Grower (Pending)👯♀️ The sisters, Meli and Maria at La Angostura joined forces with their dad 7 years ago to help grow the family’s business. The one of the first to start in the region, the mill was started by their father, don Mario, with his “pure sweat” (borrowing his words). He believed in coffee’s power to lift his family economically and it did for a while. The sisters then joined a few years back to help their family combat the challenges that they were facing with the farming business back then- low market price, continually growing costs of production and lack of support. Meli says that she’s noticed that her dad was very stretched - as a producer, miller, and also expected to network, market and sell their product to sustain the business. Maria and Meli also tell us that one of the biggest challenges for them is to predict how much they can sell to whom, each year. Amidst the challenges, they are two of the most enthusiastic participants in our training sessions. They come with A LOT of questions to each training session.🤓🤓 Maria tells us that while she has been running the mill with her sister with the support of her dad who’s been a lifelong producer, it is important that she also gets the second/third opinion on their practices. “It’s not that I don’t trust my dad. (laughs). I just think there’s a value in continuously learning and updating your knowledge.” says Maria. These two girls with lots of innovative ideas and energy are ready to take their farm and mill to another level and we are so excited to accompany and witness them along with you all!!💪💪❤️
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.
