Carmo de Minas Pulped Natural - Fazenda Irmas Pereira (GrainPro) 7346 60 Kg 35 Eniti Limited UK UK
london-eu 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

Producer: Eulino José de Novais Farm Size: 12 hectares, 8 hectares planted in coffee Images and description from theAlliance for Coffee Excellence Website: Fazenda Santa Bárbara (2014) — Eulino José de Novais History of the farm The farm was located in an area with land with all the characteristics for coffee-growing: good soil, elevation, cool climate. The Catuaiand Catucai varieties were chosen due to their resistance to pests and for being adapted to this climate; over time, the coffee plants which did not produce quality or quantity were replaced by others of the same species, thus creating a uniform plantation targeting quality and productivity. Today, Fazenda Santa Bárbara has several patios with greenhouse-like covered areas, andthe harvest is selective: The ripest coffee cherries are picked, and drying is followed very carefully, avoiding dew and other climactic adversities. Coffee processing system The coffee is processed by wet method, remaining in the trough for between 18 and 24 hours, then goes to the patio where it is spread as thinlyas possible, and drieduntil all water has been removed. It is then raked according to the space of the patio until reaching the specified humidity and is later bagged and taken to the depot to wait for final processing. nft,norg

For general Brazil pictures click here Brazil produces about 1/3 of the total world coffee production(including Arabica and Robusta)hence the importance in the global setting. A record harvest will make the coffee market tank while a significant frost will make it rally. This is one of my favorite origins to visit and it is very different than most. The food is great, there is modern infrastructure, and the Euro-Latin vibe is awesome! Brazilian coffee can be a significant component in a roaster’s menu specially if they use it in their espresso blend. Traditionally, most espresso recipes have included Brazil due to its characteristics: low acidity, high body, creamy, caramel, and chocolate notes, with a significant amount of sweetness.

They are estate specific coffees from farms which have made it numerous times into the Cup of Excellence auction. These coffees will be a step-up from your traditional Brazilian profile.

minnesota-us Savory, chocolate, burnt sugar and floral with intense acidity. Savory, chocolate, burnt sugar and floral with intense acidity. Deep in the heart of Africa is the tiny country of Burundi and deep in Burundi is Café Imports. We have been trekking to this tiny country located south of Rwanda on Lake Tanganyika since 2006. We have logged seven trips so far and spent about two months total on the ground. We have really enjoyed passing along our findings and experience: Our many trips have not been without results. We’ve cupped coffees from more than 50 washing stations over the years, pinpointing stations with the best cupping coffees. In typical fashion, of many of our favorite washing stations in Burundi, Kirema is in Kayanza. It is a small "cooperative," as around 1,350 small farmers deliver cherry here. This is part of a Café Imports project where a quality premium is paid above the normal "market rate" and this premium is paid directly back to the farmers. Burundi is just south of Rwanda but miles and miles away in the cup. The two countries share much; the same tribes, the same varietals, a similar history, but the cups are not even related. This is a case of terroir. While Rwandan coffees cup with lovely sugary and lemon citrus notes, the mountains of Burundi produce a deep fig and fruity coffee—almost a Malbec of a cup highlighted by a firm supporting acidity. Coffee in Burundi is a logistics challenge—even for the best of us. It is a particularly poor country, tied with Congo for the lowest GDP in Africa. The tiny landlocked country also shares the same tribal conflicts that Rwanda has experienced; unlike in Rwanda, however, they’ve never been reconciled. In spite of all this, our work and investment on the ground over the years has allowed us to consistently get the coffees we are proud of and that many of you have grown to love. — Jason Long View a picture album from Burundi here. nft,norg

Valle de Cauca is to the north and Nariño to the south. This coffee comes from multiple farmers in the Sierra and Paez communities within Cauca. 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 6 acres of land. They pick, pulp, ferment, and dry their coffee on raised beds with parabolic covers. They tend to work with similar varieties, some old, some relatively old, and some new, but the style is pretty much the same. We think that the terroir, sun, weather, and placement on the planet contribute largely to the flavor of these coffees, when they are picked ripe and handled properly. These coffees are selected by cup, and then blended like a Rhone wine or a local honey that comes from multiple fields. 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 in 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 the rest of her family also have coffee farms;they all work 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.It is complicated to deal with their schedules and conditions, nevertheless, she has figured out a way to motivate them and teach them how to work with love. On the other hand, what she loves the most about coffee is that although it is a dedicated task, itiswork in which all the familycan participate. She looks forward to her son and daughter continuing 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

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 of farms and coops and producing exceptional results. Carmen Cecelia is exemplary in this role. nft,norg

minnesota-us Vegetal, graham and tangy. Vegetal, graham and tangy. We purchased this lot through Asociacion de Cabildos Juan Tama, an indigenous group of coffee producers which comprises eight different cabildos (tribes). The 1,400+ families' total land 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 on coffee production in one way or the other. The eight cabildos represented here areare: 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 1,800 families of indigenous Colombians, organized into six resquerdos, or "reserves" and eight cabildos. The cabildos provide guidance, technical assistance, and quality control to the coffee-farming families who receive social benefits and a way to maintain independence. They have been producing coffee for generations, but have historically sold it in on the street, or to an independent collector. Recently, though, with some guidance and a their collective 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 varieties 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, which producers use to ferment and wash their coffee. Most have a small hand depulper, and ferment overnight in a tub for something like 10–13 hours, depending on the ambient temperature and humidity. The producers use a hand test in the morning to determine if the sugars are off the beans, and then transfer them into the drier, a small parabolic drier with a bamboo floor and domed poly roof to keep the afternoon's rain off. Once dried, the coffee goes to the communal warehouse in town where it is cataloged and cupped. Click here to see more pictures of Colombia and its coffee-growing regions. — Luis Arocha nft,Organic

london-eu Sugary and balanced with tangy tropical fruit, raisin and tomato jam. Sugary and balanced with tangy tropical fruit, raisin and tomato jam. 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.

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

minnesota-us Chocolate, clove and grapefruit. Chocolate, clove and grapefruit. These coffees come from a pair of farms owned by the Urquina Brothers: Each has his own plot in the same area, and the farms are separated not by geography, but name only. There are 8 total hectares planted with coffee on La Lomita and La Calera, and the brothers grow mainly Caturra, Castillo, and Colombia varieties, though they also have 10 lots with several other varieties, for a total of about 48,000 trees. The plants grow under a healthy cover of shade (the shade is so healthy, in fact, that it's common to find squirrels darting around the trees on the plantation), and is close to a mountain nature reserve, which is a preserved habitat for many different kinds of birds. The coffee on the brothers' farms are harvested by about 20 pickers, who are hired from different departments nearby during the harvest season. The coffee is depulped after picking, then allowed to ferment in open tanks until the next day, when it is washed three to four times to remove the mucilage. Drying takes from 15 to 20 days, in parabolic dryers. — Luis Arocha nft,norg

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.

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.

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. Rio Jorco’s owners are third-generation in the business. They are extremely focused on quality and conservation of nature. Los Lobos won Cup of Excellence #3 in 2012, and the owners have dedicated 3/4ths of the land to a private reserve. Rio Jorco is equipped with a complete wet- and dry-mill operation, which allows quality control throughout the process. They process coffee from their own farm, Los Lobos, but also purchase cherry from producers from the area. Producers are compensated based on cup quality, and get recognition for selling a microlot. Rio Jorco’s operations area is in the municipalities of Aserri, Acosta, Leon Cortez, Frailes, Desamparados, and Corralillo. These microregions of Tarrazu have won multiple Cup of Excellence awards, year after year.

Microlot Aguilera Bros - Finca Toño - Washed (GrainPro) 7636 69 Kg 9 Cafe Imports Fulfillment LLC USA
minnesota-us Chocolate, nutty and citrus fruit; tart citric acidity. Chocolate, nutty and citrus fruit; 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. 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.

Piero, our green buyer, was doing some field work in Tarrazu when the Land Cruiser he was renting blew a tire in the microregion of San Isidro de Leon Cortes. Piero was at a loss of how to get himself out of the situation without a spare tire, when a man with incredibly kind eyes and an impressive mustache pulled alongside him and said, "¿Necesita ayuda?" ("Do you need some help?") That man was Don Cesar Urena, the owner and operator of Don Pepe micromill. Don Cesar took Piero back to his home and helped him fix his tire. By chance, Piero looked outside and saw raised beds with incredibly impressive looking cherry selection on them, and he knew that this car malfunction was no accident. Holding in his excitement and disbelief that this was happening, Piero told Don Cesar that he was a coffee buyer, and the rest was history. Café Imports now imports nearly all of Don Cesar's coffee, from the several farms that deliver cherry to Don Pepe micromill. Don Cesar is a genius with Naturals and Honeys, and his ability to train his partner farms in cherry selection is honestly some of the best we have ever seen. They called their receiving tanks with only deep red cherry sangre de toro,or "bull's blood." San Isidro de Leon Cortes is truly like paradise. The perfect microclimate and natural water sources make this area an incredibly lush tropical setting. Don Cesar has been producing coffee his entire life.

Dried fruit and sugar aromas with tomato, fruit, toffee and floral flavors; citric and tartaric acidity. Herbazu, owned by the Barrantes family, was a pioneer with their micromill at the beginning of the 2000s. They were selling to Starbucks back then at good prices. Don Carlos of La Perla Del Cafe spun-off Herbazu, put in his own mill, and currently owns five farms. He only produces about 250 bags a year, but wanted to control his quality all the way, and also have his wife and two daughters involved in the business—hence opening his own impressive operation. He was the first to get SL-28 seeds in Costa Rica, and selflessly gave them away to his fellow producers to help everyone improve their coffee quality and be leaders in coffee innovation in the region. He will also have Geshaproduction in the coming years. The quality in his work is impeccable, as he sees his coffee like wine. He truly only picks ripe cherry, or sangre de toro ("bull's blood") as it is called in Costa Rica, and he doesn't let anyone in his drying patio with dirty shoes. We were blown away by the attention to detail at La Perla del Cafe, and are extremely grateful for Don Carlos's partnership with Café Imports. nft,norg

Las Lajas is an organic micromill located in Sabanilla de Alajuela in the Central Valley region of Costa Rica.

During the harvest, Francisca will measure the Brix content in the coffee cherry to determine the optimal time to pick the 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, coffee turned hourly on the bed Red Honey: 100% mucilage left on, coffee several times a day on the bed (less frequently than Yellow Honey) Black Honey: 100% mucilage left on, coffee turned only once per day Perla Negra: Natural process, coffee is turned normally on raised beds Alma Negra: Natural process, coffee turned only a few times a day on raised beds (The honey process of leaving 100% of the mucilage on in all "levels" of honey is distinctive to Las Lajas.

Café Imports is excited to be working with the Aguilera Bros in West Valley. The Aguileras are a total of 12 brothers and sisters, all of whom are involved in coffee from the time of 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, work the drying patios, prune the coffee fields, fertilize, etc, year-round. The Aguilera Bros understand quality at the farm level 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. The Aguilera Bros are dry-milling their own coffee, and are also experimenting with different varieties, such as Pacamara and Gesha. We are very excited to see what each new harvest will bring from Aguilera Bros! 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.

Microlot 3 Don Pepe - David Rivera - Natural (GrainPro) 7974 69 Kg 7 Cafe Imports Fulfillment LLC USA
minnesota-us David Ureña also known as "Macho" is a hard working producer who delivers his cherry to the Don Pepe micromill. He puts his passion into his farm and the results in this past harvest show it (2014-2015). This was the first year that David sold his coffee to Café Imports, he previously sold his coffee to cooperatives. He says he wasn't sure about selling to speciallty buyers, but after this first exchange at the Don Pepe mill and Café Imports, he is motivated to continue gearing his crop for the specialty market. The story of Don Cesar Urena and Café Imports is one that honestly sounds like we made it up. Piero, our green buyer, was doing some field work in Tarrazu when the Land Cruiser he was renting blew a tire in the microregion of San Isidro de Leon Cortes. Piero was at a loss of how to get himself out of the situation without a spare tire, when a man with incredibly kind eyes and an impressive mustache pulled alongside him and said, "¿Necesita ayuda?" ("Do you need some help?") That man was Don Cesar Urena, the owner and operator of Don Pepe micromill. Don Cesar took Piero back to his home and helped him fix his tire. By chance, Piero looked outside and saw raised beds with incredibly impressive looking cherry selection on them, and he knew that this car malfunction was no accident. Holding in his excitement and disbelief that this was happening, Piero told Don Cesar that he was a coffee buyer, and the rest was history. Café Imports now imports nearly all of Don Cesar's coffee, from the several farms that deliver cherry to Don Pepe micromill. Don Cesar is a genius with Naturals and Honeys, and his ability to train his partner farms in cherry selection is honestly some of the best we have ever seen. They called their receiving tanks with only deep red cherry sangre de toro,or "bull's blood." San Isidro de Leon Cortes is truly like paradise. The perfect microclimate and natural water sources make this area an incredibly lush tropical setting. Don Cesar has been producing coffee his entire life. "The natural environment we have here...no one can take that away," he says. We are so proud to call Don Cesar a partner and friend in Costa Rica.

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 nonexistent, 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 the coffee is not washed. During the harvest, Francisca will measure the Brix content in the coffee cherry to determine the optimal time to pick the 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, coffee turned hourly on the bed Red Honey: 100% mucilage left on, coffee several times a day on the bed (less frequently than Yellow Honey) Black Honey: 100% mucilage left on, coffee turned only once per day Perla Negra: Natural process, coffee is turned normally on raised beds Alma Negra: Natural process, coffee turned only a few times a day on raised beds (The honey process of leaving 100% of the mucilage on in all "levels" of honey is distinctive to Las Lajas.

Dried fruit and sugar aromas with tomato, fruit, toffee and floral flavors; citric and tartaric acidity.

Don Carlos of La Perla Del Cafe spun-off Herbazu, put in his own mill, and currently owns five farms. He only produces about 250 bags a year, but wanted to control his quality all the way, and also have his wife and two daughters involved in the business—hence opening his own impressive operation. He was the first to get SL-28 seeds in Costa Rica, and selflessly gave them away to his fellow producers to help everyone improve their coffee quality and be leaders in coffee innovation in the region. He will also have Geshaproduction in the coming years. The quality in his work is impeccable, as he sees his coffee like wine. He truly only picks ripe cherry, or sangre de toro ("bull's blood") as it is called in Costa Rica, and he doesn't let anyone in his drying patio with dirty shoes. We were blown away by the attention to detail at La Perla del Cafe, and are extremely grateful for Don Carlos's partnership with Café Imports. nft,norg

Dona Francisca and Don Oscar Chacon of Las Lajas micromill are third-generation coffee producers in their family. They inherited their farms from their grandparents, and are known for being among 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 nonexistent, 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 the coffee is not washed. During the harvest, Francisca will measure the Brix content in the coffee cherry to determine the optimal time to pick the 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, coffee turned hourly on the bed Red Honey: 100% mucilage left on, coffee several times a day on the bed (less frequently than Yellow Honey) Black Honey: 100% mucilage left on, coffee turned only once per day Perla Negra: Natural process, coffee is turned normally on raised beds Alma Negra: Natural process, coffee turned only a few times a day on raised beds (The 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.) Café Imports is excited to bring you, once again, high-quality and traceable microlots from Costa Rica. 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. — Piero Cristiani nft,norg

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.

origin Ecuador has great potential and is one of my favorite origins for being exotic but also having the quality to back it up; the big issue we see at the moment is volume.  The country as a whole only exports 100 containers/year (40,000 lbs/container) of Washed Arabica.  Café Imports alone moves more than 100 containers/year.  The rest of the coffee Ecuador produces is low quality Naturals and Robusta to sustain its huge instant coffee market for internal consumption and exports.  To put this into perspective: Origin Country / Containers per Year (estimate) Colombia / 32,000 Peru / 12,000 Bolivia / 300 Ecuador / 100 This lot comes from a small association in the south of Ecuador bordering the Peruvian border.  This association is part of a bigger federation.  The association has a great leadership and this has helped them position themselves as a top player in Ecuadorian coffee.  They've won and placed in Taza Dorada multiple times.   The producers in this area still have traditional varieties such as Typica, Caturra, and Bourbon which has been key to their success.  Rust has been an issue for most of these producers and having organic certification limits the products you can apply to your farm making it tougher. 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

Fabian Lomas’ coffees have been an incredible champion on our cupping table, full of wild flavors that we have truly not experienced in coffee before. In 2014, Cafe Imports sponsored the World Aeropress Championship by supplying the competion coffee....when faced with the decision on what coffee to use, Las Cinco was a no-brainer. Read this blog post from Cafe Imports' Joe Marrocco about the roasting process for the Las Cinco compeition coffee. Ecuador is a fascinating origin: it’s exotic in many ways but the quality is also there and the potential is huge. The cup profiles are very interesting with Typica, Caturra, and Bourbon dominating as far as varieties go. Ecuador exports only about 100 containers/year (40,000 lbs green coffee/container) of Washed Arabica. To put this into perspective: Origin Country / Containers per Year (estimate) Colombia / 32,000 Peru / 12,000 Bolivia / 300 Ecuador / 100 For many of the above reasons there are multiple buyers trying to buy the little good coffee there is. Many times this has led to failed attempts at consolidating enough coffee to export it. This year, Café Imports, was successful and will bring world-class Ecuador’s to the US Market including Taza Dorada #1, #4, and #9. 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 nft,norg

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

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—a much cooler climate. It is a hard area to access. Coffee is traded in parchment here, which 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 obstacles, such as yield risk: Each coffee will yield various amounts of green depending on the amount of defects in the lot. I've personally been criticized by some Santa Ana producers as to why we are buying coffee in Chalatenango. 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. 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. We have bought some coffees grown at 1900 meters in this area, which could be one of the first El Sals at this altitude. — Piero Cristiani nft,norg

Recognized under the national labor union, the YCFCU represents 43,794 farmers over 6 districts including Yirgacheffe,Gedeb, Wanago, Dilla Zuria, Bule, and Kochere. Shortly after this the Ethiopian government, in support of small producers, added coffee into the Ethiopian Commodities Exchange (ECX). This would allow, amongst many things, for farmers to get paid in a timely manner. The nature of exchanges is to homogenize a product and sell it at a market price hence it doesn’t allow for premiums to be paid for a superior product. With this we saw a decline in quality. Cooperatives, like Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union (YCFCU), are exempt from going through the ECX. We are working alongside YCFCU to pay premiums for better cherry selection at the washing station level to bring back the classic Yirgacheffe profile that was obscured for some years. From Yirgacheffeunion.com: The Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperatives Union (YCFCU), currently represents over 43,794 farmers belonging to more than 300,000 families, and was established in June 2002. Its currently 23 member cooperatives are all located in Gedeo, southern Ethiopia. This area is in a region that is famous for coffee growing in the country.The 62,004 hectares gardens that are dedicated to coffee alone, on average produce 9,000 tons of Yirgacheffe and 3,000 tons of Sidamo washed coffee each year. The area also produces 24,000 tons of sun-dried coffee annually. The Ethiopian traditional coffee growing method is mainly manifested among the Yirgacheffe coffee growing farmers. While the protection and handling of the coffee is carried out on a manual basis, the development is being done with the use of organic natural fertilizers.

Shortly after this the Ethiopian government, in support of small producers, added coffee into the Ethiopian Commodities Exchange (ECX). This would allow, amongst many things, for farmers to get paid in a timely manner. The nature of exchanges is to homogenize a product and sell it at a market price hence it doesn’t allow for premiums to be paid for a superior product. With this we saw a decline in quality. Cooperatives, like Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union (YCFCU), are exempt from going through the ECX.

This area is in a region that is famous for coffee growing in the country.The 62,004 hectares gardens that are dedicated to coffee alone, on average produce 9,000 tons of Yirgacheffe and 3,000 tons of Sidamo washed coffee each year. The area also produces 24,000 tons of sun-dried coffee annually. The Ethiopian traditional coffee growing method is mainly manifested among the Yirgacheffe coffee growing farmers. While the protection and handling of the coffee is carried out on a manual basis, the development is being done with the use of organic natural fertilizers. Pests are controlled by using the Biological natural means. In this manner, the development work is done through the application of the age -old cultural traditional means rather than the artificial modern pest, insect and weeds control by chemical and fertilizers.

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

It is estimated that somewhere between six thousand and ten thousand varietals 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. 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

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 smallholders 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, Unwashed; Region: Yirgacheffe, Sidama, Limu, etc.; Flavor: A (Representative of region's cup characteristics) B (Less so), Grade: 1–8 (Defect count) Traceability 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 sublots (parchment). Exporters who are buying and selling many containers will cup through the sublots 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

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

Most of the coffee in Ethiopia is produced by smallholders 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, Unwashed; Region: Yirgacheffe, Sidama, Limu, etc.; Flavor: A (Representative of region's cup characteristics) B (Less so), Grade: 1–8 (Defect count) Traceability 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 sublots (parchment). Exporters who are buying and selling many containers will cup through the sublots 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

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.

This year we are also bringing in microlots from CODECH.  These are from higher altitude farms harvested later in the year and from specific associations under the CODECH umbrella. -Piero CODECH (Coordinator of organizations for the development of Concepcion Huista) is located in the municipality of Concepcion Huista in the department of Huehuetenango in Guatemala.  It is comprised of 10 different organizations. CODECH comes to be in August of 1998, through the representatives of the different organizing bodies in search of alternative development programs for Concepcion Huista.  Out of all the organizations 4 of these focus mainly on coffee (organic and conventional). One of CODECH’s main objectives is the participation of women in society and the workforce.    Projects *Organic farming workshops *General agriculture workshops *National and international commercialization workshops *Teacher development workshops *Women specific workshops *Political incidence *Women rights and gender equity *Self esteem *Leadership *Medical attention *Household development *Classes by mail and radio station Gregorio, the general manager of CODECH, is pushing for farmers to renovate their farms.  He thinks they are underproducing at the moment and believes they could be producing about 3 times their current volume on average. His reasoning behind the organic certification is not only to be environmentally friendly but to be independent from transnationals which produce fertilizers.  They are also want independence from the price of oil (used in fertilizers).  Gregorio also believes that there is a growing market for organic products and wants to meet that demand.

Nuevo Oriente Olopa (GrainPro) 7659 69 Kg 274 Cafe Imports Fulfillment LLC USA
minnesota-us Caramel, savory, cedar, butter and raisin. Caramel, savory, cedar, butter and raisin. The Olopa municipality, a small but mighty region within the Chiquimula Department in Guatemala's eastern highlands, is known for its production of stellar specialty coffees. Most of the producers in this region are members of the Chorti Maya indigenous community, and are multigenerational smallholder farmers who rely on coffee for about 90% of their annual household income. Due in part to the high-quality varieties grown in the region, as well as the unusual microclimate caused by Olopa's 1400-meter altitude and longstanding good farming practices, the Asociacion de Productores de Olopa (APOLO) co-operative has won multiple regional and national awards for its farmer-members' coffees. Like Olopa itself, APOLO is a small but mighty group of local producers who joined forces in 2005 to promote the local coffee market and allow for farm and community development in the region. In 2008, APOLO leaders worked to establish wet mills throughout the region to allow producers to process and sell their coffee in parchment, rather than tendering cherry to local buyers or mills at a lower price. This coffee represents the work of eight of the 32 APOLO producer-members, and represents a range of the varieties and microclimates that comprise these farms and this region. nft,norg

Aside from coffee, these producers also sell organic honey, and the co-op offers technical assistance to smallholder members to allow them to achieve and maintain their certifications.
