The coffee story



We are cousins, and both of us are 4th generation coffee farmers. Carlos started a wet mill years ago (he is a bit older), whereas Hidardo is the driving force behind Cafesmo.
 
Both of us are hard workers and we strive to diversify our income, because betting exclusively on coffee cultivation is too risky. This is why Carlos uses some of his land to herd cows, while Hidardo and his girlfriend started a coffeeshop a few years ago. 
 
Nevertheless, in our hearts of hearts, we are coffee farmers, and growing coffee is what we love to do more than anything. Individually, we focus on processes for micro-lots. Hidardo has a knack for natural lots, while Carlos often prefers to prepare anaerobic lots.
 
But we work together every day, and always put part of our harvest together. This allows us to mix two varieties and offer bigger volumes for washed lots, which roasters often like for their blends, their espressos. 
 
And because we always mix the same two varieties and use the same processes for drying, for preparation, we can make sure that our coffees are consistent and of high quality.

The process



When we have picked our beans, we will depulp and then dry the coffees on our patios for one or several days, depending on the amount of sunshine. After that, we will typically continue the drying process in our solar dryers, where we will rake the beans frequently to make sure they all dry at the same rhythm. Once we reach a humidity level of 11,5 to 12%, we will mix our two varieties together and blend our coffees into one lot.

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.
