The farmers of the anaccafe co-op almost lost their crop to flooding. Then, corruption of getting a low price for coffee further put their crop at risk. However, Cafe Intencional, purposefully bought their coffee at an higher/fair rate to help save the farms and the people in the town of Cococho.

Danilo and his sons Marcelo and Sérgio represent the 4th and 5th generation of the family that has been in coffee growing since 1930. In the beginning, coffee was only for family consumption, but it was Jairo Barbosa, Danilo's father, who believed in coffee and made it the family business. More than just a business, Jairo wished that people could experience the same feeling he had, sit around a table, and enjoy a quality drink produced with love. The family believes that coffee goes far beyond the energy it can generate; for them, the commitment and dedication in each batch is reflected in each cup. The coffees are produced in a meticulous way, by family, who are also considered the collaborators, some of them with more than 20 years on the property. There were decades of studies, ups and downs, tests, and dedication. With evolution and tradition walking together, today the family works hard to produce the best lots.

Cafe Intencional works with Julio Martinez, a native of Guatemala and an exporter for over 20 years. His close ties and relationships with Guatemalan farm owners opened the door to this import business. Julio forged other relationships with farm owners and workers. His care and concern for the workers from the Guatemalan farm owners were so impactful and a testament to the nature of the Guatemalan people. Family first. Caring for each other and building long-term, sustainable relationships in business and personally. They also work with a program called LIFT, which assists the community's children in education from grade school through high school. The majority of kids in Guatemala stop education after middle school. This program supports them in lower education and helps them receive higher education.

Jorge is a third-generation farmer and grew up visiting his grandpa’s and parents’ coffee farms. He studied to be a veterinarian in Guatemala and still works part-time as a vet in the capital city of Tegucigalpa.

Jorge and his wife Vanessa owned a smaller farm for several years; he bought Finca Tierra de Leyendas in 2011 with the dream of growing a large and successful coffee farm (Tierra de Leyendas translates to “Land of Legends”). At the time, half of the property had been stripped to be used for cattle grazing and planting sugar cane, so Jorge worked to replant trees throughout the farm and decided to plant coffee below half of the remaining forest and leave the other half as a protected reserve.

He loves growing coffee because it provides so much employment. He started with 5 full-time employees and now has 30 full-time employees and 120 pickers during the harvest. He is proud to pay better than most in the area and see how the lives of his employees have improved. He told me, ‘I know the homes of my employees, and I have seen how they have improved over the years. That is what makes it all worth it for him.

Jorge is a strong Christian and is very involved in the Great Commission church in Tegucigalpa and the Great Commission Foundation (https://grancomision.org/). He is currently on the leadership team for the church and oversees 8 discipleship groups.

The coffee is grown between 1,200 and 1,900 meters above sea level in sandy and clay soil. They grow a mix of castillo and caturra varieties, and the coffee is fully washed and dried either on patios or on raised beds, depending on the topography and other conditions.

This coffee is an Ethyl Acetate (EA) Decaf. Ethyl Acetate is a naturally occurring sugar found in many fruits and is a byproduct of fermented sugar. It is used as a solvent to bond with and remove caffeine from green coffee. Through a process of steaming and low pressure, the EA bonds with the caffeine molecules over the course of eight hours before having one last steam to remove any trace of the EA. We have found this process to do a very good job of maintaining the coffee flavor, with a bright and complex acidity, jasmine florals, tropical fruit, and a clean sweet finish.

Malawi is our best-selling coffee and the coffee we use in our canned cold brew. We love being able to buy coffee from Mzuzu, Malawi.

It is a democratic and empowered collection of farmers. They provide their workers with free health care and education to all their workers as well as free housing for widows and orphans.
