Foundation, The coffees in this blend...
There are currently 3 producers that provide the coffees that make up our Foundation Blend.
First, we have coffee from the Esquipulas co-operative in Huehuetenango, Guatemala, which has conditions about as perfect as you can get for growing speciality coffee; a high altitude of over 1,500 MASL, fertile soil, and glorious sunshine. We’ve been working with the Esquipulas co-operative since 2009 and in that time they have grown, now working with more than 230 smallholder farmers.
Second, we have coffee from the Fero Co-operative in Ethiopia. They’re certified organic, using organic compost and no agrochemicals at all on the coffee. The co-operative is part of The Sidama Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union who helps to provide marketing, finance and technical services to 53 primary cooperative societies and over 80,000 farmers.
Third, we have coffee from Gajah Mountain on the island of Sumatra in Indonesia. The consistent weather conditions mean that Sumatra has almost a year-round harvest season, with fresh coffee available almost all year. We have been working in a specific micro-region Gajah Mountain and the farmers we work with are keen to let the world know they produce the best coffee.
