More about this coffee 

First the harvest is all selective and done by hand with no machinery used at all. This helps to screen the quality once it gets to the benefcio (processing plant) which has many steps to screen the cherries to make sure only the ripest, clean, free of defect cherries make it through to the drying process.

At the top of their beneficio we have a “Coffee reception area” where they check by eye what cherries are ripe and red. All of those that don’t qualify this manual eye test are taken out and placed in an area for seconds.

After this step process, the best coffee cherries are ready to be pulped with clean water and then is store in the farm´s fermentation tanks during 72 Hours to have the highest potential of giving a full flavuored, followed by being washed and then dried on African beds for 10 - 15 days.

Indeed, besides good-tasting coffee, the coalition believes that the preservation of the environment and biodiversity through agroecological principles are key factors of resilience to the climate crisis. On the justice front, the Coalition advocates for the respect of fundamental human and labour rights across the whole supply chain, as well as inclusivity, regardless of gender identity, race, ethnicity, age or religion.
