Grower (Pending)Leida spent her childhood on her father’s organic coffee farm. Her father had the passion and pride to sustain his farm organically and believed that when soils and the environment are treated well, the coffee will grow well too. However, a significant drop of the yield coupled with price crisis and invasive pests, caused her father to abandon coffee production, eventually passing the farm to Leida. She later revived the coffee production tradition but has been unable to revive her father’s organic methods. Her plot is a little bit over 1 hectare and a small invasive matter can have a large impact. The ‘Roya’ (the leaf-rust disease) has been one that has affected her coffee farm for years. To fight it, she has explored various sustainable production options, however, she has been having challenges controlling it entirely with organic fertilizers. The challenge hasn’t meant that she would give up. To date, she continues to produce a small quantity of coffee that she currently has. And she hopes to gradually but surely introduce and implement more sustainable practices on her farm - starting with vermicomposting and natural fertilizers. She graduated from our program in 2018. Soon after graduating, she launched her own baked goods brand “Sé Café” that sells cookies and baked goods made with coffee! She hopes to create alternative income sources to continue fueling her dream.
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.
When calculating price, you can select your preferred currency: USD, CHF, EUR, or GBP.
