ci-usa-minnesota Sweet and tart with a smooth mouthfeel; fruity with chocolate, honey and lemon flavors. Sweet and tart with a smooth mouthfeel; fruity with chocolate, honey and lemon flavors. Fazenda Alta Vista is Managed by Robson Vilela, who purchased the 84-hectare property in 2001. In his previous life, Robson was a dentist, saving money until he was able to buy property for coffee farming. Coffee was planted in 2004, though heavy rains kept production down for the first several years. Robson's coffee was first harvested in 2007, where his crop took 7th place in the 2007 Brazil Cup of Excellence. Alta Vista has since delivered on the reputation of quality, returning to the Cup of Excellence finals in 2011 and 2012. The farm is now 90 total hectares, with 75 planted in coffee, growing both Yellow Bourbon and Yellow Catucai. The staff at Fazenda Alta Vista is much smaller than other farms in the region. Robson made an agreement to pay higher wages than other farms in the area, resulting in zero staff turnover since 2007. "I always ask the opinion of the employees in my day-to-day life," Robson said. "I never make an important decision alone because they were born here, they know a lot about coffee, and I always learn a lot from them. Every morning we gathered under a big tree near the farmyard where we talked and discussed the activities that each one will carry out on that day." Fazenda Alta vista also produces bananas, which are intercropped with the coffee trees providing sufficient shade. The multitude of banana trees on the farm also created a condition for the coffee trees to survive unexpected drought and other environmental difficulty. There are also macademia trees, which contribute shade and wind protection. For more information about coffee production in Brazil, visit our Brazil origin page. nft,norg,Carmo de Minas

melbourne-au Red berries, pear, hazelnut, chocolate, caramel. Red berries, pear, hazelnut, chocolate, caramel. The Mantiqueira microregion is home to over 2,000 smallholder coffee farmers with a quality potential that urges to be explored. Our exporting partners at Carmo Coffees recognized this potential and decided to build two strategically placed mills (called beneficios) with washing and processing capabilities, strategically selected for their accessibility to the region's coffee growers. Beneficio Pedra Branca is nestled in the Pedra Branca mountainside in Pedralva City, and the other, Beneficio Presente do Sol, is located in the city of Heliodora—both beneficios were farms managed by their former owners before joining Carmo Coffees. Pedra Branca was the first of the beneficios, with Carmo Coffees' partnership starting in 2012. Carmo bought the farm in 2013, making it part of their official structure. Following the same model, Presente do Sol became part of Carmo Coffees in 2014. The proximity of the beneficios enable the region's quality potential with accessibility to modern equipment for processing where there was otherwise a barrier to entry due to lack of knowledge, time, budget, infrastructure, and the price of labor involved with processing at a quality standard. The municipalities served by Pedra Branca are Pedralva, São José do Alegre, Santa Rita do Sapucaí, Pouso Alegre, Cristina, Careaçu, Jesuânia, Cachoeira de Minas, and Olímio Noronha, among others. Beneficio Pedra Branca has eight mechanical dryers, covered patios, drying greenhouses, and three African drying beds, as well as a wet mill and washing and sorting machines. Pedra Branca serves about 600 producers currently but has the capacity to work with 2,000. The production of both beneficios is at 50,000 bags annually.

Coffee growing in Carmo de Minas has been the business of the Pereira family since 1979. When the family started managing the 215-hectare farmland at Fazenda Santa Ines, it was already planted in coffee, but they opted to plant new varieties and update the work model in order to improve quality and productivity. At the time the family took over management at Santa Ines, the Carmo de Minas region was experiencing problems with quality. The family hired experts to help improve quality, they introduced new harvesting/processing techniques, and they also implemented the newest farm technology available. Since making these changes, the coffees from Santa Ines have stood out in regional and national contests: In 2005, a sample from Fazenda Santa Ines won first place in Cup of Excellence Brazil, with a world-record 95.85 score. The farm is planted with Catucai, Yellow and Red Catuai, Yellow and Red Bourbon, and Acaia on about 100 hectares; the rest of the farmland is used for banans, corn, and dairy cows. Annual coffee production is around 4,000 bags. "In Carmo, soil and climatic conditions are favorable to the coffee. It is what French people call 'terroir,' and our region is doing its homework; we are on the right way. Now we can only expect better times, "the family says.

Lots of chocolate and cacao flavors and a gentle orange acidity; apricot and hazelnut aftertaste. Fazenda IP was first purchased in 1967, by Isidro Pereira, father of Luiz Paolo Dias Pereira. (Fazenda IP takes its name from Isidro's initials.) Luiz was pursuing an education in agriculture at the time the farm came into the family, but after five years, he joined his father to expand production and improve quality. By 1974, Luiz began expanding Fazenda IP: It now covers an area of 720 hectares—500 percent growth over the farm's original size. This estate cultivates Yellow Catuai, Yellow Catucai, Acaia, and Yellow Bourbon. The coffee is processed using both the natural and honey method. Nestled outside the city of Carmo de Minas, the farm sits at a range of 950–1200 meters. The higher altitude favors a slow ripening of cherry and permits selective picking, which are decisive factors to produce coffees of exceptional quality.

Fazenda Santa Lucia producer Hélcio Carneiro Pinto has been working in coffee since he was 15 years old, helping his mother produce and process crops. In 1976, Hélcio married Glycia Pereira Carneiro and began to manage Santa Lucia. In the 1990's, Hélcio was one of the founders of Aprocam, a group of pioneers that began a movement for the pursuit of quality coffee in the region of Carmo de Minas. Aprocam introduced the idea of processing pulped naturals on Carmo de Minas and Hélcio was the first producer to get the machines for this process. Since that development at Santa Lucia, Hélcio has worked with universities and scientists, and he has taken trips to other coffee producing countries to further his knowledge on the production of specialty coffee. Today, Hélcio and Fazenda Santa Lucia maintain a worldwide reputation for quality Brazilian coffees. Fazenda Santa Lucia is 740 hectares with 100 hectares of coffee: Yellow Bourbon, Yellow Catuai, and Acaia. This is a model farm of the Carmo de Minas region and is innovating in both quality and production methods with hopes of producing 4500 bags in the future.

The first cultivation of coffee in the region occurred at the Sertão Estate, which gives its name to the group. Inherited by José Isidro Pereira and Nazareth Dias Pereira, and currently managed by their sons and in-laws, the estate is still part of the group, which also has other properties, including the Santa Inês and São Benedito estates and the São José farm. In recent years, the Sertão Group has also been successfully engaging in the breeding and sale of girolando cattle and the cultivation and sale of corn and soybeans. THE GROUP'S BUSINESS ACTIVITIES The Sertão Group is a family firm with more than 100 years of tradition in the production and commercialization of high-quality coffee. The Sertão Estate, located in Carmo de Minas, South Minas Gerais, was inherited by José Isidro Pereira and Nazareth Dias Pereira and is now managed by their sons and in-laws. The region is well-known for its mineral water springs, perfect combination of latitude and altitude, mountainous terrain, well-defined seasons and fertile soil. The passion for work and coffee-growing and the favorable conditions found in South Minas have resulted in an expansion of group's activities. The group now possesses a large area planted with coffee and a constantly evolving infrastructure that are capable of offering a wide variety of high quality arabica coffee to the domestic and international markets. In recent years, the Sertão Group has also been successfully engaging in the breeding and sale of girolando cattle and the cultivation and sale of corn and soybeans. Sertão has highly qualified technical assistance in each of its areas of activity, in order to improve continually the products it supplies and thus satisfy its customers. MISSION To produce and commercialize high-quality coffee with specified grades suitable for the export market; To become a national reference in the breeding of girolando cattle; To produce and sell corn and soybeans with high quality standards; Profitability, improvement in the quality of life of its collaborators, respect for legislation and the environment and a social contribution to a more just and egalitarian society. VISION To become a world reference in the agribusiness market in the next 5 years and significantly increase high-quality arabica exports with value added. VALUES Family Ethics Transparency Credibility Professionalism Humility Determination REGION Renowned for its mineral water springs, the region of the Mantiqueira mountain range, where the Sertão Group is located, possesses a perfect combination of climate and land factors, with highly fertile soil that enable the production of fine coffee with typical characteristics, such as a full body and medium-to-high acidity, with a predominantly citric acidity. The region's economy is based on agriculture and coffee is responsible for providing more than half the income and jobs. Location: Carmo de Minas, Mantiqueira mountain range, South Minas.

Coffee growing in Carmo de Minas has been the business of the Pereira family since 1979. When the family started managing the 215 ha. farmland at Fazenda Santa Ines, it was already planted in coffee, but they opted on planting new varieties and updating the work model in order to improve quality and productivity. At the time the family took over management at Santa Ines, the Carmo de Minas region was experiencing problems with quality. The family hired experts to help improve quality, theyintroduced new harvesting/processing techniques, and they also implementedthe newest farm technology available. Immediately the coffees from Santa Ines began to stand out in regional and nationalcontests, establishing a reputation of quality amongst the specialty coffee market. In 2005, a sample from Fazenda Santa Ines won first place in Cup of Excellence Brazil, with a world record 95.85 score. "In Carmo, soil and climatic conditions are favorable to the coffee. It is what French people call 'terroir', and our region is doing its homework; we are on the right way. Now we can only expect better times." — The Periera Family *Project CriaCarmo: As part of our partnership with Carmo Coffee, we are involved with a project called CriaCarmo, a program funding Swimming classes and Karate classes for youth in the Carmo de Minas area.

Serra Negra is a Brazilian profile that we have developed with our export partners in Brazil. The name Serra Negra is a mark we created about 20 years ago, and it has been a staple of our coffee offerings ever since. This coffee typically scores between 82–84 points on the cupping table, with notes of milk chocolate, mild citrus, and clean nuts. This coffee is milled at a state-of-the-art processing facility in Pocos de Caldas, which results in much better green prep than most standard Brazilian coffee. This coffee is usually a blend from South Minas, and at times also includes coffee from Cerrado and Matas de Minas. This is a great workhorse Brazilian coffee, and the reasonable price makes it a staple for many customers' blends.

The coffee production is on 81 hectares of the land, but the farm didn't produce specialty coffees until 2010, when Guilherme de Siqueira, one of the brothers' sons. undertook some construction projects to improve quality, including new drying structures.

Sweet with tart winey acidity and a smooth mouthfeel; chocolate, vanilla and almond flavors. Fazenda Santa Lucia producer Hélcio Carneiro Pinto has been working in coffee since he was 15 years old, helping his mother produce and process crops. In 1976, Hélcio married Glycia Pereira Carneiro and began to manage Santa Lucia. In the 1990's, Hélcio was one of the founders of Aprocam, a group of pioneers that began a movement for the pursuit of quality coffee in the region of Carmo de Minas. Aprocam introduced the idea of processing pulped naturals on Carmo de Minas and Hélcio was the first producer to get the machines for this process. Since that development at Santa Lucia, Hélcio has worked with universities and scientists, and he has taken trips to other coffee producing countries to further his knowledge on the production of specialty coffee. Today, Hélcio and Fazenda Santa Lucia maintain a worldwide reputation for quality Brazilian coffees. Fazenda Santa Lucia is 740 hectares with 100 hectares of coffee: Yellow Bourbon, Yellow Catuai, and Acaia. This is a model farm of the Carmo de Minas region and is innovating in both quality and production methods with hopes of producing 4500 bags in the future.

Fazenda IP was first purchased in 1967, by Isidro Pereira, father of Luiz Paolo Dias Pereira. (Fazenda IP takes its name from Isidro's initials.) Luiz was pursuing an education in agriculture at the time the farm came into the family, but after five years, he joined his father to expand production and improve quality. By 1974, Luiz began expanding Fazenda IP: It now covers an area of 720 hectares—500 percent growth over the farm's original size. This estate cultivates Yellow Catuai, Yellow Catucai, Acaia, and Yellow Bourbon. The coffee is processed using both the natural and honey method. Nestled outside the city of Carmo de Minas, the farm sits at a range of 950–1200 meters. The higher altitude favors a slow ripening of cherry and permits selective picking, which are decisive factors to produce coffees of exceptional quality.

Mariana de Carvalho Junqueira inherited this farm in 1954, and it has been a part of her family since 1896. While there were coffee plants on the property at the time that Mariana took ownership of the land, the "coffee culture" here didn't begin until the late 1970s, when special attention was paid to the crop and harvest for the first time. The first harvest was of 20,000 Yellow Catuai trees, which covered 8 hectares. Today, the coffee area spans 35 hectares andhas several varieties planted. Since the focus has shifted to coffee on the farm, picking, processing, and drying have improved tremendously.

Sweet and salty with tart acidity and a smooth mouthfeel; chocolate, almond and winey fruit flavors. Sitio Capim Seco is owned and operated by Rafael Dias Pereira, who comes from a long line of coffee producers: His grandparents Isidro and Nazareth Pereira were among the first coffee producers in the region, and Rafael's mother and aunt own the nearby Fazenda Irmãs Pereira. Rafael has three passions: family, horses, and specialty coffee. His passion for horses is partially how he got interested in managing farms: Before he was a coffee producer, he actually established a horse farm, where he breeds Brazilian Mangalarga Marchadors, a horse-racing favorite. When his equestrian endeavor became successful, he decided to invest some of the profits to the passion he shares with his family—coffee. He bought a small plot of land near his family's coffee lands, and since his first harves in 2007, he has earned high cup scores for his lots. "Coffee is what makes my family stay tightly bonded, up since the past until nowadays," Rafael says. If we want to honor its influence on our lives and history, we must have in mind to keep the hard work we're used to employ in our tasks in order to produce, consisistenly, the finest coffees possible." Because Sitio Capim Seco is relatively small (35 hectares of coffee—large for the rest of the world but small by Brazilian standards), Rafael uses the equipment and facilities at Fazenda Irmãs Pereira to process his coffee. There, he dries his cherry on raised beds or patios, and he produces both Naturals and Pulped Naturals. He has even tried some experimental processes like Black Honey.

Balanced and soft with citric acidity and a creamy mouthfeel; chocoalte, toffee and almond flavors. Sitio Rancho Dantas has been in the de Paula family for more than 70 years, and is currently owned and operated by Paulo Mauro de Paula. When it was first purchased by Sebastião de Paula, he struggled to pay for the land, promising that as soon as he paid his debts he would erect a cross at the farm's highest point, which he has done. In the 1960s, coffee was planted on the farm, but the focus on specialty started in 2013. Paulo Mauro de Paula is more and more interested in producing specialty lots (including Washed selections) on the 10 hectares he has planted in coffee, and so is committed to hand-picking and carefully sorting all of the coffee every year. They also use floaters and utilize the depulping machines to sort out any imperfect coffee. After picking, sorting, and depulping, the cofffee is fermented dry for 24 hours, then washed clean of mucilage and dried slowly to preserve quality. Every step of the process is a family affair, done by Paulo, his wife, and their son. The small, coastal state of Espríto Santo is located in the southeast of the Brazil, and contains microclimates unlike virtually anwhere else in the country: Brazil's traditional natural process is practically impossible here, as well, due to the heavy mists and fog that roll across the coffee farms in the mountains.

View Beanology origin Valdeir Mauro de Paula is the owner of this farm called Corrego Rancho Dantas, which is the name of the region as well and a moniker shared by many properties. Like many coffee producers in the area and in general, Valdeir inherited his coffee knowledge from his father, but he is changing the tradition by passing down his farm and his knowledge to his daughter, Caroline. She is his partner on the farm in every way, and despite having the opportunity to study physics, she has decided to commit herself to the family business. "In order to keep my father's legacy, I am learning more about cupping and other processing methods, such as cleaning and sorting beans," she said. Those new processing techniques have paid off, and Corrego Rancho Dantas won the first-place award at a Bourbon Specialty Coffee Quality Contest: The winning lot was inspired by the production methods Valdeir witnessed on a trip to Guatemala. The father-daughter team has also been careful with the coffees that they have planted, focusing on Catuai and Yellow Catuai, as well as a Catucai 785 selection. The farm is 19.8 hecatres, with 10 of those planted with coffee. For more information about coffee production in Brazil, visit our Brazil Origin Page. nft,norg,Microlot,Microlot 5

Fazenda Sertão is an 850-hectare farm with 330 hectares planted in coffee of several varieties, including Red and Yellow Bourbon, Yellow Catucai, and Yellow Catuai. The farm also grows bananas and corn, and is used to raise dairy livestock. This farm has a love story behind it: Among the first generation of coffee growers in this area was Jose Isidro Pereira, a dentist-turned–coffee producer who inherited Fazenda Sertão from his mother when she passed away—an incident that ended his dentistry career but put him on a path to coffee farming. In 1949, Jose Isidro met the "love of his life," Nazareth, who continues to run the farm her husband left in her care. Nazareth and Jose Isidro's children—Francisco, Luiz Paulo, Clycia, and Sandra—are also coffee producers, carrying on the family tradition. Apparently lovedoes win—at least in this case. This farm with the love story submitted a sample to the first-ever Carmo Best Cup competition and won 14th place with this microlot.

The land was inherited by his father in 1994, but back then it was only a pasture, but the family planted coffee and transformed it into the farm it is today. In 2010, Paulo became interested in producing specialty coffees, discovering that the farm contained all of the elements necessary for very high-quality coffee: Altitude, good soil, stron varieties, and proper amount of rain. He invested in equipment to aid in processing, including dryers and terreiros for drying, and he continues to make strides to improve his coffee every year.

Soft and clean with citric acidity and a heavy mouthfeel; toffee, chocolate, pecan and lemon flavors. Before he turned to coffee production, Marcus Vinicius Souza de Carvalho was a professional soccer player in the 1980s and '90s, playing with football clubs like Vasco de Gama. His wife, Maria Jose Barros Junqueira, was from a coffee-farming family, and when her father passed away, Marcus retired his cleats and began coffee farming. He studied everything he could related to coffee, consulting with agronomists and following the development of specialty coffee in Brazil very closely. He was shocked that Brazil's many coffees were still given somewhat generic classifications, and sought to change the general perception by focusing on quality and differentiation. When his wife died tragically in a car accident in 2013, Marcus considered selling the farm, overcome with grief. He decided instead to put even more focus into the farm, as a tribute to his wife and her influence on his entrance into coffee farming. He is a hands-on manager at Sitio Chapada, and he also coaches football for the underprivileged youth of Carmo de Minas who participate in a program spearheaded by Carmo Coffees, called CriaCarmo. Sitio Chapada is a 60-hectare farm with 50 hectares planted in coffee—very small compared to the 100–1,000-hectare farms commonly found in Brazil. Marcus grows Yellow Catuai, Red and Yellow Icatu, Mundo Novo, and Acaia on his farm, as well as bananas. For more information about coffee production in Brazil, visit our Brazil Origin Page.

Paulo César Junquiera (better known as "Lilica" to his friends and associates) owns the 40-hectare farm Sitio Pinheirinho that was originally his grandfather's, then his father's before him. Lilica did not have a great relationship with his father when he was young, and did not have as much of an opportunity to learn about coffee farming from him before he died 20 years ago. "I could have had a great farming teacher," Lilica said, "but unfortunately he was not very interested in teaching me and neither was I interested in enjoying time with him." Instead, Lilica saw his father's death as a personal challenge to become the man and the farmer that his father could not be: He stepped up and took charge of Sitio Pinheirinho with the support of his wife and sons, focusing on quality instead of volume and cultivating specialty coffees.

Alta Mogiana is the name given to a selection of highest-quality coffees from a group of around 100 smallholder producers in the Mogiana coffee-growing region of Brazil. The region itself takes its name from the railway system, Railways Mogiana Company, which was built in 1872 in order to transport the huge volumes of coffee that were being grown in the area. The harvest on these coffees is primarily done mechanically, with a quality sort after harvest and before drying. Our partners have a receiving office in Franca city in order to receive coffees from these smallholder producers.

One of Brazil's coffee many diverse regions, Paraná has historically been a strong producer of coffee (and was the first place the crop was cultivated), but during the late 20th century, annual hard frosts kept the production low. Today, Paraná has not had extreme frosts for several years, and has been experiencing an increase in both production and overall quality. This lot is from Fazenda Califórnia, a well-established farm with a rich history in coffee. The farmland itself was established in the beginning of the 19th century by the American company Leon & Isreal. In 1963 the movie Instant Love was filmed here, and Nelson Rockefeller visited in 1947. Today, Fazenda California is owned by the Saldanha Rodrigues family, and has been since 2004. After acquiring the farm, the Saldanha Rodrigues family implemented a new cycle of management focusing on sustainability for specialty-coffee production. The farm spans a total of 1,467 hectares, of which 250 are planted in coffee. Coffee is harvested mechanically followed by a light sorting process in which the ripest cherries are set aside for specialty lots such as this one. Specialty coffee is pre-dried on a patio for four days, then moved to mechanical dryers where 12-hour drying cycles are performed—meaning the coffee was dried for 12 hours, then rested for 12 hours and repeated until it reached a moisture content of 10.5%.

This coffee typically scores between 82–84 points on the cupping table, with notes of milk chocolate, mild citrus, and clean nuts. This coffee is milled at a state-of-the-art processing facility in Pocos de Caldas, which results in much better green prep than most standard Brazilian coffee.

Fazenda Sertão is an 850-hectare farm with 330 hectares planted in coffee of several varieties, including Red and Yellow Bourbon, Yellow Catucai, and Yellow Catuai. The farm also grows bananas and corn, and is used to raise dairy livestock. This farm has a love story behind it: Among the first generation of coffee growers in this area was Jose Isidro Pereira, a dentist-turned–coffee producer who inherited Fazenda Sertão from his mother when she passed away—an incident that ended his dentistry career but put him on a path to coffee farming. In 1949, Jose Isidro met the "love of his life," Nazareth, who continues to run the farm her husband left in her care. Nazareth and Jose Isidro's children—Francisco, Luiz Paulo, Clycia, and Sandra—are also coffee producers, carrying on the family tradition.

Coffee in Burundi is a logistical challenge from start to finish, even for the best of us. It is a particularly poor country, with one of the lowest GDP in Africa, and recent years have brought renewed political struggles and unrest that hark back to very troubled times in the late 1990s and early 2000s. The country’s landlocked position on the continent is also tricky to navigate: Rather than being sold FOB (Free on Board), as most coffees are once they arrive at port and are loaded onto a container, coffees from Rwanda, Burundi, and Democratic Republic of Congo are traded FOT, or Free on Truck—a much riskier arrangement as it requires an incredibly long haul from the processing mill to a port that’s as many as three countries and up to a week’s travel time removed. Despite the surface similarities that Burundi and Rwanda share on paper with regards to varieties, processing, farmer profile, and history (the two nations are often lumped together on offerings sheets and in the “story” of African coffees), they are practically night and day in the cup: The sparkling acidity of Burundi and the incredible complexity and diversity that’s possible here is absolutely a product of the terroir, and the taste of the place is as beautiful and varied as the place itself.

The Juan Café Association comprises 35 coffee-producing families in the villages of San Bernardo and San Juán de la China, in Tolima. The producers each farm on an average of 7 hectares, with about 5 hectares of their land planted in coffee: The total coffee land for the membership of the association is therefore around 250 hectares. The producers grow a mix of varieties, many of which are cultivars developed for productivity and disease-resistance, which allows them to focus on using organic practices such as nonchemical fertilizer and pest management on their land. In most cases, the association members are multi-generational coffee growers, and are dedicated to maintaining the traditions of their families. The cofee is picked ripe, depulped on traditional machines, and fermented underwater for 18 hours before being washed and dried on raised beds for 10–12 days.

Take advantage of a great program dedicated to bringing the highest quality, naturally processed decaf to market! Origin Select Decafs are sourced green by Café Imports prior to decaffeination, breaking from the industry norm. By doing this, we are able to provide the highest quality water and E.A. (Ethyl Acetate, a natural solvent derived from fermented sugar or molasses products) processed products available. This particular lot is chosen from among lots brought by 20 growers in the department of Nariño. The coffees are dry and "double" fermented: After picking and depulping, they are fermented in the hopper for 18–20 hours, then they are put into fermentation tanks for another 12 hours. The coffee is then washed 3–4 times and laid to dry: Some producers sun-dry their coffee on patios, others use parabolic dryers or raised beds. Drying takes about 8–15 days, after which the coffee is stored for 15 days. It is then processed for decaffeination.

For many years, Colombia was the number-one world producer of washed coffees, and the second-largest producer to Brazil. In 2000, Colombia was surpassed by Vietnam, and then the rust infestation of 2008 set them back significantly. Today they are currently in the top five of coffee production with roughly 10 million bags per year. Colombianfarmers and citizens alike drink a lot of coffee every day; nearly 20% of their annual production. Colombia has over 600,000 farms, most of them farmed by small landholders with less than 5 acres nestled in the hills at roughly 1,200 to 2,000 meters above sea level. Colombian Coffees are commonly known to be big, rich, chocolaty coffees with exceptional fragrance and often great acidity.Colombia has many diverse growing regions, so the coffee varies mildly from region to region. Tropical fruit, vanilla, caramel, and chocolate are common adjectives. More intense acidity and bigger velvety body are variations you might find going from south to north as well.

Origin Select Decafs are sourced green by Café Imports prior to decaffeination, breaking from the industry norm. By doing this, we are able to provide the highest quality water and E.A. (sugar cane) processed products available. Offerings with the "Farm Select Decaf" name go one step further: We have carefully chosen microlots to be decaffeinated, in order to offer an even higher-end line of traceable options. For many years, Colombia was the number-one world producer of washed coffees, and the second-largest producer to Brazil. In 2000, Colombia was surpassed by Vietnam, and then the rust infestation of 2008 set them back significantly. Today they are currently in the top five of coffee production with roughly 10 million bags per year. Colombianfarmers and citizens alike drink a lot of coffee every day; nearly 20% of their annual production. Colombia has over 600,000 farms, most of them farmed by small landholders with less than 5 acres nestled in the hills at roughly 1,200 to 2,000 meters above sea level. Colombian Coffees are commonly known to be big, rich, chocolaty coffees with exceptional fragrance and often great acidity.Colombia has many diverse growing regions, so the coffee varies mildly from region to region. Tropical fruit, vanilla, caramel, and chocolate are common adjectives. More intense acidity and bigger velvety body are variations you might find going from south to north as well.

In an effort to be a better partner to our coffee-farming friends in the South of Colombia by buying more of their fine coffee and paying a premium better than they can find in the local market, we are strengthening our relationships while simultaneously introducing a product to Specialty Coffee roasters that is solid, flexibleand relatively inexpensive. This is a win-win for producers and roasters. Our goal is always to find more good homes for more of the crop from our partners. The average coffee farmer in Cauca and Huila has about 1.5 hectares of coffee land and will produce about 50 bags of coffee per harvest. During the few months of harvest season,he or she will bring to town on a Saturday 10 or so bags of Pergamino to sell. We pay a premium based on cup scores; higher score equals higher premium. 90 points is over $4.00. Above 88 pointsmeans a micro-lot premium and 86 pointsequals our Regional Select premium. Before Gran Galope, the other coffees, anything below 86 (that's where most of the coffee lies),recieved the FNC price or the posted street price. In today's market of about $1.20, this standard price is simply an unfortunate break-even price for an entire year's-worth of what we all know is hard, committed, and disciplined work. So today we are pulling out the top lots from those still-solid but lesser cupping coffees (think 84-85 points), paying a premium to the farmer and bulking them together to make full containers of delicious, rich chocolatey Colombian coffee.

View Beanology origin In an effort to be a better partner to our coffee-farming friends in the South of Colombia by buying more of their fine coffee and paying a premium better than they can find in the local market, we are strengthening our relationships while simultaneously introducing a product to Specialty Coffee roasters that is solid, flexible and relatively inexpensive. This is a win-win for producers and roasters. Our goal is always to find more good homes for more of the crop from our partners. The average coffee farmer in Cauca, Huila, and Nariño has about 1.5 hectares of coffee land and will produce about 50 bags of coffee per harvest. During the few months of harvest season, he or she will bring to town on a Saturday 10 or so bags of pergamino, or parchment coffee, to sell. We pay a premium based on cup scores. Higher score equals higher premium: 90 points is over $4.00. Above 88 points means a microlot premium, and 86 points equals our Regional Select premium.

Add to Samples List
ci-usa-minnesota This Colombian offering comes from contributions of multiple smallholder farmers that reside in the areas surrounding the town of San Agustín, Huila. In this specific region of Colombia, the average farm size is about 2.5 hectares. This equates to about 12,000 trees per farmer; and, if all goes well with harvest and processing, an average of 0.7 kilograms of exportable green coffee per tree, per year. After accounting for defects and all lower-quality beans, the average farmer in San Agustín is producing about 15–25 bags of exportable coffee per hectare, per year. As for which bags pass the quality control inspections and are accepted into microlot offerings—this number is rather small. This offering is just that: the top tier of quality from multiple smallholding producers. It has been cupped, vetted, and blended together to produce a regional offering that allows more farmers to receive more payment for better-quality coffee.

He is a member of Asociación Los Naranjos, helping to spearhead a project we have developed over the years where we pay a premium for coffees that meet certain cup-quality specifications. In 2011, he won the first prize at the Cup of Excellence with coffee from this farm, Finca El Faldón. An unprecedented price of $45/lb was paid for the Cup of Excellence coffee, and with it, he promised his family he would take them to see the ocean. (He showed us the pictures to prove it). Arnulfo is very proud to be a farmer. What he and his generation of cafeteros wants is recognition for their hard work and the means to sell their coffee as a traceable microlot, not to be lost in and among a blend.We met Diego, his son, at the Los Naranjos cupping lab, where he was training to be a cupper, and he plans to stay in the family business. That clearly indicates the impact and importance of the growing trend of farmers tasting their own coffee. We see an incredibly bright future for Arnulfo, his family, and for Asociació Los Naranjos in the future.

The coffee is depulped the afternoon that it is picked, then fermented dry for 20 hours before being washed four times. Willian uses parabolic dryers, and it takes 8–10 days to dry the coffee, depending on the weather. Willian is a young grower who has been farming coffee since 2011; his parents have grown fique plants for years, but Willian decided to focus on coffee, and planted 5,000 trees with the help of some credit. When the first harvests went well, Willian and his wife planted another 1,500 trees, and they are seeing a better income from coffee than fique plants.

El Cerrito is a 12-hectare farm with 4 hectares planted in coffee (and 2 hectares set aside as a forest reserve), focusing on Castillo and Colombia varieties. Farm owner Jose Duban Carvajal Muñoz was born to coffee-producing parents, but was initially reluctant to go into the family business. Around 2006, he decided to apply for a bank loan to buy the farm, which had been abandoned, and he also studied coffee production with SENA, a Colombian national education program that provides classes and technical instruction to coffee farmers (among other trades). He has applied what he learned through SENA and through experience to encourage his pickers to only harvest the ripest cherries, and he continues to try to improve his processing. Coffees on El Cerrito are picked ripe and depulped using a traditional three-outlet depulping machine the same day they are picked. The beans are fermented dry for about 15 hours, washed three times, and then dried either in parabolic dryers (1 day) or in mechanical dryers (10 hours).

In 2013, Café Imports initiated a project intended to highlight the unique cup profiles inherent to coffees from various microregions within the coffee-producing areas of Colombia. Recognizing the impact of microclimate including sun and rain, soil health, and altitude; as well as varieties grown; processing techniques; and different growing practices, it became apparent that simply calling a coffee “Colombian” doesn't even scratch the surface. Joining forces with our Colombian export partner Banexport, Café Imports planted the seed that would blossom into a multinational Regional Select program. During the harvest season, growers from within certain communities—for instance, Cauca, Tolima, Huila, and Nariño in Colombia—have their coffees cupped and scored for potential inclusion in a “Regional Select” lot, a coffee that scores between 86–88 points and displays characteristics indicative of its growing region. Coffees that score above 88 points are selected out as microlots; coffees hitting 90 and above become candidates for our ACES program. Comprising multiple coffees from smallholder farmers within the coffee-growing communities, Regional Select coffees offer producers a quality premium that encourages investment and development into future years' yields, while also bringing to market some of the best and most articulate tastes of place the world has to offer. Regional Select program coffees are available from Colombia, Guatemala, and Peru as of 2016, with plans to expand the program throughout the coffee-producing world.

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. Coffees that score above 87 points are selected out as microlots; coffees hitting 90 and above become candidates for our ACES program.

ci-usa-minnesota Mild and smooth with toffee, cocoa, grapefruit and dark chocolate flavors. Mild and smooth with toffee, cocoa, grapefruit and dark chocolate flavors. As always, we believe our Regional Select program allows for the unique flavors and complexities of specific coffee-producing areas to be individually highlighted. This terroir-focused approach celebrates producers in each region; their varieties, their histories and farming practices, while at the same time rewarding them for their efforts through a program that pays higher prices for quality coffees. While each of Colombia's various coffee-growing regions has a distinct character in the cup, Nariño's unique climate conditions contribute to the special, sparkling quality of the coffees there. The dramatic slopes and valleys that comprise the landscape in this department have direct effect on the temperature modulation that creates these high-acidity, supersweet coffees: Warm, humid air collects in the lowlands during the day and creeps gently up the mountainsides at night, a combination that allows coffee to thrive at much higher altitudes than most of the rest of the country, as much as 2,300 meters above sea level.

Toffee, chocolate, lemon, lime and floral flavors; sweet, clean and citric with a creamy mouthfeel. The 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 pre-shipment cupping score. During the harvest season, growers from within certain communities—for instance, Cauca, Tolima, Huila, and Nariño in Colombia—have their coffees cupped and scored for potential inclusion in a “Regional Select” lot, a coffee that scores between 84–86 points and displays characteristics indicative of its growing region. (Inzá is a microregion within Cauca.) 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. Coffees that score above 87 points are selected out as microlots; coffees hitting 90 and above become candidates for our ACES program. Comprising multiple coffees from smallholder farmers within the coffee-growing communities, Regional Select coffees offer producers a quality premium that encourages investment and development into future years' yields, while also bringing to market some of the best and most articulate tastes of place the world has to offer. In short, the separations look like this: Signature Coffee (Gran Galope): 80–84 pts Regional Select: 84–86 pts Microlot Program: 87–89 pts Aces: 90+ pts This program adds yet another tier to our stratified-buying structure in Colombia, designed to further reward quality.

Very floral with strong rose, bergamot, ginger, panela and orange flavors; soft and sweet with tart fruit acidity and a smooth mouthfeel. Pedro Maria Zuñiga owns the 10-hectare farm El Progreso, where he grows 6 hectares of cofffee, including Gesha variety. The farm is primarily run by two of Pedro's nephews, Mauricio and Jorge: Since Pedro has been farming coffee for 40 years he says he does not have the energy to manage the farm all by himself, and keeping the work in the family ensures that the farm will continue even after Pedro needs to retire. He and his brothers began by growing Caturra and Typica on farmland they inherited from their father, and now growing Gesha variety has allowed Pedro to earn higher prices and much higher scores on his lots as well. Coffee is picked ripe when the cherries are deep purple, and Pedro does a "double fermentation," meaning he first puts the intact cherries into the depulping hopper and lets them sit for 18 hours before depulping and demucilaging, then he ferments them in tanks for 22 hours. The coffee is then washed once and dried in parabolic dryers for 12–18 days.

Anyelo Sosa Gonzalez owns the 4-hectare farm Alto Cielo near the village of El Cogoyo. The entire farm is planted with coffee, including Gesha variety. He has been growing coffee for over 15 years, when he inherited a farm and 500 Caturra trees from his father. While Caturra is a popular variety, Anyelo lost many of his plants to coffee-leaf rust and has been experimenting with other varieties that are more tolerant and resistant, including Gesha. Coffee is picked when the cherries are ripe and have turned a deep purple color. They are then depulped using a traditional four-outlet depulper and fermented dry for 24 hours before being washed 2–3 times and laid in parabolic dryers for 10–12 days.

Edgar has been a coffee producer for more than 40 years, and his family helps to bring in the harvests each year. Edgar has recently increased his fermentation time under the direction of Banexport, our exporting partners in Colombia, finding that the changes have boosted both the cupping score and flavor profile. At Finca Buena Vista, only ripe cherries are harvested when they are dark orange, and processing begins the same day as picking. After depulping, the coffee is dry fermented for an unusually long time: 42 hours. It is then washed three to four times before beng moved to moved to the casa elba(a type of full-sun drying bed with a retractable roof) for a period of 10–15 days. Once the coffee is fully dried and stable, it is then sacked and stacked on wooden pallets to rest for a period of 15 days before being milled.

Sweet with tart citric acidity and a smooth mouthfeel; chocolate, toffee and lemon flavors with some cherry and a peanut aftertaste. AMACA (Asociación de Mujeres Productoras Agropecuarias del Cauca) is a group of women producers located in El Tambo, Cauca, Colombia that was formed in 1999 by 80 women from El Tambo, in Colombia’s Cauca department. Now AMACA is 140 smallholder members strong, all women farm owners and heads of household—and their coffees are fantastic. All of the members derive their livelihood and the livelihoods of their families from the cultivation and production of coffee. In 2008, AMACA partnered with the Ministry of Agriculture, the governor of Cauca, and the municipality of El Tambo to increase the production and quality of coffee on 80 members’ farms. In 2010, the organization “Social Action” supplied 22 farms with new wet mills and processing tanks. Today, 140 active members from three different villages across the El Tambo municipality make up AMACA. The average farm size is 1 hectare (5,000 trees) per member, some members have 3+ hectares and many members have less than one. In terms of harvesting and process, most all members harvest only fully ripe cherries, depulping on the same day as harvest, processing on their own farms, and drying on raised beds inside parabolic dryers. As this is one of our Program Coffees, a premium is paid to AMACA above the value of the coffee itself to support their goals and aspirations as a group. Their mantra is simple: to improve the quality of life for their members and their members’ families. Currently, one of their most pressing needs is a warehouse space to properly receive, cup, manage, and store their coffees. We believe these premiums can help them to accomplish these goals and in turn, support this passionate and strong-willed group of women in their love for and livelihood of quality coffee.

The women's mission as an association is to improve their families' quality of life through coffee farming, and to contribute positively to their community by working together and sharing resources, knowledge, and support. "Our work is determined by our values such as responsibility, honesty, commitment, respect, solidarity, and competitiveness," they say. The coffee, all of which is of Castillo or Colombia variety, is picked as purple (Castillo) or bright red (Colombia) cherry, and undergoes a somewhat unusual "double" fermentation process, as the women describe it: First, the cherries are left in the loading hoppers for 14 hours, then they are depulped in the afternoons and evening hours and placed into traditional open fermentation tanks for another 10 hours. Then they are washed three to four times before being dried either in parabolic dryers or in the sun for 8–12 days.

From Sopacdi: We are over 5600 farmers from different ethnic groups in the Kivu Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, producing some of the finest coffee in Africa. After years of conflict and civil war, our Fairtrade-certified coffee promotes working together for a better future. We live in a beautiful but very difficult place. Our small communities are remote, scattered amongst the highlands of the mountains surrounding Lake Kivu in the Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo. Our coffee grows at an altitude of 1460m to over 2000 metres above sea level. We have lived through civil war and in great poverty for many years, but since forming our cooperative Sopacdi, despite our challenges, we also feel full of hope.For thefirst time we have good buyers for our coffee, who buy from us directly. Our homes are basic, without electricity, running water and other amenities. But our families are back together and we are re-building our communities. Our headquarters are in the town of Minova, and we have just finished building the first coffee washing station the region for over 40 years. The first coffee in the DR Congo to achieve top national grade – Kivu 2 – since 1967 Specialty fully-washed Arabica coffee Organic certification FLO certification number 26275 Main harvest from March to June; fly crop from September to October Shipments from June to December Altitude 1460to over 2000 meters above sea level Fair Trade,Organic,FTO 1

SOPACDI (Solidarité Paysanne pour la Promotion des Actions Café et Development Intégral) is an organization comprised of more than 5,600 farmers, roughly 20 percent of whom are women, located near Lake Kivu in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Each farmer has a very small area of farmland for coffee, and tenders cherries to SOPACDI through the organization's 10 subgroups. Joachim Munganga, who was a farmer himself, founded SOPACDI in 2002 by restoring a washing station in the area, which provided service and market access to the growers in these extremely remote highlands. The cooperative was the first to achieve Fair Trade certification in Congo, and the coffee also carries organic certification.

The Community Coffee program with CoopeTarrazu has made a real impact on the communities that deliver their 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, which the individual communities receive and decide as a group how the money will be used to improve their coffee production and livelihood. We have seen the premiums used to build roads, large water tanks to store fresh water for the community, roofs for schools, and many other projects. While some of the best individual producers in Costa Rica have built their own micromills to segregate their coffee and capture the higher market for microlots, many smallholder producers of high caliber do not have their own facilities, and still deliver cherry to cooperatives. This is where CoopeTarrazu comes in. Microlots in cooperatives can be controversial, but CoopeTarrazu has made a commitment to improve the lives of its 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 high-altitude communities at the peak of the harvest, 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.

This lot is from a producer named Jhonnathan Camacho, who is descendant from one of the first coffee growers in the West Valley, his grandfather Rafael Camacho Vega. This lot is a selection of Caturra variety and Villa Sarchi, which is a dwarf Bourbon variety that was first discovered near the Costa Rican town of Sarchi. It is a Back Honey process lot. Oscar Mendez and his wife, Olga, have been producing coffee for many years; in fact, Genesis was one of the first micromills—not just in the West Valley, but in Costa Rica. Don Oscar and Doña Olga are leaders in their community. "Everybody knows them," says Café Imports' green-coffee buyer Luis Arocha. "They share a lot of experience and knowledge with other producers. They want to empower all the neighbors. They are truly fantastic people." Oscar and Olga buy cherryfrom farmers in the area, and mill and process the coffees at Genesis, while keeping the lots separate and identified. Producers can either simply pay for the milling services, or they can sell their cherry to the Mendezes, but the farm name is still always attached to the coffee to give it specific recognition. Oscar uses patio space for drying washed coffees, and raised beds for honey and natural processes.

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. Café Imports is excited to bring you, once again, high-quality and traceable microlots from Costa Rica. — Piero Cristiani nft,norg,Microlot,Microlot 1

Diego Abarca, owner and operator of Alto San Juan Micromill, is one of the youngest producers we work with: He's been involved in coffee for all of his 22 years, and after finishing school he decided to stay to help his parents on their coffee farm instead of going off to college. Four years ago, his father gave Diego one of the family farms, and he has been running it by himself, from the agriculture to the sales of the coffee. The first year that Café Imports bought coffee from Diego, it was a small lot, just 10 bags; this year his production and quality have both been high enough to allow us to buy several different lots from him. This lot comprises a selection of Catuai variety coffee from one of Diego's farms. Diego focuses primarily on washed coffees because he prefers the profile, and as a medium-size producer, it is easier for him to control quality by streamlining his processes, rather than have several different styles of processing and drying at the mill. nft,norg,Microlot,Microlot 16

The Aguileras are a family of 12 brothers and sisters who are second-generation coffee producers in the West Valley. (Hermanos is used to describe mixed male and female siblings in Spanish, but literally translates to "brothers" in English.) Their father was one of the first coffee growers in the area, and planted his farm 70 years ago: Neighboring farmers warned him that coffee wouldn't grow there, but now the area is rich with coffee lands. His children, the Aguilera Brothers, work together to produce coffee: Most of the siblings own farmland, and they co-manage the micromill they installed eight years ago, which they built with the earnings from their fourth-place Cup of Excellence win in 2007. At first their father was skeptical about the mill, but he has been pleased by the results: Before they had the mill, the family was selling its coffee to a local co-operative and did not have any connection with the roasters who bought the lots. "No one every visited before," says brother Erasmo, the general manager of the micromill. "Now we get feedback, and we hear who likes the coffee and how we can make it better." They have a nursery in which they are growing many different varieties, including Gesha and SL-28, as well as Bourbon and Villa Sarchi. They aim to grow "a balance of good-quality and rust-resistant varieties." This lot is a selection of Villa Sarchi, a variety discovered in the town of Sarchi, and is a Bourbon mutation with a 40% higher fruit system, and shorter internodal distance than Bourbon, somewhat similar to Caturra.

london-eu Heavy with chocolate, burnt sugar, molasses and tomato jam. Heavy with chocolate, burnt sugar, molasses and tomato jam. The Aguileras are a family of 12 brothers and sisters who are second-generation coffee producers in the West Valley. (Hermanos is used to describe mixed male and female siblings in Spanish, but literally translates to "brothers" in English.) Their father was one of the first coffee growers in the area, and planted his farm 70 years ago: Neighboring farmers warned him that coffee wouldn't grow there, but now the area is rich with coffee lands. His children, the Aguilera Brothers, work together to produce coffee: Most of the siblings own farmland, and they co-manage the micromill they installed eight years ago, which they built with the earnings from their fourth-place Cup of Excellence win in 2007. At first their father was skeptical about the mill, but he has been pleased by the results: Before they had the mill, the family was selling its coffee to a local co-operative and did not have any connection with the roasters who bought the lots. "No one every visited before," says brother Erasmo, the general manager of the micromill. "Now we get feedback, and we hear who likes the coffee and how we can make it better." They have a nursery in which they are growing many different varieties, including Gesha and SL-28, as well as Bourbon and Villa Sarchi. They aim to grow "a balance of good-quality and rust-resistant varieties." This lot is a selection of Villa Sarchi, a variety discovered in the town of Sarchi, and is a Bourbon mutation with a 40% higher fruit system, and shorter internodal distance than Bourbon, somewhat similar to Caturra.

ci-usa-minnesota Simple, sweet, clean and citric with toffee, lemon and chocolate. Simple, sweet, clean and citric with toffee, lemon and chocolate. La Candelilla was one of the first micromills in Tarrazu, opening in the year 2000. It's a collaboratively owned micromill: The farmers who use it and deliver their harvests to the mill share ownership. The farmer who grew this lot is named Ricardo Hernandez Naranjo. "As long as we can remember, we have worked in coffee," says Victor Hugo Naranjo of La Candelilla. "And now I have the opportunity to process—it's my passion." Once the cherry is brought to the mill, it is processed depending on the profile and the weather, and dried on patios or raised beds for 7–12 days. Most of the farmers who work with La Candelilla grow mainly Caturra and Catuai, but there are also Gesha and SL-28 selections, making up more than 70 total hectares of coffee farmland. The coffee is both wet- and dry-milled on-site. For more information about coffee production in Costa Rica, visit our Costa Rica Origin Page. nft,norg,Microlot,Microlot 9

london-eu Caramel, nutty, toffee and lemon. Caramel, nutty, toffee and lemon. This microlot comes to us courtesy of producer Henry Hernandez Padilla. He owns and manages a three hectare farm, Finca El Platanillo, in the Leòn Cortez district of Tarrruzú, Costa Rica. This is a washed lot from the December-February harvest of 2015/2016. 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. Café Imports is excited to bring you, once again, high-quality and traceable microlots from Costa Rica. — Piero Cristiani For more information on Costa Rican coffee, visit our Costa Rica origin page. nft,norg,Spl Cat 600

Sweet with balanced fruit acidity and a creamy mouthfeel; lots of sweet floral flavor with caramel, cola, dark ripe fruit and green grape flavors. Finca Hakuna Matata is owned and operated by Henry Gaibor and his wife, Verena, who also oversee the daily operations of Rancho Tio Emilio, as well as their own mill and farm at Finca Maputo. The couple has a very interesting, somewhat dramatic backstory, also having to do with medicine: They met in Bujumbura, Burundi, in 1996 when they were both volunteering for Doctors Without Borders: Henry is a veteran war-trauma surgeon from Ecuador, and Verena is a war nurse from Switzerland, and they met in the field during a humanitarian crisis in Burundi. In 1998, the two of them returned to Henry's home country of Ecuador, where they managed a clinic in Quito for 13 years before deciding to devote their time, energy, and resources to another passion—coffee. Henry is extremely methodical and just as dedicated to his coffee production as he used to be about his medical profession, and Verena's management skills clearly show her training and efficiency as a nurse under extreme pressure. Together, they are doing everything right when it comes to picking, processing, and drying coffees, and Cafe Imports senior green-coffee buyer Piero Cristiani says the Gaibors are producing "some of the best coffees I have ever tasted." The Gaibors grow several different varieties, which are clearly divided and marked on their properties: They grow Typica, Bourbon, SL-28, Sidra, Kaffa, and Caturra. Henry and Verena produce their coffee in La Perla, Nanegal, which is in the province of Pichincha, relatively close to the border of Colombia. The area where the farms are located has a very specific microclimate: Even though it's relatively low altitude for Ecuador around 1350 meters, humidity is high and a visitor often sees mist covering over the coffee fields in the afternoons. It becomes much cooler at night, as well, and the unique combination of characteristics give their coffees a very special quality.

La Fortaleza is a 4-hectare farm with 3 hectares planted in coffee, primarily Bourbon and Sidra varieties. Among the coffee trees, there are also other plants, such as yuca, beans, corn, and sugar cane. For four months out of the year, the coffee is picked ripe and depulped the same day, fermented dry for at least 15 hours. the coffee is then washed until the mucilage is completely removed, and dried in a combination of raised beds and under canopies. Drying takes about 10 days, give or take based on weather conditions. For more information about coffee production in Ecuador, visit our Ecuador Origin Page. nft,norg,Microlot,Microlot 1

Turning his energy entirely to coffee, he has worked to develop as healthy, hardy, and horticulturally intentional a farm as possible, with a very well-nurtured plant nursery and a "garden of inputs" on the property. (The "inputs garden" is interesting and shows Juan's dedication to science and methodical experimentation: He has coffee trees planted several yards apart and labeled with the fertilizer inputs they're given, to track the impact of the nutrients on growth and cherry development. Juan grows several varieties on this land, and is actively engaged with processing experiments as well.His farming is meticulous, scientific, curious, and giving: He provides neighbors and farm workers space in his nursery, along with seedlings, so that they can develop plots of their own.

london-eu Milk chocolate, lemon, toffee and baking spices. Milk chocolate, lemon, toffee and baking spices. When Isidro Batlle bought this farm in the 1920s, he was so inspired by how high-altitude it is that he named it Finca Las Nubes, for "the clouds." Celebrating almost 100 years of coffee production, Las Nubes is still one of the standard-bearers for quality in the region, placing special emphasis on improvement in processing and experimentation with varieties and other innovations. Farm manager Eduardo Moran Larin not only oversees the mostly Bourbon variety trees here, but also a 15-manzana section that is dedicated to a development project growing Typica, Kenya, and Castillo varieties in order to diversify with more coffee-leaf-rust-resistant plants.A century of attentive farming and passion for coffee has allowed the farm to develop a singularly impressive soil structure, and good husbandry also contributes to the success of the land: Altitude plus proper fertilization plus careful consideration for the density of the plants and the management of the whole ecosystem are part of what make Las Nubes a special environment that produces special coffees. Las Nubes produces Washed, Honey, and Natural coffees, and the focus is on quality from harvesting through processing, all the way to the cup. This is a classic example of the full-Bourbon profile, full of sweetness and warm spice, with just a little bit of acidity to add balance and depth.

Floral, lime and grapefruit flavors with a nutty aftertaste; sweet and tart with a smooth mouthfeel. It would seem logical that the smallest Central American coffee-growing country would produce microlots, but historically, much of the coffee was blended and sold to mills, without much lot differentiation and separation. The rise of specialty coffee in El Salvador has inspired many producers to start to identify and isolate individual varieties, and to experiment with sorting and processing, as a way of attracting buyers and getting higher prices, but access to those resources can still be difficult for smaller growers. For the past few years, Café Imports green buyer Piero Cristiani—who is from El Salvador, and whose mother has a long history in coffee there—has embarked on a project designed to identify, reward, and bring to market the exceptional results of the hard, innovative work that producers are increasingly interested in doing here. Focusing on the region of Chalatenango, Piero has partnered with a cupper and a local mill to buy small, select microlots from producers—some separated by variety, some by process, and some by both. We are buying the coffee in parchment and doing the ruling and final sorting and bagging ourselves, which allows for more quality control as well as the ability to package some of these very special small lots in custom 35-kilo Pequeños bags, to create more widespread access to these coffees to roasters. Finca Los Cascabeles is about an 5-manzana farm planted with Pacas, Pacamara, and Gesha coffee trees, with an annual production of only 20–25 quintales. The coffees are picked ripe and deplulped the same day, fermtend dry for 14–16 hours, and washed before being laid out to dry for 8–10 days. The farm is very remote, and bad weather can wash out access to the roads, which makes bringing the coffee to market very difficult. But hopefully the addition of another manzana of land will increase production for next year. We are proud to offer these micro-microlots, and can’t wait for you and your customers to experience the delicious stuff that comes in these small packages.

Finca La Benedición took 2nd place in the 2015 El Salvador Cup of Excellence competition, and the quality shown in the lots from here easily illustrates why it placed so high. Producer Ismael Flores grows mostly Pacamara, Bourbon, and Pacas on the 5 manzanas of Finca La Benedición, and he processes his coffees as Washed and Honeys, paying meticulous attention to his processes and displaying his passion for coffee. The Washed coffees are picked, depulped, fermented dry for 14–18 hours, and then dried for 13–20 days on patios. The Honeys are picked, depulped, and dried on raised beds for 13–20 days as well. While production has been hampered a little by coffee-leaf rust and by weather, Ismael is able to produce up to 130 quintales. Access to and from the farm is difficult, however, and bad weather can limit the use of local roads. Ismael has been growing and working in coffee for 15 years, and he considers coffee to be a stable source of income for his family, as well as "a nice way to give sustenance that drives us to get ahead." He hopes to find partners who will buy his whole harvest, which will help him to improve the quality and grow his production.

José Ovidio Flores purchased his farm in 2005, when it was just a 50-cuerda parcel. He has spent the following decade-plus planting Caturra and Bourbon and expanding the area little by little by buying farmland from his neighbors. He grows coffee on about 95 percent of his 10 manzanas of land, and uses the remaining area for fruit-bearing trees like lemon. He processes his coffees both Washed and Honey: This is a Washed lot from the farm Finca Peña Oscura. Coffee is picked ripe, depulped and fermented dry for 12–16 hours, before being washed and dried on patios, which typically takes about two weeks. Despite the growth to the size of his farm, José's annual production is still between 60–70 quintales, very small.

Finca Don Jaime is named for its owner, Jaime Guevara, who grows about 3,000 trees per manzana on 6 manzanas of land. (That's around 18,000 total trees, a combination of Pacamara, Pacas, SL-28, and Gesha varieties.) Jaime has worked in coffee for 15 years, after asking his father how to grow and produce it. Don Jaime told his father, "Dad, when you die, I am going t oplant a coffee tree on top of you"—and he means it as a compliment! Don Jaime processes his coffee as both Washed and Honey: The Washed lots are picked and depulped, then fermented for 18–20 hours before being washed laid on raised beds and dried for 16 days, during which time it's rotated every hour. The Honeys are dried for around 28 or 29 days, and are also rotated hourly until they are done. The production on Finca Don Jaime is about 1600 quintales, though the farm struggles with coffee-leaf rust. (It gives Jaime Guevara nightmares.) Despite the issues with disease, Don Jaime says that growing coffee "is my life, it's exactly what I want to do." He loves to be at his farm, and while he has had many jobs in his life, coffee is what makes him happiest.

Sweet with citric acidity and a smooth mouthfeel; toffee, cocoa, sweet lemon and a peanut aftertaste. Miguel Ángel Lemus has been farming coffee for six years, and his farm and harvests have grown substantially in that time. Starting out, he says he had almost no cofee in 2011; now he is happy to sell most of his entire production to Cafe Imports. He loves coffee, and jokes that it's "too good a fruit for such bad people," and he's curious to know everything that happens to his coffee once it is purchased—from how it's roasted to how it's brewed and consumed. La Montaña Grande is actually notgrande at all, but rather is a 3-manzana farm, planted with about 9,000 coffee trees in a mix of varieties, primarily Bourbon, Pacas, and Pacamara. The coffee is picked ripe, depulped, and fermented dry in tanks for 14–16 hours before being washed and dried on patios for 5–7 days. While the 2015/2016 harvest showed a lower yield to the farm (about 25 quintales), the 20162017 harvest was much better, nearly doubling that total with 45 quinatles.

We are buying the coffee in parchment and doing the ruling and final sorting and bagging ourselves, which allows for more quality control as well as the ability to package some of these very special small lots in custom 35-kilo Pequeños bags, to create more widespread access to these coffees to roasters. Don Ignacio has a long history in farming: Before he started planting coffee in the year 2000, he worked with wood and tomatoes, and started his farms, La Roxanita and Los Pocitos with 500 coffee trees. He grows coffee on about 5 manzanas of rich soil in El Salvador, and has produced fantastic lots year after year: In both 2011 and 2013, his coffees took first place in the CoE competition. He produces a strong selection of heirloom varieties, processing some as fully washed, and some as honey. We are proud to offer these micro-microlots, and can’t wait for you and your customers to experience the delicious stuff that comes in these small packages.

ci-usa-minnesota Soy nut. Soy nut. Gerardo Recinos Chavez is the owner of El Naranjo farm in the mountainous microregion of Alotepec-Metapán in Chalatenango, El Salvador. The farm is about ¾ hectare in size and is located at 1700 masl. Both Pacamara and Pacas varieties are grown on the farm with annual production at 25 quintales. Coffee is harvested from December to February and handpicked. Beans are fermented for 16-18 hours and then dried on African beds for 10-12 days. Gerardo explains the history of the farm saying, “The farm has been around for 12 years and came from one generation to another generation. My dad gave a piece of land to me as inheritance and he told me that if I wanted, to plant to have my own coffee.” Additionally Gerardo has had to overcome the challenge of some roya “rust” disease on El Naranjo.

It would seem logical that the smallest Central American coffee-growing country would produce microlots, but historically, much of the coffee was blended and sold to mills, without much lot differentiation and separation. The rise of specialty coffee in El Salvador has inspired many producers to start to identify and isolate individual varieties, and to experiment with sorting and processing, as a way of attracting buyers and getting higher prices, but access to those resources can still be difficult for smaller growers. For the past few years, Café Imports green buyer Piero Cristiani—who is from El Salvador, and whose mother has a long history in coffee there—has embarked on a project designed to identify, reward, and bring to market the exceptional results of the hard, innovative work that producers are increasingly interested in doing here.

Jose Armando Portillo has been in coffee all his life—in fact, he describes his family as having coffee in their blood. Not only does he grow coffee for export, he also roasts some coffee for the local market.In 2003, Don Jose earned third place in the CoE competition in El Salvador. Don Jose's farm is a 12-manzana plot on which he grows Pacas and Pacamara varieties. His coffee is hand-picked ripe at the height of the season, depulped in the afternoon, and fermented for about eight hours before being washed and laid to dry on concrete patios. The drying time is about eight days. We are proud to offer these micro-microlots, and can’t wait for you and your customers to experience the delicious stuff that comes in these small packages.

london-eu Winey, berry and floral, caramel, lime, cherry and tart. Winey, berry and floral, caramel, lime, cherry and tart. This coffee comes from our washing-station partners at Aricha, which is in the kebele, or village, of Edido, in the woreda, or district, of Yirgacheffe, in the Yirgacheffe region. Aricha is among the microregions whose coffee is dynamic, almost tropical-tasting, with a juicy fruit base and a sugary, floral sweetness. Aside from its near-legendary status as the "birthplace" of Arabica coffee, there is much to love about Ethiopia as a producing nation, including but not limited to the incredible diversity of flavor and character that exists among microregions, specifically within the southwestern Gedeo Zone of Yirgacheffe within the region of Sidama—areas whose names alone conjure thoughts of the finest coffees in the world. Coffee was literally made to thrive in the lush environment Yirgacheffe’s forests provide, developing nuanced floral characteristics, articulate sweetness and sparkling acidity. However, coffee has also adapted to the more arid climate of Harrar, in the northeast of the country; the varieties planted there have historically had more chocolatey, rich undertones. Processing, of course, also plays a significant part in what makes Ethiopian coffees distinct—both distinctly Ethiopian, as well as distinct from one another, washed or natural. Until recently, coffee grown by smallholders and co-ops in Ethiopia were required to be sold through the ECX, where lots were classified by general region, quality (Grade 1–5), and escaped of most of their traceability. In March of 2017, the prime minister of Ethiopia approved a reform allowing co-operatively owned washing stations to export their coffee directly, which allows for separation of top coffee lots, higher prices for farmers, and increased recognition for the best quality coffees in Ethiopia. Greater traceability allows us to buy more directly from the same washing stations year in and year out, and opens the potential for partnerships on a more micro level, with individual farmers or smaller groups within a community, to select out special lots. Café Imports is proud to offer a variety of Ethiopian coffees—an inventory not simply diverse in flavor, but that also represents the various relationships and buying practices that exist within coffee's native region.

Rich sweetness with tart winey acidity and a smooth delicate mouthfeel; lots of berry with floral and chocolate flavors. Kore is the village, or kebele, where this coffee is grown and processes, in the Kochere "district" or woreda within Yirgacheffe. Kore is about 25 kilometers from the center of Yirgacheffe Town. The coffee is picked between November and January, depulped within 12 hours, and washed using spring water. The soils in this region are red-brown clay soil, about 1.5 meters deep. Kochere is southwest of the town of Yirgacheffe and near a little village of Ch'elelek'tu. Kochere coffees have a strong fruit tea–like note 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.

Coffee here is grown near homesteads and planted at low densities, ranging from 1000 to 1800 trees per hectare. Depending on altitudinal variation and rainfall distribution, the harvesting period varies from September to December while main exporting period is from January to August. Harvesting is mostly done by family labor. Freshly handpicked cherries are sorted before pulping and are sold to cooperatives for processing. Fresh clean red cherries are supplied to primary cooperative washing stations, depulped, and fermented. The fermented coffee is then washed with clean water, soaked, then dried to a moisture content of 11.5%. For more information on Ethiopian coffee, visit our Eithiopia origin page. nft,norg,Sidama

london-eu Burnt sugar, cola, raisin, strong complex fruit acidity and juicy. Burnt sugar, cola, raisin, strong complex fruit acidity and juicy. This specific offering comes from the Gora Kone Washing Station, located in the village of Werka in the Nensebo district of the Sidamo region. The station itself has been in operation for seven years and has an estimated 800 contributing farmers registered for cherry delivery throughout the harvest period. These offerings are promptly sorted and floated to remove unwanted and unripe cherries. The prime selection is then depulped using a traditional disc pulper, washed, then dried for an average period of 10-12 days. Aside from its near-legendary status as the "birthplace" of Arabica coffee, there is much to love about Ethiopia as a producing nation, including but not limited to the incredible diversity of flavor and character that exists among microregions, specifically within the southwestern Gedeo Zone of Yirgacheffe within the region of Sidama -- areas whose names alone conjure thoughts of the finest coffees in the world. Coffee was literally made to thrive in the lush environment Yirgacheffe’s forests provide, developing nuanced floral characteristics, articulate sweetness and sparkling acidity. However, coffee has also adapted to the more arid climate of Harrar, in the northeast of the country; the varieties planted there have historically had more chocolatey, rich undertones. Processing, of course, also plays a significant part in what makes Ethiopian coffees distinct -- both distinctly Ethiopian, as well as distinct from one another, washed or natural. One of the other things that make Ethiopia distinct as a growing country is the complexity involved in the coffee market there, and the myriad systems and customs that ensure there's never a dull moment in sourcing the best lots, whether they are from individual farms, co-operatives or grower groups, or from the Ethiopian Commodity Exchange (ECX), a market institution founded in 2008 in attempt to protect small farmers from various risks and market forces that threaten the profitability of their harvest. Cafe Imports is proud to offer a variety of Ethiopian coffees -- an inventory not simply diverse in flavor, but that also represents the various relationships and buying practices that exist within coffee's native region.

This coffee comes from our washing-station partners at Adado, which is in the kebele, or village, of Shara, in the woreda, or district, of Guanga, in the Yirgacheffe region. This coffee is named after the local tribe, "Adado." In these coffees, typically apricots and peaches with supportive citrus and floral higher tones come together in a delightful cup.

Processing, of course, also plays a significant part in what makes Ethiopian coffees distinct—both distinctly Ethiopian, as well as distinct from one another, washed or natural. Until recently, coffee grown by smallholders and co-ops in Ethiopia were required to be sold through the ECX, where lots were classified by general region, quality (Grade 1–5), and escaped of most of their traceability. In March of 2017, the prime minister of Ethiopia approved a reform allowing co-operatively owned washing stations to export their coffee directly, which allows for separation of top coffee lots, higher prices for farmers, and increased recognition for the best quality coffees in Ethiopia. Greater traceability allows us to buy more directly from the same washing stations year in and year out, and opens the potential for partnerships on a more micro level, with individual farmers or smaller groups within a community, to select out special lots.

london-eu Lime zest, floral, lemon and tropical with intense acidity. Lime zest, floral, lemon and tropical with intense acidity. Adado Our Adado Coffees are from the Adado washing station near the kebele (village) or Shara in the woreda (district) of Guanga. Located in theGedeo zone, this coffee is namedafter the local tribe "Adado." Adado is my favorite micro region of Yirgacheffe. Stone fruit, and lots of it, is the predominant flavor profile of this area. Apricots and peaches with supportive citrus and floral higher tones come together in a delightful cup. The natural process of these lots really complement the typical profile of the washed coffee beautifully. One of the great things about Ethiopian coffees is the complete mix of varietals. 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 nft,norg,Washed Yirgacheffe 1

london-eu Floral, apricot, caramel, lemon, sweet, clean and delicate. Floral, apricot, caramel, lemon, sweet, clean and delicate. Aricha is the name of the washing station where this coffee is processed. Idido is the village, or kebele, where this coffee is grown and processed, in a microregion of Yirgacheffe. Aricha is about 8 kilometers from the center of Yirgacheffe Town. The coffee is picked ripe between November and January, depulped within 12 hours, and washed clean with spring water. The soils in this region are red-brown clay soil, about 1.5 meters deep. Aside from its near-legendary status as the "birthplace" of Arabica coffee, there is much to love about Ethiopia as a producing nation, including but not limited to the incredible diversity of flavor and character that exists among microregions, specifically within the southwestern Gedeo Zone of Yirgacheffe within the region of Sidama -- areas whose names alone conjure thoughts of the finest coffees in the world. Coffee was literally made to thrive in the lush environment Yirgacheffe’s forests provide, developing nuanced floral characteristics, articulate sweetness and sparkling acidity. However, coffee has also adapted to the more arid climate of Harrar, in the northeast of the country; the varieties planted there have historically had more chocolatey, rich undertones. Processing, of course, also plays a significant part in what makes Ethiopian coffees distinct -- both distinctly Ethiopian, as well as distinct from one another, washed or natural. One of the other things that make Ethiopia distinct as a growing country is the complexity involved in the coffee market there, and the myriad systems and customs that ensure there's never a dull moment in sourcing the best lots, whether they are from individual farms, co-operatives or grower groups, or from the Ethiopian Commodity Exchange (ECX), a market institution founded in 2008 in attempt to protect small farmers from various risks and market forces that threaten the profitability of their harvest. Cafe Imports is proud to offer a variety of Ethiopian coffees -- an inventory not simply diverse in flavor, but that also represents the various relationships and buying practices that exist within coffee's native region.

The coffee in this container is 100% from women owned or managed farms. There is an additional premium Cafe Imports and roasters are paying for this coffee. The proceeds will go into a program CODECH chose to promote health in women's lives. CODECH convened a meeting with the Women Producers to determine were the funds would be better spent and were there was the most need. They determined 50% will go directly to the women who contributed to this lot and the remaining 50% towards a Women's Health workshop. The municipality of Concepcion Huista has a high infant mortality index hence they decided to have the program focus on this. Huehuetenango has been for years one of Guatemala’s prime coffee regions and it continues to be one. The amount of high-altitude land in this region is very vast and the varieties cultivated are Bourbons or derivatives; both of these are essential to produce quality coffee. The profile of this cup is very fruity with higher and brighter citric-acidity. It is also very common to taste some chocolate notes in the background. 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 For a picture gallery from CODECH click here and here. 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.

Ixban is a group of eight smallholder producers in Huehuetenango, within the region of San Pedro Necta. All of the producers have been working in coffee their whole lives and rely on it for their entire income. Their high average altitude means their harvest is somewhat later in the season, peaking in the beginning of March, which is when most of the lower farms are finishing their year's harvest up. The harvest tends to come in two main "rounds," as the trees mature: The coffee is handpicked and sorted by the families, who also depulp and ferment the coffee and dry it on their own personal patios before bringing it to the Bella Vista dry mill for hulling and sorting.

ci-usa-minnesota Sweet with tart acidity and a smooth mouthfeel; toffee, red grape and peanut flavors. Sweet with tart acidity and a smooth mouthfeel; toffee, red grape and peanut flavors. Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee is mainly produced by the Wallenford, Mavis Bank, Moy Hall, and Old Tavern Estates. It is consistently the highest-priced coffee in the world (outside of an auction system). A typical Jamaican farmer will pick his or her own "cherry-berry," and drop them off to these estates for processing and payment. For the 15–20 years that we have been buying Jamaican coffee, we have not been able to work or communicate with the producers or farmers. In 2014, we met a young Jamaican coffee farmer who is a member of the Jamaican Coffee Farmers Association, a group of about 250 small producers in Jamaica that are trying to band together, process their own coffee, and bypass the big estates' processing services. Since meeting and visiting their farms in Jamaica, Café Imports has prefinanced Arthur and the Jamaican Coffee Farmers Association, so that they can produce and process their own coffee and gain a greater share of the income generated from this coffee.

Soft and sweet with tart citric acidity and a smooth mouthfeel; lots of sweet citrus fruit flavor with toffee, floral, cane sugar, apple and chocolate. Mwiria factory is strategically positioned in a major coffee growing zone. It has a total of 1080 members of which 1060 are active while only 20 are inactive. On average each farmer has approximately 350 coffee trees and 1 hectare of land. Other crops grown by farmers in this region include passion fruits, bananas, cabbages, carrots and tea although farmers are not allowed to intercrop with coffee. Compliance with this is checked by the field committee. Villages that take their coffee to the factory are Kirigi, Kiini, Mukangu and Kathangari. The factory employs three permanent workers and approximately 30 temporary employeesduring the peak season. At Mwiria there are 9 waste-water soak pits which are enough for draining waste water and are positioned away from the river to prevent water pollution. Napier grass and trees are planted around the pits to help in purifying the waste water. The factory is receiving assistance from our partner Coffee Management Services (CMS). The long-term goal is to increase coffee production through farmer training, input access, Good Agricultural Practice seminars, and a sustainable farming handbook updated and distributed annually. Through the pre-financing they receive, farmers are given advances for school fees and farm inputs. The factory manager is re-trained every year by CMS, in addition to field days being held by the minister of agriculture and agrochemical companies that deliver inputs to the farmers. Demonstration plots are planted at the factory to reinforce the best practices taught throughout the year. After picking, ripe cherry is brought to the factory before it undergoes processing to remove the skin and pulp–known as the wet processing method. Wastewater is discarded in soaking pits, and is also recirculated for conservation. The factory is using a disc pulper with three sets of discs to remove the skin and fruit from the inner parchment layer that is protecting the green coffee bean. After depulping, the coffee is fermented overnight to break down the sugars, before it is cleaned, soaked and spread out on the raised drying tables. Time on the drying tables depends on climate, ambient temperature and volumes under processing, and can take from 7 to 15 days in total.

The producers bring coffee in cherry form the day it is harvested, and at the factory it is sorted, depulped, fermented underwater for 8–15 hours, washed three times, and then spread on metallic drying tables for 7–20 hours. This mill is one of the highest elevation in the area, and the cooler temperatures are thought to contribute to the quality of the coffee through its maturation on the trees in the area, as well as through the processing. Thiriku is also the only factory in the county that has an eco-pulper on-site. For more infromation about coffee production in Kenya, visit our Kenya Origin Page. nft,norg,Microlot,Microlot 1

The Gikirima Factory is located on the slopes of Mount Kenya, an area with an optimal balance of conditions for growing coffee. This area experiences two season of rainfall, resulting in two seasons of harvest. The main crop is harvested October through December and the fly crop harvested April through June. 80% of all coffee is picked during main crop and 20% during fly crop. Smallholder farmers in the surrounding areas pick only ripe cherries and deliver them to Gikirima where they undergo a traditional washed process. Cherries are de-pulped, and fermented in a soaking tank overnight where the sugars are naturally broken down. The coffee is then washed and placed on raised drying beds where it remains for an average period of 7-15 days, weather depending. Frequent turning and sorting of the coffee occurs while it is drying. Gikirima has a long term goal of increasing coffee production and establishing transparent, trust-based relationships with smallholder farmers through farmer training, agricultural practice seminars, and providing the most current printed references on sustainable farming.
