Our Newest Coffees
We are excited to announce the arrival of our 5 newest coffees.
Zambia- One of these five coffees takes us to the continent of Africa, to the country of Zambia, to the north eastern part of the country. The Mafinga Hills in Zambia’s Northern Province are home to the country’s highest peaks where altitude and ancient volcanic soils help produce this RFA certified coffee. The natural process brings out very distinctive tropical fruit flavours in the cup.
Next we introduce the Organic Guatemala Atitlan.This coffee was cultivated near Lake Atitlan in Guatemala's highlands. This lot came from Cerro Lancandon Chochajau, a farm operation that cultivates over 33 hectares with 27 producers contributing to the farm.The lake is surrounded by 12 indigenous villages, inhabited by predominantly Kakchiquel and Tz’utujil. Its location at 1,600 Meters above sea level and proximity to the equator provides a year-round, spring-like climate. It is often called the “Land of Eternal Spring” for its exceptional weather.Traditional clothing is worn in the villages around the lake.There are 22 distinctive linguistic groups, not dialects but completely different languages that are spoken around the lake.
Thirdly we introduce our Colombia Buesaco - NarinoThis coffee is grown between altitudes of 1800 and 2200 meters above one sea level. After being picked, the coffee enters a fermentation process that last 28 to 36 hours. Then they are washed and dried on raised beds in the sun for 16 days.
