Price per 2 lb. ECUADOR Chiramoya – This coffee is a blend of various small family farms from the Pichincha and Imbabura provinces along with 150 hectares curated by Galo and Maria Alexandra. “Chirimoya” is the title of the small-farm blend, in honor of the native and uniquely delicious fruit widely grown and consumed across the Andes. This coffee is processed at home and dried on hand-made structures and greenhouses. This 350-hectare estate has been in Galo’s family for 80 years.
ETHIOPIA Hambela Natural Organic – The bulk of production comes from small, family-owned farms where coffee is cultivated on just a few acres of land. Cherries are carefully hand sorted to remove underripe and damaged beans and then the moisture is carefully reduced to 11% on raised beds designed to gently dry coffee with lots of airflow. Simultaneously, Nura Korate carries out activities that often go unnoticed but are crucial for small producers, including training producers in best organic practices and investing in basic infrastructure needs like road improvements and establishing local warehouses. Sidama Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union (SCFCU) focuses on establishing a certification process for local cooperatives, creating micro-credit for producers and investing in social programs on a larger scale. Environmental training programs, healthcare initiatives, life insurance, and educational opportunities are just some of the ways SCFCU strives to improve the quality of life for coffee producers and their families.

Price per 2 lb. JAVA Estate Jampit – From the Indonesian island of the same name, these crops were planted by the Dutch 300 years ago, in the 17th century. This coffee has a smooth, medium full–bodied, thick flavor. This Java is sourced from the Jampit Estate located on the island of Java, Indonesia. In the 17th Century Java coffee was first cultivated in low lying areas, but by the 19th Century coffee leaf rust had destroyed production, forcing new coffee cultivation into the highlands where high altitudes and volcanic soil provide perfect growing conditions.
