This coffee is part of an initiative from one of our green bean suppliers to match growers with roasters to form direct trade relationships which benefit the grower in the form of getting the highest price for their coffee (considerably more than the FAIRTRADE rate), and the roaster by gaining exclusivity to some amazing micro lot coffees that may have otherwise been mixed with other coffees in co ops. This is truely sustainable trade! This will be our 5th year working with this farm and the coffee gets better every year. Leidy Chinchilla inherited the farm from her grandmother, her main income is from coffee but she also produces fruit such as bananas, limes and mangos. She grows Pacas and Catui veritals which are shade grown at around 1200masl in rich volcanic soil. When at optimum ripeness, cherries are carefully picked by hand, and are transported to COCAFELOL where they are wet processed for 24hours. Drying is in greenhouses, mechanical driers and patios.
Cupping Notes: This is a chocolatey coffee with honey sweetness, creamy body and crisp acidity.
