Specialty Coffee Altitude BIO - Limited Edition - 8.8 oz. Whole Bean

Ethiopia - Colombia - Honduras

Ethiopia
From the birthplace of Arabica in Anfilloo district’s Wallagga region, this organic washed coffee, sourced from wild coffee forests, offers the full abundance of flavours and aromas of a Grand Cru.
The coffee trees grow under natural forest shade, in large forests accessible only by foot due to the density of the trees and topography of the land. They join together small plots cultivated by 35 small local producers delivering the “Moka Longberry” variety coffee cherries, carefully sought after for their soft aromas.
This exceptional terroir delivers a wonderfully unique cup thanks to the remarkable quality and richness of the soil and the variety and botanical diversity of the highland region.

Colombia:
Located in the south of Planadas, Tolima, on the foothills of the Andes mountain range, the Camilo Enciso association brings together more than 70 small organic producers with 3 to 4 hectares each.
The plantations, situated at altitudes between 1600 and 2000 meters, focus on old varieties (non-resistant to rust) such as Caturra, Bourbon, and Typica, which today is extremely rare.
The volcanic soil, paired with the temperate and humid climate of the country’s south-east, afford this 100% organic coffee rather unique qualities: fine notes of jasmine and fruity aromas of peach and blackcurrant.

Honduras:
Following strict organic agriculture practices, Honduras coffee is cultivated in La Paz in the municipality of Marcala, situated at 1200-1700m altitude. It is the product of many small producers, partnered within the COSMA cooperative (Café Organico Marcala). They work together to run their plantations following very strict environmental values. The approximately 700 small producers regularly receive training on a range of topics, from degustation to organic agriculture.

Specialty Coffee Baba - India - Limited Edition - 8.8 oz. Whole Bean

Across this coffee’s region of origin unfolds the story of a Sufi saint by the name of Baba Budan. According to legend, Baba Budan discovered the wonders of coffee during a pilgrimage to Mecca in the 16th century and smuggled away seven “moka” beans by hiding them in his beard. Returning home, he planted them on the hillsides of Chikmagalur in the Karnataka region, and thus began the rise of Indian coffee in the region.

The hillsides of Chikmagalur are now known as "Baba Budan Hills." The region produces Arabica coffee on plots situated between 1000 and 1500m altitude. The appellation represents 15 000 hectares and farms primarily S.795, SL9, and Cauvery varieties.

Specialty Coffee Caparaó - Brazil - Limited Edition - 8.8 oz. Whole Bean

The Caparaó terroir is located on the Caparaó Mountains in Minas Gerais, on the northeast side of Pico da Bandeira.
Known for its beautiful colonial towns, Minas Gerais boasts a wealth of geographical diversity, from mountains to great plains. It consists of several different regions, including Cerrado de Minas, Chapada, Sul de Minas and, most notably for specialty coffees, Matas de Minas.
Landscapes here are far from homogenous. Hills, narrow valleys, and ancient rocks come together to demonstrate a remarkable diversity of soils. Nor are the terroirs delimited by political borders: Caparaó extends over both Matas de Minas and Serra da Mantiqueira.
This region lives off of the production of sugar cane, corn, beans, and milk. Coffee, however, remains its primary agricultural product, with plantations covering 275 000 hectares of the northern region. Easy access by rail and highway facilitates the transportation of coffee to its port of embarkment.

In Caparaó, the push for sustainable production has had a noticeable impact. Plantations are most often family-run and 90% are mid-sized (around 10 hectares). Only 3% of producers possess farms larger than 100 hectares. This Brazilian region is therefore quite atypical, pioneering the production of speciality coffees with very different cup profiles.

Specialty Coffee Volcano - Limited Edition - 8.8 oz. Whole Bean

Guatemala:
Red Caturra is produced at the “Pampojila” plantation in Sololá, Guatemala. Planted not far from Atitlan volcano, the farm benefits from rich volcanic soil in the heart of a natural reserve – a considerable advantage when it comes to growing coffee trees.
After a devastating tropical storm in 2012, producer Alex Herrera was able to breathe new life into the plantations and launch sustainable, responsible, and socially viable production practices. Thanks to his raw passion and determination, he now owns a remarkable coffee plantation specializing in polyculture.
Today, throughout the plantation sitting at an altitude between 1470 and 1720 meters, 250 hectares are dedicated to growing Caturra coffee trees and another 250 hectares serve as a natural reserve.
In addition to producing coffee for over 100 years, Alex also organically farms macadamia nuts, honey, and quinine.

Rwanda:
The Coko terroir, birthplace of Mister Kong, is found in the northern province of Rwanda, in the district of Gakenke.
The northern province of Rwanda hosts a large coffee producing region where many washing stations were created. The area contains several thousand producers, each with a plot of land. The altitude above 1600m is ideal for the blossoming of coffee trees. Some native forests have been preserved and several treks are available around the Visoke volcano, offering a great opportunity for gorilla spotting.
