Sweet and layered aromatics range from cardamom to spiced apple cider. An easy-drinker through and through. The cup pops with a sweet, pleasant nuttiness similar to macadamia nuts. The finish carries that fresh red apple cider taste making for an delicious coffee to crush mug after mug.
Our second offering from La Pradera! Elena, with her immense knowledge of specialty coffee in Colombia, introduced us to Hacienda La Pradera. From those first samples, we knew a longer term relationship was being born. Over the course of the last year, Dean at Ally Coffee Importers helped us develop that relationship.
Mildred Daza, owner with her husband Oscar of La Pradera, helps with administration and leads the women’s coffee project, Finca Santa Maria. A group of 22 women, all heads of their household, together operate the farm. We are proud to offer this delicious coffee for the next season!
The Castillo variety was grown at 1,800 meters above sea level and processed using the washed method.
Known for their rustic flavor profile, this offering from Sumatra hits those perfect Fall flavors. Earthy and full-bodied with allspice aromatics. The finish is saturated with brown sugar and cacao.
The Kopepi Ketiara Cooperative is located in the Gayo Highlands, district of Takengon and Bener Meriah, Central Aceh, Sumatra. All of the farms that contribute to the cooperative produce 100% shade-grown coffee. The average farm size is about 1.2 hectares per member, and a large percentage of members are women: This inspired the cooperative to form a kind of "junior" group, an affiliated association of women members whose coffees are kept separate and sold as Ipak Bensu.
