The coffee story
I've selected those because of their yield and their resistance to rust, but also because these varietals are excellent for micro-lot preparations.
My finca is fair trade as well as organic certified. You can find more information about the finca and about myself here:

I brought this coffee to Cafesmo for processing and preparation. For this coffee to be of consistent and good quality, it is important that we only pick the beans that are fully ripened. We call these beans 'bull's blood' because they need to have exactly that color, when they are no longer red, but closer to deep purple. It's at this point of ripeness that we can fully benefit from the sweetness of the fruit while drying the coffee. It's dried on plastic blankets on our patio because at 1,400 meters the heat is never too strong during the harvest season. This is of the utmost importance, to make sure that the fruit around the bean does not dry too fast. At night, we close the plastic blankets to make sure that the beans are preserved well and do not reabsorb humidity when it's dark. Depending on the weather, it takes 10 to 15 days to bring the humidity level to 11 - 12%, and at that point the beans are stored at the Cafesmo facilities, on pallets and never in direct contact with a wall. We only prepare the beans for export (green coffee) once they have been sold. This is the best way to preserve the typical qualities of a natural coffee: the fruitiness, often a bit 'winey', complex and strong flavors.

I’ve been cultivating coffee ever since i was little kid. My parents taught me and we still work our land together, with my brothers and sisters as well. We are very united as a family and always stick together, in good times as well as bad. I own 1,5 hectares of land where I grow coffee, and all of us together have around 12 hectares, between parents and siblings. However, it doesn’t much matter to who which parcel belongs, as we share the load and present our coffees as one. While we are going through a lot of hardship currently, we are also hopeful and we believe in a better tomorrow. Our real dream is to present micro-lots from our own land. Coffee that will allow us to obtain an even fairer price in the future, so that our children can stay in school and finish their secondary education. But most of all a coffee that we can be proud of, because of the joy that it will bring!
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.
