She is the leader of E&F, which is an artisanal coffee farm producing deliciously high quality coffee located 1,600 meters above sea level in San Marcos, Costa Rica. However, things weren't always this way for Ericka. After being treated with a bone tumor in 2015, Ericka and her family considered selling their land to pay for her medical costs. They were earning less than $5 per kg of coffee, which could barely pay for her treatment, let alone the costs of managing a coffee farm. After partnering with Bean Voyage, Ericka is able to process her own coffee, and sell to a global market. She went from producing pre-commercial coffee cherries to roast-ready coffee beans by participating in skills-based training with Bean Voyage earning up to 3x more than what she earned from the commercial market. This means that she is able to capitalize on her coffee while getting proper rehabilitation and care for herself and her family. Ericka lives with her husband, Ruben, who does the farming, and three daughters, all of whom play crucial roles from helping process the coffee to keeping the books. Together, they hope to support Ericka run one of the finest artisanal coffee farms in Costa Rica. --- We've worked with Ericka and her family since 2016 and saw her coffee score improve from 82 in 2017 to 84, then to 85-86.5 this year! She and her family put diligence and hard work at the core of their work and it's so clearly shown in all her coffees! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KsyuzraxbRA|
Once the ordering period ends we will consolidate all coffees in a shared container. During transport, your coffee is fully insured. We will keep you informed about the shipment status.
Upon arrival of the coffee at the warehouse, you can choose between 2 delivery modes:
- Doorstep delivery: We will take care of transport to your roastery. We will provide your coffee fully insured until it is ready for unloading from the truck at your roastery.
- EXW (ex. warehouse) means that we will provide the coffee ready for pick-up at the terminal of the warehouse. You are responsible for organising transport and insurance from the warehouse to your roastery.
Currently, we can deliver coffee anywhere in Europe, except Hungary. For all European buyers, the coffee will be provided custom cleared in any case. Roasters in Switzerland choosing EXW will be responsible for customs clearance.
