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) name change 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

Microlot Maridabi (GrainPro) 6876 60 Kg 9 Cafe Imports Fulfillment LLC USA
minnesota-us Floral and toffee flavors with cane juice sweetness and intense, tart green grape acidity. Floral and toffee flavors with cane juice sweetness and intense, tart green grape acidity. SEGEC owns Mpanga Washing Station, located at the Mpanga Hill, in the Kabuye zone in the Kayanza Province of Burundi. Maridabi is a region within Kayanza, and the coffee is processed in Mpanga Washing Station. Mpanga Washing Station is supplied with cherry by 3,400 farmers, and the facility is equipped with 450 drying beds, six pulping machines and two pressers. Quality is present along the entire production chain. SEGEC encourages the producers by giving them incentives if they harvest red and high quality cherry. This is the starting point in the quality production of Mpanga. Coffee is fully washed and fermented. Once the coffee is fermented, it is pre-dried under shade in order to protect the coffee from the sunlight. After being pre-dried, the coffee is moved to drying beds located under the sun. Coffee is carefully dried and constantly moved to achieve a even dry process. This process of moving the coffee permits the parchment to stay intact, creating a beautiful parchment layer that is not damaged by the sunlight. 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 south of Rwanda on Lake Tanganyika since 2006. We have logged multiple trips so far, and have 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. Burundi is just south of Rwanda but miles and miles away in the cup. The two countries share much: the same tribes, the same coffee varieties, and 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 nation 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

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, out ofmany 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.

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 which 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 2.5 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 family can 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 cherry. After being depulped, the coffee is wet fermented for 8–10 hours. Once the fermentation is done, coffee is moved to parabolic dryers to be dried for 8–10 days. nft,norg

In 2011, he won the first price at the Cup of Excellence with coffee from this farm. An unprecedented price of $45/lb was paid for the Cup of Excellence coffee. 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! It looks promising and should bring us more top-notch coffee throughout the years. Arnulfo Leguizamo COE Secrets from Noah N on Vimeo. nft,norg

A second-generation coffee grower, Carmen Cecilia has worked diligently with her family, elevating her 3-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 cherry 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 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 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

Regional Select program was created to highlight the unique profiles we have found that are inherent to specific microregions within Colombia. The regions we are focusing on are Huila, Nariño, Cauca and Tolima. The primary difference between the Microlot Program and Regional Select is the preshipment cupping score. This program adds yet another tier to our stratified buying structure in Colombia, designed to further reward quality. As the coffees are received at origin, they are separated based on quality and local areas. The separations look like this: Regional Select: 86–87 pts Microlot Program: 87–89 pts 90 Points Program: 90+ pts 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 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 similar varieties, 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 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 many fields in a 4-mile radius. nft,norg

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; mitaca ("fly crop") 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 cherry, ferment the coffee to adequate level, and dry the coffee between 10–11.5% 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's warehouse. Aromas del Sur has a project called “Universidad del Café” (coffee university), the focus of which is to teach and implement quality procedures among the group's producers. The goal of the project is to train the producers in agricultural practices, commercial know-how, and cupping ability. Aromas del Sur's warehouse functions 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 it's considered 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

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 which deliver cherry to this mill. This program has allowed us to separate out lots from specific communities which score over 86 points, and pay a quality premium that the individual communities 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 microregion, 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 hardworking producers.

Producer: Diego Abarca Quirós (20 years producing) Farm Size: 20 Manzanas Seasonal Employees: 30 Permanent Employees: 3 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. Café Imports is excited to bring you, once again, high-quality and traceable microlots from Costa Rica. — Piero Cristiani For more information on coffee production in Costa Rica, visit our Costa Rica origin page. nft,norg

Microlot Don Pepe La Casa de Pepe Honey (GrainPro) 7843 69 Kg 7 Cafe Imports Fulfillment LLC USA
minnesota-us Citric, herb, graham and lemon. Citric, herb, graham and lemon. 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.

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.

Microlot Aguilera Bros Finca Angelina Washed (GrainPro) 7838 69 Kg 60 Cafe Imports Fulfillment LLC USA
minnesota-us Tangy and sugary with caramel and lime flavors; tartaric and citric acidity. Tangy and sugary with caramel and lime flavors; tartaric and citric acidity. 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. 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.

minnesota-us Raisin, caramel, raspberry, lemonade and floral with crisp, sparkling and winey acidity. Raisin, caramel, raspberry, lemonade and floral with crisp, sparkling and winey acidity. The property at La Montaña has been family owned for 100 years. Producer Don Roger inherited La Montaña from his father in 1962, and, until recently, has grown mainly beans and grass. The cultivation of coffee at La Montaña was formerly on a small scale, since there was no road and transportation was very expensive. When harvesting, they had to transport the coffee almost 2 kilometers by horse along trails and through gorges. In 1998, 5,000 coffee trees were planted to cover 1 hectare. During the planting, all of the soil and seed beds were transported 600 meters by horse. In 2001, it was possible for Don Roger to hire a tractor to open a road, which to date has solved the transport of mature coffee. Since then, La Montaña has increased its planting area according to the potential that the land offers, and is produced with methods geared towards a high production level with strict cultural practices friendly to the environment.

minnesota-us Citric, tart and thick with coffee cherry, floral and herb flavor. Citric, tart and thick with coffee cherry, floral and herb flavor. 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. 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.

minnesota-us Toffee and salted nut. Toffee and salted nut. David Ureña, also known as "Macho," is a hardworking 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.

Microlot 5 Don Pepe - David Rivera - Honey (GrainPro) 7650 69 Kg 2 Cafe Imports Fulfillment LLC USA
minnesota-us Cherry aromatics, clean coffee cherry, lemon and chocolate. Cherry aromatics, clean coffee cherry, lemon and chocolate. 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.

minnesota-us Toffee, raisin and savory herb with citric and tartaric acidity. Toffee, raisin and savory herb with citric and tartaric acidity. La Candelilla is a pioneer when it comes to micromills: It was one of the first micromills established in the year 2000, and has been selling specialty coffee since then. The Gesha has been bought by Starbucks and featured in their Black Apron program in the past. La Candelilla is a family owned and run micromill in the Tarrazu region of Costa Rica. Tarrazu is the biggest-producing coffee growing region in Costa Rica, with its coffee culture ingrained to daily lives of its inhabitants. Most of the farms produce Caturra and Catuai, with some Gesha, SL-28, and Typica, and have an area of more than 40 hectares total. Coffee is wet-milled and dry-milled on-site. Didier, the owner of Finca Palmilera, won second place in the 2013 Cup of Excellence with his Gesha, which was a favorite of ours in the competition. 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. 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 carrying are all sourced 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 jute with its corresponding marks.

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

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.

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.

Est Ship: Aug 2015
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

He liked to purchase high-altitude farms, such as Las Nubes and Finca Kilimanjaro, and the family continues to produce heirloom variety Bourbon coffee on Las Nubes. Coffee was first cultivated in El Salvador in the 19th century, and it its beginnings it was only for domestic consumption. In the middle on the century, the government encouraged the people giving tax breaks, exemption from military service for coffee workers and elimination of export duties for new producers. 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. In the following years, coffee production becamean important economic factor in El Salvador. The coffee of El Salvador is known for its old-growth heirloom Bourbon variety, which was first cultivated in the early 1800s. El Salvador, compared to its counterparts in the region, has preserved a substantial amount of Bourbon varieties due to the civil war: During the war years, while other countries were introducing Catimors and Catimor hybrids, El Salvador's attention was elsewhere, and the heirloom varieties remained. Farms now have old-stock Bourbon trees (as old as 50–80 years old in extreme cases). &emdash; Piero Cristiani nft,norg

When the bags arrive at the mill, Rio Zarco takes samples and puts them through a computer program which calculates the percentage of ripe cherry as opposed to green, semi-ripe, dry, and floating cherries. This way there is an objective standard to measure quality, and farmers who have picked well receive a bonus.

In Potrero, they have not planted as many hybrid varieties as they have elsewhere in El Salvador (such as Catimor in Buenos Aires), so the general quality of the cup is top-notch. The Rio Zarco mill has a cherry receiving station in the middle of Potrero Grande, making it easy for farmers to drop off their bags after they're done picking. Here they do an initial screening, and all bags are tagged with I.D.s telling us the farm, variety, and quality of picking. When the bags arrive at the mill, Rio Zarco takes samples and puts them through a computer program which calculates the percentage of ripe cherry as opposed to green, semi-ripe, dry, and floating cherries. This way there is an objective standard to measure quality, and farmers who have picked well receive a bonus.

YCFCU Konga is the primary cooperative for YCFCU, with 2,372 producers, contributing to 16 containers' worth ofannual production. The average YCFCU co-op farmer owns and grows on just0.7 hectares, which is why it takes so many producers to accumulate a relatively small amount of coffee (considering). This coffee was fermented for 48 to 72 hours before being pre-dried for one day, then fully dried for 8 to 13 days. The four localities (kebele) of YCFCU Konga include: Wote, Seda, Birbis, and Kella. The YCFCU was organized in 2002 in an effort to establish stability amidst fluctuating coffee prices. Recognized under the national labor union, the YCFCU represents 43,794 farmers over six 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.

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 Sidama 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 done with the use of natural fertilizers. Pests are controlled by 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 weed control by chemical and fertilizers.

The ancestral tribe surrounding this YCFCU co-op in the Gedeo Zone of Yirgacheffe is called "Adado,"which where the co-op gets its name. There are eight mills in the Adado region, with about 7,000 farmers represented. The Adado region produces 20 to 30 containers annually. The YCFCU was organized in 2002 in an effort to establish stability amidst fluctuating coffee prices. Recognized under the national labor union, the YCFCU represents 43,794 farmers over six 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.

Gelana Abaya Local tribe: Tore Language: Omoromic Number of producers: 9000-10,000 Annual Production: 100+ containers Average farm size: 3.5 hectares Number of mills in the area: 5 Processing: Coffee is covered during the hottest part of the day,Lots of fresh compost used in this area. 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

While a "classic" Yirga coffee, all of the sub regions tend to have different flavor 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.

Other common local crops include bananas and corn. Konga is about four kilometers south of the town of Yirgacheffe, and nearby both Harfusa and Biloya.

While it is common to see small-producer specific lots in Central and South America, it is not in East Africa. In part, this is due to the smaller-size farms in East Africa,and their lots and production being too small to make it practical to be "kept separate." It is common to see estate (large plantations) specific lots out of Ethiopia but these are rare.

My most memorable experience in coffee was with a sundried Ethiopian while working at a local coffee shop in the Twin Cities. This was a natural Yirgacheffe in the Summer of 2009. I had no idea coffee could taste so different from what I was used to in washed coffees. I remember intense blueberries and strawberries in the flavor with a delicate floral aftertaste. This was a very pristine and complex cup which opened my eyes as to what coffee could offer. 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. — Piero nft,Organic

While it is common to see small-producer specific lots in Central and South America it is not in East Africa. In part, is due to thesmaller sized farms in East Africa and their lots and production being too small to make it practical to be "kept separate". It is common to see estate (large plantations) specific lots out of Ethiopia but these are rare. Café Imports and YCFCU are proud of this achievement and happy to be able to provide this type of traceability. Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union (YCFCU) YCFCU has around 50,000 farmers in 24 cooperatives. They harvest coffee from December through February. Most farms in Ethiopia are from small-holders on 0.7 ha of land on average. During my short coffee career I’ve seen quality of Ethiopian coffee spike and tank and spike back up.

Washed Yirgacheffe Grade-1 Kochere (GrainPro) 7254 60 Kg 38 CALM Melbourne Australia
melbourne-au Syrupy apricot and sweet-tart Meyer lemon with tangy acidity and saturated sweetness. Syrupy apricot and sweet-tart Meyer lemon with tangy acidity and saturated sweetness. 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. 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

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 varieties. It is estimated that somewhere between 6,000–10,000 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 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

Washed Yirgacheffe Grade-1 Konga (GrainPro) 7287 60 Kg 151 Cafe Imports Fulfillment LLC USA
minnesota-us Floral aromatics with sweet lemon curd, orange and raspberry flavors and a creamy mouthfeel. Floral aromatics with sweet lemon curd, orange and raspberry flavors and a creamy mouthfeel. Our Konga coffee, from a microregion within the Gedeo Zone of Yirgacheffe, is named after the local tribe, Konga Sede. There are 5,000 farmers and 10 mills represented in this lot. One mill can produce an average of five containers of washed coffee, and four of natural-process coffee. The region's average annual production is between 40 and 50 containers. Other common local crops include bananas and corn. Coffee here is processed using wet fermentation for six hours, then a post-fermentation soak. There is a 24-hour pre-dry before the coffee is laid on raised beds to dry for 7–10 days. Konga is about four kilometers south of the town of Yirgacheffe, and nearby both Harfusa and Biloya. We've always liked the Konga microregion of Yirgacheffee for both its strong citrus (mostly lemon this year) and supportive stone-fruit flavors of peach and apricot and when this is combined with processing as a natural, the result is dried cherry, cranberry, and lemonade-like acidity.

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 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 three times their current volume on average. His reasoning behind achieving and maintaining 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.

minnesota-us Chocolate and butter with a sweet, nutty aftertaste. Chocolate and butter with a sweet, nutty aftertaste. In the middle of the 1700s, the Jesuits brought the first coffee trees to Guatemala, as ornamental plants. At this period, Guatemala was not producing coffee, but they were very familiar with farming other agricultural products. By 1835, the government wanted to encourage the production of coffee, and to do so, they offered economic awards to those farmers who cultivated 20,000 pounds of coffee. In 1859 the first exportation of coffee was made, and it consisted in 383 60 kg bags shipped to Europe. After 1859 the coffee production and exportation started to increase due to the high interest of the producers to be involved in this new product. In 1888 Guatemalan coffee was awarded for being an excellent product in the World Fest held in Paris. In 1940 the coffee exportations were suspended because of the World War II. By 1960 the “Producers Union” was created, which later became the National Coffee Organization “Asosiacion Nacional del Café” (ANACAFE). By 2005 the market of specialty coffee became more attractive for the Guatemalan Coffee and the producers have increasinglyfocused on the production of specialty coffee. Today Guatemala has a very strong in-country support system for coffee producers. They also have a strong marketing presence to promote Guatemalan coffee globally.

Nuevo Oriente Olopa (GrainPro) 7659 69 Kg 273 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
