EL SALVADOR Santa Leticia – Finca Santa Leticia was passed down to Ricardo Valdivieso during a time of great turmoil in El Salvador’s history. At the peak of the conflict in the 1980s, Ricardo came face to face with a firing squad in defense of his family’s land. He was not shot but spent many years in exile before he was able to return to Finca Santa Leticia. Over the decades, his career as a coffee producer has been challenged in just about every way you could imagine. Today, Ricardo works with his daughter, Monica, to protect and nurture their groves of Pacamara and Bourbon arabica. During the harvest, a great deal of care and focus is dedicated to picking the best quality of cherry and gently drying it on clay patios.

ETHIOPIA Yirgacheffe Natural Organic – Zelelu Ararso, at 58 years, is a returning participant farmer and an important figure in the single farmer Lots program. This year we’re thrilled to have a naturally processed lot, fully sundried by the Addis Ketema cooperative, of which Zelelu is a member. Addis Ketema, and Zelelu’s home, are found in the Wenago district of the coveted Gedeo Zone– the narrow section of plateau dense with savvy farmers whose coffee is known as “Yirgacheffe”. Wenago is a small district that sits between Dilla, the mighty university city and coffee transit hub at the northern tip of Gedeo, and Yirga Chefe, in the heart of the zone, whose diminutive stature holds back none of its legendary global presence. Zelelu is an accomplished individual, even by the standards of Gedeo, whose dense farming and processing landscape has a reputation for competitive farmers. He has earned model farming awards at local and state levels to pioneer single farmer exports; the efforts of which helped like-minded farmers throughout Yirgacheffe’s union achieve direct sale and see their coffees priced and roasted with just about unprecedented transparency. In addition, Zelelu educates his children to a college level and will soon be processing his own harvests. Much respect.
