Brasil Obata
Pret: 120,00 lei / 1kg   Comanda  Comandă

Fazenda Obata is situated within the Triangulo Mineiro, in the famed Cerrado region. Coffees from this area are often touted as some of the best that Brazil has to offer. The dark red soil typical of the area produces an excellent cup. This farm produces only 100% organic coffee. Its 895,000 coffee trees are closely monitored by a full-time agricultural engineer to ensure consistency and quality. Ricardo Aguiar Resende, a third-generation coffee farmer, directs the farm’s production, commercialization and social projects along with his wife, Gisele.Fazenda Sertao has gone above and beyond in its commitment to social and environmental equity. The 75-110 workers at this farm travel every day from three towns: Perdizes, Patrocinio and Igrejinha da Macega. Ricardo arranges the transportation for the workers every day, though some actually live on the property. The production of natural fertilizer from livestock and a new biodigestor combine to produce all the energy needed for the farm. FNSF strives to produce all of the energy and most of the inputs needed for coffee production. The reforestation of native trees is underway, adding to the farm’s portion of shade-grown coffee, which is not commonly found in Brazil.In January of 2012, the farm became the world’s first Fair Trade Certified™ coffee estate. Within 3 months of certification, the farm’s 110 workers (40% of whom are women) earned $7,250 in community development premiums, which they elected to invest in critical healthcare programs. Through FNSF’s participation in Fair Trade USA’s Fair Trade for All initiative, 30 workers have already received eye exams, 27 received glasses, and 11 received dental care.

Pret: 120,00 lei / 1kg   Comanda  Comandă

The Sofia lot is produced by a small producers' association called Sandoná Group in Sandoná, Nariño. The organization supports about 17 coffee growers. The group has established a partnership with Inconexus, an exporter of Colombia coffee; they work in partnership to improve farming techniques in order to improve quality and increase the value of  their coffee. The primary shade tree for Sandoná's is the Inga tree, a common shade tree known for its nitrogen-fixing properties. This lot was wet-milled at Belcosub, a local beneficio.

The small town of  Sandoná has a rich history. In the Pre-Columbian era, the indigenous Quillacingas inhabited the area near Sandoná. After the invasion of the Spanish, the Pope granted the land to several vassals and governors.  The Sandoná family name first appears in a ledger from 1540 of the most important local landowners.  The family's hacienda became the seat of the town, and was later bought by the church and managed by a convent of nuns.

Ethiopia Sidamo Honeybird

The coffees of Yirgacheffe have long been prized for their delicate, tea-like aromatics and clean citrus flavor. We offer you an excellent example from a producer committed to both quality and equity.

Many of our certified Ethiopian offerings come from Oromia Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union (OCFCU), a small-farmers owned cooperative union which has members from all coffee growing areas in Oromia regional state. Established in 1999 to facilitate the direct export of coffee produced by small farmers cooperatives, OCFCU works exclusively in Oromia Regional State, which accounts for 65 percent of the country’s total coffee growing land. Oromia, along with their General Manager, Tadesse Meskela, have been internationally recognized for their implementation of farmer support programs. OCFCU has an excellent reputation for supporting its members and their communities. The Union pays 70% of its net profit back to the cooperatives, who in turn pay 70% of their profit to the member farmers. Farmers benefit by being paid three times in one season, allowing for greater stability. This strategy of support has enabled OCFCU to grow from 34 primary cooperatives representing 22,691 household farmers to 217 primary cooperatives representing 200,000 household farmers. OCFCU maintains a members bank to provide much needed pre-harvest financing, a major impediment for Ethiopian farmers. They also provide their farmers with insurance options to cover coffee against loss.

Along with focusing on farmer equity, Oromia has recently opened a new cupping lab to continue their commitment to quality control. The processing facility has a volume of nearly 5-7 tonnes of coffee per day, creating jobs for 600 – 900 temporary employees.

In the late 1870s, Jose María Monzón bought two Acatenango farms known as “La Colina” and “El Carmen”. It was Jose’s son, Mateo Mejia, who built a small mill to process his own coffee cherries. Don Mateo is said to be the pioneer of coffee production in Acatenango. To this day, Finca El Carmen is still owned and managed by the Mejia family. In 1944, violence in the region brought a large number of indigenous families to the area. José María Mejía Mazariegos was Acatenango´s mayor at the time and accomodated the families among several farms in the region. El Carmen hosted 25 families that with time moved to the lower areas of the farm and established what is known today as Los Planes Village. Over the past 50 years, El Carmen has been recognized for its cup quality by ANACAFE, Guatemala’s national coffee association. A combination of rich history and notable quality sets this coffee apart.




Honduras Sierra de Agalta
Pret: 120,00 lei / 1kg   Comanda  Comandă

Parque Nacional Sierra de Agalta is located in the Honduran state of Olancho, neighboring the Natural Park of “Sierra de Agalta” and the Biosphere of the “Rio Platano,” one of the most diverse and rich rain forest areas in Central America. In 1979, UNESCO declared it a Natural Reserve and World Heritage.

This project is focused on helping small-scale farmers with less than 5 hectares that are fully dependent on coffee, while preserving one of the most vulnerable rain forest areas in Honduras and Central America. Studies show the “Sierra de Agalta” region will experience a decrease in yearly precipitations and higher temperatures in the near future. This heavy contrast in weather patterns will eventually have a direct impact on the lives of the local small farmers and Honduras in general.

Papua Sigri AA
Pret: 120,00 lei / 1kg   Comanda  Comandă

Coffee has that distinct family connection to Blue Mountain coffee from Jamaica, except today this origin is probably superior, and a whole lot less costly. AA is the top grade produced.

Sigri plantation, situated in the Wahgi Valley, in the Western Highlands Province of Papua New Guinea, was established in the 1950s and rapidly gained a reputation that has continued to grow with Sigri being internationally recognized as producing a gourmet coffee equal to the world's best for more than 20 years.

All plantings are exclusively Arabica, concentrating on the Typica varieties which originate from seed introduced to Papua New Guinea from Jamaica Blue Mountain Typica rootstock. Coffee is grown at 5000 feet in elevation. This year's coffee seems particularly striking with its ethereal hickory notes, a unique but not over-the-top flavor profile.

Main crop is harvested from May to July. All growing and processing practices follow a system which has been throughly proven over many years, and insists on the highest standards and quality at every stage.

Sigri coffee undergoes a rigorous wet factory process. Quality control begins in the field; coffee cherry is hand-picked and carefully checked for uniformity; it must be red and fully ripe which allows for the correct balance of sugar and acid within the cherry. This selected cherry is then pulped on the day of picking.

A fermentation process follows, which entails a period of three days broken every 24 hours by washing - but unlike other washed processed coffees, Sigri's process follows this by total immersion in water for a further day, which creates a unique flavor profile.

All Sigri coffee is sun dried to further enhance flavor. Careful conditioning, hulling, grading and hand sorting follows. Sigri considers soil and water conservation as a priority, and, the plantation is bird and eco friendly. The plantation employs a medium density shade strategy, using two types of shade trees. This promotes even ripening of coffee cherries and provides habitat for at least 90 species of birds.

Cup Characteristics: Unique flavor profile has smoky, hickory background note reminiscent of better Jamaica coffees. Layered, refined sweetness.

Southern Estates The Southern Estates are located in Mbozi and Mbeya, in the southern highlands of Tanzania. Although total production is usually less than 500 metric tons, the coffee from Utengule, Lunji and Kanji Lalji estates has a very good reputation. The Utengule coffee estate is a traditional, well-managed East African Coffee farm that produces an exquisite Arabica coffee. There is a large variety of rare trees and flowers growing on the farm as well as several rivers. By walking through the 500 acre coffee estate you can explore how coffee is being grown, harvested, and processed. Mondul Estate This farm was developed by Count Vottorio Davico di Quittengo in 1931 after a careful inspection of the fertile and uninhabited areas on the slopes of the Mondul mountains in Northern Tanganyika. He fell in love with East Africa after working briefly for the Central Africa Exploration Company in Uganda. After convincing his family in Italy to assist him in the purchase of the land, the Mondul Coffee Estate was founded. Count Davico died in 1983 and was buried at Mondul on the highest hill overlooking the estate. His two sons are now running the estate with the same entrepreneurial spirit and social commitment of their father. It has a total production of 1400kg/ha. Burka Estate This farm was established in 1899 by German settlers and has continued as a coffee producing farm. The estate covers an area of 1500 acres with an annual production of 1000 metric tons. The estate is also home to the Arusha Coffee Lodge, which has coffee plantation tours, horseback riding, mountain biking, and nature trails. Ngila Estate This estate is situated in the Karatu District on the slopes of the Ngorongoro crater and is surrounded by the Ngila Forest reserve. It was founded in the 20th century by a German family and later taken over by British farmers after the WWII, who sold it to Ruldolf Meyer in 1990. Lyamungu Estate Lyamungu is located on the southern foothills of Mt. Kilimanjaro, approximately 15km from the Moshi/Arusha main highway. It was established in 1934 as a center for coffee research in Tanzania and is now leased to Mufindi Tea Company.

Zimbabwe Pezurru AAA
Pret: 120,00 lei / 1kg   Comanda  Comandă

The Pezuru Estate totals 294 hectares, with a quarter of the farm still under natural forest.   It is a multipurpose estate with only 45 hectares growing coffee, the first seedlings being planted in 1962.  Its location adjacent to the Chiremba Dam, which is fed by small streams and acts as a general catchment area from the surrounding hills,  provides support for the irrigation of coffee during the long May to October dry season and also provides bass and bream fishing for the local community.

The Pezuru Estate possesses sandy and loamy soil and is located at an altitude of 1,100 to 1,300 masl.  While not  high by many origin standards, the relatively extreme degree of longitude (32.5 degrees south) provides a climate equivalent to 1,600 masl.

This coffee is a mixture of Catimor and Caturra varieties, from which the harvested coffee is blended to provide a uniform quality. The quality of farm management leads to meticulous standards for ripe cherry-picking and processing, ensuring quality of cup.   The hand-picking and wet processing of the coffee occurs at the farm’s onsite pulpery, with sun drying on trellis platforms. The dry milling, grading, and preparation for export are all done on the farm as well.

Cup Characteristics

Winey, lingering acidity. Notes of sweet tea, citrus, caramel, sweeter and creamier as cools.
