Our Brazilian coffee comes from Minas Gerais region in South-Eastern Brazil, more specifically, the town Carmo de Minas, with a long-standing history in the production of gourmet coffee, since the city consists primarily of coffee farmers. ASCARIVE was established in 2008 with the aim of producing gourmet coffee under proper conditions that allow small farmers to increase their income, while recognizing and preserving the quality of the products, ensuring production based on ethical standards, and cherishing the environment.
Our Colombian coffee is from EL PORVENIR, a farm in the Huila region in South-Western Colombia. Founded by Rubiangel Pena Espana in 1990, the farm has a long-standing commitment to sustainability and to ensuring good living and working standards for the farmers in the area. For the same reason, Rubiangel became one of the founders of ASPROCUBARRAL, as well as a board member of the Cooperative of Coffee Growers of Meta, in which both of these organizations work in sustainable ways.
The cooperative COCAFCAL is located in Las Capucas, in the Copan region of Western Honduras. The cooperative was founded in 1999 as one of the first registered coffee cooperatives of Honduras. Since its establishment, Chairman Omar Rodriguez and the other members have worked hard with a special goal in mind: to raise the quality of coffee grown in the area, and thereby, the living conditions of the farmers. For this reason, they receive more than 700 members of the cooperative each year, including training in all aspects of coffee growing, quality assurance, organic farming, certifications and more.
The particularity of our Kenya coffee is that it is 100% “peaberry”. Normally, in a coffee berry there are two so-called ‘flat beans’, but a “peaberry” contains only one bean within its berry – small and round, just like a pea.Our coffee comes from the North-Eastern part of Nyeri, right at the foot of Mount Kenya, where we find the cooperatives RUMUKIA and KABARE. Together, the cooperatives have 19 washing stations for which their members supplement coffee, before it is sent for drying.
In the region of Madriz, in Northern Nicaragua, near the border with Honduras, we find the PROCAFE cooperative. PROCAFE was founded in 2011 by 32 small coffee farmers and neighbours. None of the 32 coffee farms is larger than 3.5 hectares each – and small farms such as these would rarely make their way onto the international specialty coffee market, to ensure proper conditions and wages for the farmers. However, by joining forces, the PROCAFE coffee farms have achieved strong goals– good working conditions, free schooling for the farmer’s children, all while meeting ecological and Fairtrade standards.
Our coffee beans from Peru come from Cajamarca – an area in the Andes Mountains, in North-Western Peru. COOPAFSI cooperative, ever since its establishment in 1969, has had one particular mission – achieving equality in the coffee industry. The cooperative has a unique approach to the role of women in coffee farms, ensuring their participation not only in the manual fields of labour, such as picking and planting, but also in the quality control of the finished coffee- both in terms of physical and sensory assessments.
The city of Antigua, the headquarters of De La Gente cooperative, is located in the central highlands of Guatemala. Here, at the conjunction of three volcanoes, there are the perfect farmland conditions for growing high-quality coffee. In fact, the conditions are so favourable that the coffee beans produced are labeled SHB, which stands for ‘Strictly Hard Bean’. In order to achieve this denomination, coffee most grow high and at a relatively low temperature, which makes the growth slow, enabling the hardening and compacting of the bean compared to other strains – difference that many believe you can also taste.
Al Arabica coffee is said to have its origins in the mountains of Ethiopia. Legend has it that a young goat herder, Kaldi, observed one day that his goats started behaving strangely. After eating berries from an unknown tree, the oldest goat started jumping and dancing frantically. A monk passed on the story, generation to generation, and many hundreds of years later, to this day, the enchanted tale of Kaldi and his lively goats still makes one think of the enchanted tree believed to have been the Coffee Tree of origin.
