Tasting Notes: Dark Chocolates, Carmel, Fruit
When it comes to flavor this coffee does not disappoint. At our markets it is a top seller! We love that we can support the growing trend of speciality coffee in Malawi. Here's a little about their coffee story.
Nestled into southern central Africa, the Republic of Malawi forms a landlocked strip of a plateau surrounded by Zambia, Mozambique and Tanzania. It is one of the most densely populated countries in Africa with over 13 million people living in only 118,000 square kilometers, of which 20% is water. Coffee was introduced to Malawi in the late 1800's by the British and peaked in production at about 70,000 bags during the 1990's. Flowering happens from December to February, and a May to September harvest follows. Generally all coffees are washed, dried on raised beds, and exported in 60 kg jute bags.View full product details
Flavor Notes: Full Body, Bold, Smooth, Smoky
Sumatra is our darkest roast. What I love most about this lot of coffee is the people we are able to support when we purchase it.
Here is their story:
This lot comes from the female members of the cooperative Kopi Wanita, which is a part of a larger grower group called Koptan Gayo Maegan Berseri. Kopi Wanita is a Fairtrade-certified group which grows organic coffee in the Jagong District of Aceh, Sumatra.
Almost 40 percent of Kopi Wanita's members are female, many of them widowed or raising children alone as single parents. Agriculture is the primary source of income for most people in the area, and it is especially difficult for single mothers to tend to both crops and children, in addition to households and community obligations. The co-op hopes that by separating and marketing the women's coffee they will be able to return the profits to training programs for the female members, including farm training and education in other skills that will help them earn a sustainable living
Help us continue to support this great co-op and enjoy an amazing cup of coffee in the process!View full product details
Flavor Notes: Chocolate, toffee-nut, mild smooth
Our Brazil coffee has a chocolate toffee-nut flavor that will dazzle your senses.
Our Brazil coffee is sourced from a traditional coffee farm run by the Paiva family in the Minas Gerais region. The original family farm, built in 1840, pioneered much of the quality coffee production in Brazil. Homera Paiva, a nephew to the original coffee farmer has recently won the Cup of Excellence for planting outstanding coffee varieties and his innovative post-harvesting process.
The Paiva farms are dedicated to the planting of native trees and water preservation. When you purchase our Brazil coffee, you are supporting a family legacy of natural and responsible coffee farming.
