PLUM. CHOCOLATE SYRUP. SHERRY.
When I got an email from our importers in Portland asking if we wanted to be the only roaster in the world to receive this small lot of not only woman grown, but 100% female supply chain coffee, my answer was of course “Yes Please!!”
This coffee is from a long standing partner of our importer, Sustainable Harvest. It comes from Federacion Campesina del Cauca (FCC) in Popayan, Colombia.
Sustainable Harvest’s quality control manager, Yimara, grew up in Popayan and her parents are producers who sell their coffee to FCC. Before joining Sustainable, Yimara was the lab manager for FCC. This specific lot is 3 bags of a certified organic, natural processed coffee from producer Liliana Lozano, who runs an amazing and innovative farm.
Apart from being a woman-grown coffee, what makes this coffee unique is that every person managing the export/import/roasting of this coffee is also a woman: the cupper at FCC, our export contact, the supply manager in Colombia, the cuppers in Portland, the sales reps, our roaster etc. We thought this would be an awesome opportunity to share these women’s amazing coffee and craftsmanship with you! And on top of that, it’s freaking delicious!
