is a hand test in the morning to determine if the sugars are off the beans and then in to the drier, a small parabolic drier with a bamboo floor and domed poly roof to keep the afternoons rain off.  Once dried it goes to the communal warehouse in town where it is catalogued and cupped.

We are happy to introduce to you a new group called: “Aromas del Sur” located in Palestina, Huila. We are working together with Aromas del Sur to bring to you the best coffees from Palestina! The founding members created the group in 2013 when they discovered the potential of specialty coffee production. Currently 73 active members compromise Aromas Del Sur. The average farm size is 6 hectares with an altitude range going from 1400 to 1900 masl. The highest farm is located at 1970 masl. The varieties commonly found on the farms are: Caturra, Colombia, Castillo, Tipica, Red Bourbon, Pink Bourbon and Tabi. Harvest starts in October and peak harvest is in November; Micata is May and peak mitaca is in June. Producers harvest and mill their coffee following quality standards; they do a selective hand picking of ripe cherries, ferment the coffee to adequate level and dry the coffee between 10 to 11.5 moisture content. The common practice is that the producers mill the coffee at their own farm and once coffee is dried to the desire moisture content, it's transferred to Aromas Del Sur warehouse. Aromas del Sur has a project called“Universidad del Café”(Coffee University) focus to teach and implement quality procedures among group producers. The goal of the project is to train the producers in agricultural practices, commercial knowhow and cupping ability. Aromas del Sur warehouse function as a storage place for parchment coffee and has a well-equipped cupping lab for quality control. Each lot is cupped get the coffee profile and to check the quality. Some facts about Palestina: Palestina, located in the south of Huila, is also know as Agua Azul, (Blue Water) because is consider as the main source of water for the department of Huila, having several water sources such as: Guarapas River, Suaza River, Aguas Claras River, La Quebradona River, Agua Azul River and La Cumbre River. nft,norg

melbourne-au Chocolate with bright citrus. Chocolate with bright citrus. Regional Selects is a new project we are creating in Colombia meant to highlight the unique profiles we have found are inherent in specific microregions within Colombia.  The regions we will begin highlighting to start are Huila, Narino, Cauca and Tolima. Cauca is a Department, or State, in Colombia. The capital Popayan has a little over a quarter million people within the city limits. Cauca stretches from the Western Cordillera mountain range to the Pacific Ocean. Valle de Cauca is to the North and Narino to the south. Coffees from here, when done right, are big and juicy with red fruits, caramel, chocolate and some intense lingering acids. Farmers in this region average about six acres of land. They pick, pulp, ferment and dry their coffee on raised beds with parabolic covers. They tend to work similar varietals, some old, some relatively old and some new but the style is pretty much the same. We think that the terroir or soil, sun weather and placement on the planet contribute largely to the flavor of these coffees, when picked ripe and handled properly. These coffees are selected by cup and then blended together like a Rhone wine or a local honey that comes many fields in a four mile radius.  nft,norg

This program has allowed us to separate out lots from specific communities that score over 86 points and pay a quality premium that the individual communities get to receive and decide as a group how the money will be used to improve their coffee production and their livelihood. We have seen the premiums used to build roads, build large water tanks to store fresh water for the community, building roofs for the children’s schools, and many other projects that have had a direct impact on these communities. This program has motivated these producers to keep upping their quality, and we are very excited to see that this year’s harvest has been very impressive. Some of the best individual producers in Costa Rica used to deliver their cherry to cooperatives, and in an effort to segregate their own production and quality, opened their own operation. But there are still many producers of that caliber who still deliver cherry to cooperatives. This is where Coopetarrazu comes in. Microlots in cooperatives can be controversial, but Coopetarrazu has made a commitment that they want to improve the lives of their members and offer them the opportunity of gaining higher quality premiums for their best coffees. This is why CoopeTarrazu developed the Community Coffees project: in which cherry is collected from the peak of the harvest from high-altitude communities and has traceability to the community or micro-region, as opposed to a Generic SHB Tarrazu.

This program has motivated these producers to keep upping their quality, and we are very excited to see that this year’s harvest has been very impressive. Some of the best individual producers in Costa Rica used to deliver their cherry to cooperatives, and in an effort to segregate their own production and quality, opened their own operation. But there are still many producers of that caliber who still deliver cherry to cooperatives. This is where Coopetarrazu comes in. Microlots in cooperatives can be controversial, but Coopetarrazu has made a commitment that they want to improve the lives of their members and offer them the opportunity of gaining higher quality premiums for their best coffees. This is why CoopeTarrazu developed the Community Coffees project: in which cherry is collected from the peak of the harvest from high-altitude communities and has traceability to the community or micro-region, as opposed to a Generic SHB Tarrazu. The results of this program have been phenomenal. We are very proud to partner with Coopetarrazu on this project and support these hard working producers.

Microlot Aguilera Bros - Finca Toño - Washed (GrainPro) 7636 69kg 5 Cafe Imports Fulfillment LLC USA
minnesota-us Caramel, crab apple, citrus fruit and intense tart citric acidity. Caramel, crab apple, citrus fruit and intense tart citric acidity. Café Imports is excited to be working with the Aguilera Bros in West Valley. The Aguileras are 12 brothers and sisters, all of whom are involved in coffee as inherited from their parents. The brothers work the mill and farms themselves with basically no hired labor, other than pickers during the harvest. With the help of the third generation, they work the mill and drying patios, prune the coffee fields, fertilize, etc, year-round. The Aguilera Bros understand quality at the farm and mill level, and this is why we are excited about working with them. Most of their coffee is of the Villa Sarchi variety, native to the area and excellent in the cup. Villa Sarchi is a Bourbon mutation (similar to Caturra and Pacas) found originally in Naranjo, West Valley. It is a dwarf variety with short internodes and usually higher-yielding production. The cup can be floral, with great intense and elegant acidity, high fruit tones (like passion fruit), and pleasing sweetness. Coffee has been cultivated in Costa Rica since 1779. Currently, the regions producing the best quality are Tarrazu, West Valley, and Central Valley. Coffee production has been threatened the past decade due to a real-estate boom converting coffee-lands into prime development properties. San Jose, the capital, is right in the heart of Central Valley, where you will find private houses next to coffee farms. The value of these farms have now skyrocketed.

They inherited their farms from their grandparents and are known for being one of the first to process high-quality Honeys and Naturals in Central America and for participating in the Cup of Excellence auction in 2009. Las Lajas is an organic micromill located in Sabanilla de Alajuela in the Central Valley region of Costa Rica. Organic coffee in Costa Rica is almost non-existent and with this caliber of cup makes it one of a kind; they believe in the preservation of the environment hence their organic practices. Las Lajas processes coffee from their family farms’; these lots are fully traceable and separated by day. Water use is minimal since coffee is not washed. During the harvest Francisca will measure the brix contents in the coffee cherry to determine the optimal time to pick their coffee. 21 - 22% brix content has been the maximum they’ve seen. Honey Processes Las Lajas carries several distinct processes from this mill. Yellow Honey: 100% Mucilage left on, turning hourly on the bed Red Honey: 100% mucilage left on, turning several times a day (less frequent than yellow honey) Black Honey: 100% mucilage left on, turning only once per day Perla Negra: Natural process, turned normally on raised beds Alma Negra: Natural process, turned only a few times a day on raised beds This honey process of leaving 100% of the mucilage on in all "levels" of honey is distinctive to Las Lajas. This just shows that terminology can mean various things region to region and farm to farm. Cafe Imports is excited to bring you, once again, high-quality and traceable microlots from Costa Rica.

minnesota-us Rich sweetness, crisp, tart and winey acidity with chocolate, fruit and berry lemonade. Rich sweetness, crisp, tart and winey acidity with chocolate, fruit and berry lemonade. Café Imports is excited to be working with the Aguilera Bros in West Valley. The Aguileras are 12 brothers and sisters, all of whom are involved in coffee as inherited from their parents. The brothers work the mill and farms themselves with basically no hired labor, other than pickers during the harvest. With the help of the third generation, they work the mill and drying patios, prune the coffee fields, fertilize, etc, year-round. The Aguilera Bros understand quality at the farm and mill level, and this is why we are excited about working with them. Most of their coffee is of the Villa Sarchi variety, native to the area and excellent in the cup. Villa Sarchi is a Bourbon mutation (similar to Caturra and Pacas) found originally in Naranjo, West Valley. It is a dwarf variety with short internodes and usually higher-yielding production. The cup can be floral, with great intense and elegant acidity, high fruit tones (like passion fruit), and pleasing sweetness. Coffee has been cultivated in Costa Rica since 1779. Currently, the regions producing the best quality are Tarrazu, West Valley, and Central Valley. Coffee production has been threatened the past decade due to a real-estate boom converting coffee-lands into prime development properties. San Jose, the capital, is right in the heart of Central Valley, where you will find private houses next to coffee farms. The value of these farms have now skyrocketed. Café Imports bought its first Costa Rica microlot container at the end of the 2006/2007 harvest; at that time, microlot offerings were basically nonexistent. In six years, the Costa Rican microlot market has grown, and now Costa Rica is one of the most popular origins, delivering very consistent quality year after year. The Costas Café Imports is carrying are all sourced directly from micromills, and producers were paid at the farm-gate level. We managed local transportation, dry-milling, consolidation, and exportation of the coffees. This experience is extremely valuable, as it gives us a better understanding of what it takes to get coffee from cherry to export quality in GrainPro and jute with its corresponding marks.

During the harvest Francisca will measure the brix contents in the coffee cherry to determine the optimal time to pick their coffee. 21 - 22% brix content has been the maximum they’ve seen. Honey Processes Las Lajas carries several distinct processes from this mill. Yellow Honey: 100% Mucilage left on, turning hourly on the bed Red Honey: 100% mucilage left on, turning several times a day (less frequent than yellow honey) Black Honey: 100% mucilage left on, turning only once per day Perla Negra: Natural process, turned normally on raised beds Alma Negra: Natural process, turned only a few times a day on raised beds This honey process of leaving 100% of the mucilage on in all "levels" of honey is distinctive to Las Lajas. This just shows that terminology can mean various things region to region and farm to farm. Cafe Imports is excited to bring you, once again, high-quality and traceable microlots from Costa Rica. Cafe Imports bought its first Costa Rica microlot container at the end of the 2006/2007 harvest; at that time the microlot offerings were basically non-existent. In six years the Costa Rica microlot market has grown to be one of the most popular origins that deliver very consistent quality year-after-year. The Costa’s Cafe Imports is sourcing directly from micro-mills and producers were paid at the Farm Gate level. We managed local transportation, dry-milling, consolidation, and exportation of the coffees. This experience is extremely valuable as it gives us a better understanding of what it takes to get coffee from cherry to export quality in GrainPro and Yute with its corresponding marks. -Piero Cristiani nft,Organic

The Community Coffee program with Coopetarrazu has made a real impact on the communities that deliver cherry to this mill.  This program has allowed us to separate out lots from specific communities that score over 86 points and pay a quality premium that the individual communities get to receive and decide as a group how the money will be used to improve their coffee production and their livelihood.  We have seen the premiums used to build roads, build large water tanks to store fresh water for the community, building roofs for the children’s schools, and many other projects that have had a direct impact on these communities.  This program has motivated these producers to keep upping their quality, and we are very excited to see that this year’s harvest has been very impressive. Some of the best individual producers in Costa Rica used to deliver their cherry to cooperatives, and in an effort to segregate their own production and quality, opened their own operation.  But there are still many producers of that caliber who still deliver cherry to cooperatives.  This is where Coopetarrazu comes in. Microlots in cooperatives can be controversial, but Coopetarrazu has made a commitment that they want to improve the lives of their members and offer them the opportunity of gaining higher quality premiums for their best coffees.  This is why CoopeTarrazu developed the Community Coffees project: in which cherry is collected from the peak of the harvest from high-altitude communities and has traceability to the  community or micro-region, as opposed to a Generic SHB Tarrazu.   The results of this program have been phenomenal.  We are very proud to partner with Coopetarrazu on this project and support these hard working producers.

The micro-climate in this area is very particular.  It is very wet almost year-round and has good temperature fluctuations from 12 - 28 degrees Celsius with an average of 20 degrees.  This weather is ideal for coffee growing and it reflects in the cup. The South of Ecuador has small-holders with 1.5 hectares on average.  While in the North we see larger farms. Typical Southern farms will be organic and extremely diverse with flowers, corn, cabbages, bananas, bees, cows, fish, fruits, and coffee.  A big challenge these farmers are facing at the moment is leaf rust.  This decimated plantations in Colombia bringing their production down 50% in a couple of years.  The easiest solution for leaf-rust is intensive chemical applications but their respect for the environment makes them take the harder organic route.  Also, plant nutrition in Ecuador is extremely low due to little fertilization.  This affects cup quality and yields from parchment to green coffee. Farms in the North are bigger, at 15 hectares or more.  They use conventional fertilizers and are in better shape in general; the area is extremely lush and in very moist conditions with a nice warm summer creating good conditions for growing coffee.  This area is extremely interesting, you will find: ancient indigenous tombs, a vineyard, and an experimental variety farm ran by NESPRESSO. -Piero Cristiani Fair Trade,Organic

The coffee of El Salvador is known for its old-growth heirloom Bourbon variety, and was first cultivated in the early 1800â??s. El Salvador, compared to its counterparts in the region, has preserved a substantial amount of Bourbon varieties due to its Civil War in the 1980â??s. During the years El Salvador had a Civil War, other countries were introducing Catimors and Catimor hybrids which have high yields, are resistant to diseases (like rust or roya), but are sub-par in terms of cup quality. Farms now have old-stock Bourbon trees (as old as 50 - 80 years old in extreme cases) which are susceptible to rust and could be problematic in terms of cup quality due to its deficient nutrition if not managed intensively. - Piero Cristiani nft,norg

london-eu Honey, berries and jam with a creamy mouthfeel and tangy acidity. Honey, berries and jam with a creamy mouthfeel and tangy acidity. José María Lemus is the owner of Peña Dorada, a 2.5 hectares farm size. The process starts when by doing a selective hand picking of only ripe cherries. Coffee is depulped by hand the same day as being harvested and moved to beds to start with the drying process. The drying process takes a lapse of 14to 16days. José María Lemus does all type of process: honey, washed and natural Parchment coffee is stored in a warehouse only for coffee until is moved by mule to the dry mill. El Salvador has been traditionally known for bigger estates in Santa Ana. Chalatenango wasn't really on the map until Cup of Excellence came. The first year of CoE, Santa Ana was in the top places. The second year Chalatenango "was discovered". This area has had good results due to its Pacamara variety and significant climate difference from Santa Ana, much cooler climate. It is a hard area to access. Coffee is traded in parchment here so this complicates things a bit. We have to buy the coffee in parchment and find a mill to prepare it in green exportable. This brings some risks such as yield risk, each coffee will yield various amounts of green depending on the amount of defects I've personally been criticized by some Santa Ana producers as to why we are buying coffee in this area. One producer asked me why was I buying coffee there as he thought coffee from here was "stolen" due to the nature of how it's bought and sold (a lot of times with cash in hand), and another producer questioned me as to why I was buying directly from producers and not through an exporter, the answer is simple, to access the best qualities. This year we bought some coffees grown at 1900 meters in this area. Could be one of the first El Sals at this altitude Piero Cristiani nft,norg

By 1880, coffee was an exportable product and was becoming more important to the economy. Coffee production flourished throughout the 20th century, reaching its peak in the late 1970s. By 1980, coffee was responsible for the 50% of the gross domestic product. The civil war of 1980 affected the production of coffee and the production was decreased. Ending the civil war, Salvadorian producers started investing on technology in the farms, and also new coffee varieties were planted and The Institution of Coffee was created. All of these important factors, helped to develop the coffee industry. And in the following years coffee production is an important economic factor in El Salvador.

The procees starts by doing a selective hand picking only of ripe cherries. Coffee is depulped the same day as being harvested. Don Angelino ferments the coffee in tanks for 13 to 16 hours. The drying is done in patios for 11 - 12 days. El Salvador has been traditionally known for bigger estates in Santa Ana. Chalatenango wasn't really on the map until Cup of Excellence came. The first year of CoE, Santa Ana was in the top places. The second year Chalatenango "was discovered". This area has had good results due to its Pacamara variety and significant climate difference from Santa Ana, much cooler climate. It is a hard area to access. Coffee is traded in parchment here so this complicates things a bit. We have to buy the coffee in parchment and find a mill to prepare it in green exportable. This brings some risks such as yield risk, each coffee will yield various amounts of green depending on the amount of defects I've personally been criticized by some Santa Ana producers as to why we are buying coffee in this area. One producer asked me why was I buying coffee there as he thought coffee from here was "stolen" due to the nature of how it's bought and sold (a lot of times with cash in hand), and another producer questioned me as to why I was buying directly from producers and not through an exporter, the answer is simple, to access the best qualities.

Composting takes 3 months Gelana Abaya is another gem of a region in Yirga Cheffe region. This area is nestled between Lake Abaya on the west and the town of Yirgacheffe on the East. There is a lot of debate about natural coffees, but one thing that I do know is that it takes an amazing origin to shine through the intense flavour profile that comes from the natural process. Gelana Abaya has that intensity of cup to pair intrinsic bean with process! Ethiopian Commodity Exchange (ECX) The ECX was started in 2008 to help protect farmers from market forces that might prevent them from making a living. Most of the coffee in Ethiopia is produced by small-holders who own 0.7 hectares,bumper crops often lead to big price drops, which can make it unprofitable for farmers to harvest their coffee. What the ECX does is commoditize grains- including sesame, beans, maize, wheat, and most importantly, coffee. This ensures prompt payment to farmers. It also integrates all parts of the “eco-system” involved in a grains market, including warehousing, grading, trading, and payment. Access to information is emphasized, as farmers can obtain information about trading prices and local delivery points easily through dedicated telephone lines. Here is a general rundown of how the ECX chain works in Ethiopia: Farmers deliver cherry to local wet mills. Some wet mills pay a premium for better quality cherry, some do not. The wet mill then delivers parchment coffee to a delivery station warehouse. In Yirgacheffe, this delivery station is in Dila. Coffees are labeled with a region and then are graded based both on physical qualities as well as cup quality. Higher quality coffee fetches a higher price. Coffee is categorized into 81 generic grades of coffee at the ECX: Processing: Washed, Un-washed, Region: Yirgacheffe, Sidama, Limu, etc. Flavor: A (Representative of region's cup characteristics) B (Less so), Grade: 1-9 (defect count) Tracibility on the coffee an exporter purchases coffee through the ECX will, at most, be labelled as “Yirgacheffe: Konga” or “Sidama: Borena.” Once a specific lot is purchased, it is then shipped to the buyer (typically an exporter in Ethiopia). Full lots come divided in 30 bag chop sub-lots (parchment). Exporters who are buying and selling many containers will cup through the sub-lots to select the top lots and build a full container from these. While this system does ensure prompt payment and streamlines supply chain issues, it removes essentially all traceability from the coffee. This is problematic in the specialty world, where traceability is paramount. The ECX does not allow for complete traceability, but coffee cooperatives in Ethiopia do have the ability to go around the ECX and export the coffee themselves. Coffees that are exported by a cooperative can have traceability, possibly even to a single farmer. nft,norg

ChelChele is a microregion of Yirgacheffe Ethiopian Commodity Exchange (ECX) The ECX was started in 2008 to help protect farmers from market forces that might prevent them from making a living. Most of the coffee in Ethiopia is produced by small-holders who own 0.7 hectares, bumper crops often lead to big price drops, which can make it unprofitable for farmers to harvest their coffee. What the ECX does is commoditize grains- including sesame, beans, maize, wheat, and most importantly, coffee. This ensures prompt payment to farmers.

Here is a general rundown of how the ECX chain works in Ethiopia: Farmers deliver cherry to local wet mills. Some wet mills pay a premium for better quality cherry, some do not. The wet mill then delivers parchment coffee to a delivery station warehouse. In Yirgacheffe, this delivery station is in Dila. Coffees are labeled with a region and then are graded based both on physical qualities as well as cup quality. Higher quality coffee fetches a higher price. Coffee is categorized into 81 generic grades of coffee at the ECX: Processing: Washed, Un-washed, Region: Yirgacheffe, Sidama, Limu, etc. Flavor: A (Representative of region's cup characteristics) B (Less so), Grade: 1-9 (defect count) Tracibility on the coffee an exporter purchases coffee through the ECX will, at most, be labelled as “Yirgacheffe: Konga” or “Sidama: Borena.” Once a specific lot is purchased, it is then shipped to the buyer (typically an exporter in Ethiopia). Full lots come divided in 30 bag chop sub-lots (parchment). Exporters who are buying and selling many containers will cup through the sub-lots to select the top lots and build a full container from these. While this system does ensure prompt payment and streamlines supply chain issues, it removes essentially all traceability from the coffee. This is problematic in the specialty world, where traceability is paramount. The ECX does not allow for complete traceability, but coffee cooperatives in Ethiopia do have the ability to go around the ECX and export the coffee themselves. Coffees that are exported by a cooperative can have traceability, possibly even to a single farmer. nft,norg

Full lots come divided in 30 bag chop sub-lots (parchment). Exporters who are buying and selling many containers will cup through the sub-lots to select the top lots and build a full container from these.

Adado Our Adado Coffees are from the Gedeo zone, and are named after the local tribe "Adado". The region iscomprised of 7000 farmers, contributing to 8 Mills and exports 20-30 containers annually. Adado is my favorite micro region of Yirga Cheffe. Stone fruit, and lots of it, is the predominant flavour profile of this area. Apricots and peaches with supportive citrus and floral higher tones come together in a delightful cup. The natural process of these lots really complement the typical profile of the washed coffee beautifully. One of the great things about Ethiopian coffees is the complete mix of varietals.

Most of the coffee in Ethiopia is produced by small-holders who own 0.7 hectares, bumper crops often lead to big price drops, which can make it unprofitable for farmers to harvest their coffee.

Coffee is categorized into 81 generic grades of coffee at the ECX: Processing: Washed, Un-washed, Region: Yirgacheffe, Sidama, Limu, etc. Flavor: A (Representative of region's cup characteristics) B (Less so), Grade: 1-9 (defect count) Tracibility on the coffee an exporter purchases coffee through the ECX will, at most, be labelled as “Yirgacheffe: Konga” or “Sidama: Borena.” Once a specific lot is purchased, it is then shipped to the buyer (typically an exporter in Ethiopia). Full lots come divided in 30 bag chop sub-lots (parchment). Exporters who are buying and selling many containers will cup through the sub-lots to select the top lots and build a full container from these. While this system does ensure prompt payment and streamlines supply chain issues, it removes essentially all traceability from the coffee. This is problematic in the specialty world, where traceability is paramount. The ECX does not allow for complete traceability, but coffee cooperatives in Ethiopia do have the ability to go around the ECX and export the coffee themselves. Coffees that are exported by a cooperative can have traceability, possibly even to a single farmer. nft,norg

Kochere: Local tribe: Hama # of washing stations: 15 # of farmers: 25,000 Average farm size: 5 hectares Avg. annual production: 100 containers Kochere is southwest of the town of Yirga Cheffe and near a little village of Ch'elelek'tu in the Gedeo zone. While a "classic" Yirga coffee, all of the sub regions tend to have different flavour profiles. Adado - stone fruit, Konga - citrus and stone fruit, and for Kochere, it is a strong fruit tea that comes along with the citrus and stone fruit. When this is combined with processing as a natural, the result is expressed as red currant, lime, and raspberry lemonade. One of the great things about Ethiopian coffees is the complete mix of varietals. It is estimated that somewhere between six thousand and ten thousand varieties exist naturally in these highlands, the origin of coffee - The cross pollination of genetics is totally amazing. - Jason Ethiopian Commodity Exchange (ECX) The ECX was started in 2008 to help protect farmers from market forces that might prevent them from making a living. Most of the coffee in Ethiopia is produced by small-holders who own 0.7 hectares, bumper crops often lead to big price drops, which can make it unprofitable for farmers to harvest their coffee. What the ECX does is commoditize grains- including sesame, beans, maize, wheat, and most importantly, coffee. This ensures prompt payment to farmers. It also integrates all parts of the “eco-system” involved in a grains market, including warehousing, grading, trading, and payment. Access to information is emphasized, as farmers can obtain information about trading prices and local delivery points easily through dedicated telephone lines. Here is a general rundown of how the ECX chain works in Ethiopia: Farmers deliver cherry to local wet mills. Some wet mills pay a premium for better quality cherry, some do not. The wet mill then delivers parchment coffee to a delivery station warehouse. In Yirgacheffe, this delivery station is in Dila. Coffees are labeled with a region and then are graded based both on physical qualities as well as cup quality. Higher quality coffee fetches a higher price.

La Bolsa is an estate in La Libertad, Huehuetenango that is known for consistent quality year after year. It was founded by Dr. Jorge Vides. Dr. Jorge Vides was a doctor at the National Hospital of Huehuetenango, and the hospital was named after him following 30 years of dedicated service.In 1958, he bought La Bolsa farm, named for the river that runs through the land. He was committed to producing high quality coffees and loved his time on La Bolsa farm.His hard work and commitment to quality paid off; in 1984 Dr. Vides was given the “Outstanding Coffee Grower” award by ANACAFE. Dr. Vides passed away in1995 and the management of the farm is currently handled by the family's third generation. His family continues the commitment to quality that Dr. Jorge Vides started, and was the number 2 CoE winner in 2002. More from Maria Elena Video de Ovalle, a current producer at La Bolsa: In 1956 Dr. Jorge Vides Molina bought a piece of land named La Bolsa, it was given that name because it is located between large mountains. It has its own spring water and two rivers go across the property, leaving and island of the patio where we dry our coffee, the mill, farmhouse and school. One of our strong features is that we have our own natural spring water which while we use it we are also able to donate the surplus the Municipio La Mesilla, located at the border of Mexico. In the year 2002 we obtained second place at the national level of the Cup of Excellence with a rating of 94.98. The farm also counts with a school in order to alphabetize the children of the farm. It also has a hydroelectric and we work with earthworms for organic matter. We support the environment by complying with all the pre-requisites of the Certifications of Rainforest and C.A.F.E Practices. In the year 2005, Finca La Bolsa was chosen by Anacafe-Huehuetenango to impart a documentary with the German Channel D W T V, with the purpose of filming the process of high quality coffee production in Guatemala, which was viewed worldwide. nft,norg

minnesota-us Citric with nut shell. Citric with nut shell. Java is a new old origin for us.  New, as we are taking a new look at this old origin. The Dutch planted coffee in the late seventeenth century in Indonesia, starting on the island of Java. This was one of the first areas of coffee being grown as a cash crop.  Although the coffee was once prized on the international coffee market and still quite famous as a coffee origin, the cup has left us wanting.  It is a fully washed coffee, but we've found it to be mostly woody and relatively bland so have focused elsewhere till now.  The life and citrus of this coffee gave us hope and we plan to visit and see if we can souce solely typica and of course, riper cherries in the summer of 2014.  - Jason nft,norg
