Roast profile and cupping notes: Tangerine, Caramel, Cocoa
This blend is imported directly from the Farmers Project group and consists of coffees from the following farms: Cafe con Amor, Zalmari Estate, El Greco, Familia Fernandez, and Sircof. Their mission is “to cultivate quality coffee using sustainable practices and to establish long-term relationships with buying partners who believe in doing business with integrity and fairness in mind”.
Why we love it:
This blend from five farmers in the Central Valley of Costa Rica is sweet, silky and works well across the roast spectrum. We love this coffee as a pour-over and batch brew, but it truly shines as a creamy, caramel-sweet shot of espresso with hints of citrus and chocolate.
Farmers Project was founded by Jonathan Jost and Marianella Baez Jost of Café Con Amor. When they gave up their corporate jobs to follow their passion as coffee farmers in Costa Rica, they were struck by how hard local farmers worked, only to sell their coffee for prices that could not sustain the most basic lifestyle. The Farmers Project was started to help local farmers in Costa Rica sell their coffee for a fair price to support their workers, their farms, and their families. Sharing this vision, the five farms that make up this group share knowledge and learnings with one another and export their specialty coffee together. This blend represents their collective efforts towards a sustainable and equitable future.
