The coffee story

We believe that to produce the best quality we must have a wide menu of varieties from our farm. We have already over 40 varieties. 
Marsellesa is part of our Sarchimor program that has the aim to get the best lines of this hybrid looking for the cup quality of Villa Sarchí and the resistance of the Timor.  

The process

When the brix content of the mucilage is optimal, we pick the ripe cherries from the plantations. Then at the mill the floaters are separated and the coffee is taken to the drying patios or raised beds to dry for 15-20 days

Interesting combination of candied orange and pip fruit in the cup, with mild acidity, citric-malic, quite supportive, and medium soft body. Well balanced.

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.
