Altitude: 1850 MASL
Tasting Notes: Cherry, Caramel, Creamy
Another selection from the 2nd year purchasing from Roble Negro'sFincaCedralAlto. Simply put this coffee and the farmer, Jorge, are absolutely incredible. Roble Negro is an example of a truly biodiverse, intentional piece of land that is working togethernaturallyfor the good of the final product AND the good of those around it. Jorge is very passionate about preserving the environment - particularly thenaturalsprings on the land. In addition to caring forFincaCedralAltohe also owns a recycling company that he started in response to Costa Rica's pollution levels.
If you were to take a walk at Roble Negro, like Sean got to last year, you would see the perfect picture of biodiversity. The water sources on the property provide drinking water for nearby towns and irrigation for the surrounding farms. There are waterfalls, orchids, bromeliads. It's a gardener's dream. You'd see oak, cedar, fig, avocado and guava trees. Cypress trees act asnaturalwind breaks. A short list of some animals you'd see are tiger cats, armadillos and mountain lions. Lemon, plantain and other fruit trees provide food for the workers and the animals. Jorge has also diversified his income by raising 10 cattle for milk and meat. You'd see him picking all the weeds by hand and never using an herbicide. Instead they harvest microorganisms from the humus layor of the forest floor to create a non-toxic insect control and to protect against leaf rust. While processing they take the cherry skins and reincorporate them into the soil to act as fertilizer. This coffee and Jorge's work should be celebrated and seen as an example of the beauty and efficacy of biodiversity. This coffee will taste like cherry and caramel with a creamy body.
Hang Tough knows you've got a lot on your plate. This Guatemalan dark roasted blend is as familiar as trustworthy. With tastes notes of dark chocolate and toffee and a full body you'll get the jolt you need to keep keepin' on.
Coffee Name - Hutwe
Origin: DR Congo
Altitude: 1600-1800 MASL
Tasting Notes: Pineapple, Mixed Berries, Sweet
This beautiful coffee comes from the Hutwe washing station in the Kirumba zone of DR Congo. This area of Congo ecologically is perfect for coffee production - plentiful rainfall, high altitude and fertile volcanic soil. But it also currently deals with dangerous rebel groups, poverty and a lack of infrastructure. This has made producing quality arabica coffee difficult for this region. That's why Olam Specialty Coffee Importers started the Virunga Coffee Company. Their goal is to improve farmer's livelihoods and the land in Kivu. We think this coffee is a wonderful representation of the work being done and we are proud to carry it. It's a bourbon varietal grown 1600-1800 MASL and tastes like pineapple and mixed berries.
