We've been proudly featuring Fair Trade/Organic coffees since 1999 and throughout that time we've developed longstanding relationships with a number of co-ops that provide us with exemplary coffee year after year.

Organic Colombia Planadas

Planadas , Tolima

Cupping notes : Sweet-smoky, Tamarind, Layered
Roast level : DARK

Our Organic Colombia Tolima comes from the municipality of Planadas in the southern tip of the Tolima Province. Lying in the foothills of the Central Andes, Tolima is known for its mineral-rich soils and fresh water. Though relatively unknown in the coffee industry until recently, Tolima is now the country’s third largest coffee producer and is increasingly being recognized for producing great tasting coffee.

The beans in this lot come from two small cooperatives in Planadas: ASOPAP and Resguardo Indígena Nasa We’sx.

The 29 members of the ASOPAP cooperative are fully committed to quality coffee and organic standards from their farms, which are situated at 5,400-6,200 feet. Their beans have yielded excellent cup profiles for some time, drawing attention from international coffee traders.

The Nasa We’sx are an indigenous community brought to Planadas in the early 1900s by the Colombian Army as a mine workforce. For decades, they were caught in the conflict between the army and the largest guerilla group in the country, FARC, until recently, when they made a peace pact with local guerrillas.

Organic Guatemala Guaya’b

Jacaltenengo , Huehuetenango

Fair Trade/Organic

Cupping notes : Strawberry jam, Milk chocolate, Currant
Roast level : MEDIUM-LIGHT

Guaya’b is a cooperative of over 300 indigenous Mayan and Quichua farming families in the region of Jacaltenango, Huehuetenango. Since the introduction of coffee into the Jacaltenango region 40 years ago natural habitats, flora and fauna have slowly made a comeback from the once de-forested land. The recreation of the natural habitat has allowed for the reduction of soil erosion, restored natural habits and given the coffee crops a lush canopy that allows them to ripen slowly. Rich & delicately fruity; you’ll experience a thought provoking brew that begins with a chewy, chocolaty body that develops into a strawberry jaminess infused with deeper, bright fruit tones that suggest currant and raspberry.

Organic Mexico Cuatro Hermanos

Ramal Santa Cruz , Chiapas

Fair Trade/Organic

Cupping notes : Red danjou pear, Raspberry honey, Malt-like body
Roast level : MEDIUM-LIGHT

Situated deep in the interior folds of the Southern Sierra Madre Mountains in Chiapas, Mexico is the coffee growing cooperative of Ramal Santa Cruz. Among this multitude of coffee farms lies the home of Augustin Sanchez Espinoza and his three brothers who all farm together on adjacent parcels of land. The farms of the Brothers Sanchez are at the upper reaches of viable coffee cultivation, starting at 1600 meters and topping at just over 1800 meters, the highest of all coffee grown in the cooperative. The family began planting coffee on the land in the early 1970s. Many of the original plants are still producing. The majority of the coffee is Typica and Bourbon with a scattering of more recently planted Caturra.

The coffee from these four brothers and their farms make up our Mexico Fair Trade, Organic, Ramal Santa Cruz , Cuatro Hermanos.  This coffee greets you with a  red danjou pear citrus acidity followed with hints of raspberry honey and Meyer lemon.  We hope you will enjoy this extraordinarily smooth coffee from the Cuatro Hermanos.
