The coffee story

Carefully cultivated by a group of 15 farmer friends and family members, who live in one of our highest and most remote zones. Alexy, Arling and Benjamín Rivera are a few of the names that come to mind. In the remote El Pinal zone, we all work together, care for each other's children when one of us needs to go to town, and we form a tight knit group of dedicated, well versed coffee farmers. While each of us has their own finca, and while we each prepare micro-lots, we also put some of our coffees together, to offer a bigger lot that offers the same traits and traceability as our micro-lots.

The process

Each of us picks their own coffees from their individual finca. We then blend these beans together and depulp together as well, after which the beans are washed in our wet mill. We have a patio and on which we dry some of our beans and Cafesmo has also donated a few solar dryers, which we use for our micro-lots. However, for this El Pinal Premium blend, we will typically bring the beans to Cafesmo, to be dried on the much bigger patio there. In Cafesmo, the bags will also be weighed, the Q-Grader will do a physical and sensorial quality control, and once the beans have been dried to 11% humidity, prepared, and approved, they will be stored until they are sold for export purposes. All our fincas and all our coffees are Fair Trade as well as Organic certified.

Led by young growers. Quality & traceability

We, the 250+ members who together form Cafesmo, have formalized our cooperation in 2016. Our individual fincas are relatively small, most of them ranging from 2 to 12 hectares. All our fincas are FTO certified and we offer an array of specialty profiles. Our region - Ocotepeque - is known for its rich soil and perfect altitude range to grow unique, richly flavored coffees. We are convinced that Mercedes and Ocotepeque will continue to gain in fame over the next few years, and deservedly so. Most of our finca’s are located between 1,200 and 1,600 meters. Thanks to a varied topography, we have a long harvest season, that starts late October and lasts until March. Varieties include Pacas, Lempira, Parainema, Catuaí, Obatá, Colombia, IHCAFE90… We have young people as well as less young members, women and men, someone who is a microbiologist, and one who has been an elementary school teacher. Together, we stand for ‘diversity and quality’, together we stand strong

FAQ


Shipping
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.

Currencies
When calculating price, you can select your preferred currency: USD, CHF, EUR, or GBP.

2 payment methods are accepted on Algrano:

1. Buy now, pay later
Pay your coffee after its delivered in Europe. This option generates an additional fee, displayed in the shopping cart.

3. Pay 10 days after placing the order
We will send you a 10 day invoice straight after you placed your order.
