Regular price $4.25

Description

The coffee is sourced from our direct trade partners in the Huila growing district. They are pre-screened at the co-operative buying warehouses through thorough cupping sessions. Campos Coffee is sent the top scoring coffees of the co-op. The coffee is then screened in our Campos Coffee quality control tasting sessions. Only the top Colombians scoring above the bar go into our Huila Del Monte AA. 20 cents from every kilogram we purchase from the co-operatives goes towards an education program in the region. The program educates and trains young Colombians on quality control in coffee to enable them to work in their industry and elevate the quality of the coffee in their region.

Kenya is always on our minds when we think of consistently excellent specialty coffee. We have released this line to be available all year round. It is the Roaster’s selection of whatever Kenyan is doing the best at representing quality Kenyan coffee in any given month. There will be grand cru micro-lot selections coming through from time to time, and these will have extra “bells and whistles” that set them apart, but the Tchakakhani is here for those who want a consistent, year round option.

The Baroida is back and better than ever! The farm is owned and operated by the industrious and benevolent Colbran Family. We first started working with the Colbrans back in 2009 and, being so close geographically, we have been able to visit them very regularly throughout the years. One of the many reasons we choose to work directly with Nichol and Chris Colbran is the huge role they play in improving the local infrastructure and supporting the surrounding community by providing local services including bridges, schools and roads. At Baroida Estate, Campos has funded an entire school building for 68 children. Now, rather than trekking for 2 hours every day to school, these children have access to excellent education right at their doorstep. This coffee is no better example of our ‘quality coffee cultivated by good’ philosophy. Not only does it taste incredibly delicious, but it’s bettering the lives of the communities which cultivated it.

Description

A perennial favourite at Campos Coffee, this release from the Rodriguez Ospina family is once again exceptional. The farm is located in the picturesque hills around Palestina, South Huila which happens to produce some of our favourite coffee out of Colombia. We first struck up a friendship with Linarco Rodriguez when we began working with him through a larger group of producers four years ago, and have since seen the quality of his coffee soar to even greater heights. We believe that with increased quality of the coffee, the farmer should receive an increase in price. This is just one of the ways we incentivise farmers to put in the hard yards to achieve exceptional quality coffee that have the unique characteristics of their region. Every bag of Rodriguez Ospina sold significantly contribute towards a Farmer Education Program called the PECA Project. ‘Progama de Educacion a Caficultores’ translated meaning ‘Program for Farmers Education’ is designed to educate farmers on how to consistently produce higher quality coffee along with providing tools to better manage the many challenges of coffee production.

Taste Notes

Bright, velvety and loaded with notes of black-forest cake, caramel and dried dates.

Description

Ethiopia is universally referred to as the birthplace of coffee and we last visited the Yirgacheffe region in February 2018 to taste first harvest selections. This espresso coffee has all the signature tastes of a fine coffee from the Yirgacheffe region. The Shifo Washing Station support a number of farmers whose crops are cultivated through subsistence farming with coffee grown in mineral-rich clay soil. The climate is ideal for Specialty Coffee cultivation as it’s both high in altitude, and high in yearly average rainfall. We measure our success not by our profit line, but by how much good we can do in the world. This is no more evident than in Ethiopia. Through our Suke Quto School project, up until now, 943 students have been learning in dusty, muddy and overcrowded rooms with one hole in the ground for a toilet. We are major supporters of the building of eight new classrooms including four proper toilets as well as coffee trees for the local community.

Description

Brewed using the husks of dried organic coffee cherries, cascara is a slightly fruity, medium-bodied beverage that tastes somewhere between a fine black tea and fruit tisane. But while it might be prepared and consumed like tea, it is technically coffee. Produced by the Helsar De Zarcero micro-mill in Costa Rica (a farm very close to our hearts), farmer Ricardo Barrantes and his daughters have worked to create a unique process of de-pulping and drying organic coffee. Unlike other cascara products on the market, the husks are dehydrated instead of sun dried. The result is a light, crispy shell, so crunchy you can eat as a snack. Considered a powerful superfood, cascara is rich in flavanols (a type of antioxidant best known for its support of the cardiovascular and nervous systems) and high in fibre. It’s also relatively low in caffeine compared to your average cup of coffee. Campos Cascara is organic, eco-friendly and comes from a place truly close to our hearts. Enjoy!

Description

Galapagos is not only home to birds, sea lions, iguanas, dolphins, and gulls, but also to the exotic coffee of La Tortuga. The Cooperativa de Cafetaleros de Galapagos, composed of more than 80 producers, started in 1997 with the purpose of protecting the coffee industry while conserving their nature and environment. All the farmers in Galapagos are very conscious of the animals and plants that inhabit the island. In fact, they consider themselves temporary inhabitants and strongly believe that the owners of the land are the animals and nature.

Description

This washed SL28 and SL34 variety from the Rungeto Farmers Cooperative Society has the well-known big and bold flavours that the Kirinyaga region is famous for and makes a delicious espresso. The farms in the Rungeto Farmers Cooperative Society were recognised after liquidation of the famous Ngiriama Cooperative Society. Soon after, Kiangoi, Karimikui and Kii joined hands to form the Rungeto Farmers Cooperative Society. The Rungeto Farmer’s society operates a dairy cooling plant and collects over 120,000 litres of milk a month and is a supplier to one of Kenya’s largest dairy product companies. This helps the farmers diversify their income base. Using Fairtrade premiums, the society has also set up a fuel station. The income allows the society to cover it’s overheads thereby increasing the farmers’ income. Our recent projects in Kenya have helped over 6,000 farmers and their families. New drying beds, upgrading washing tanks and even a tractor to transport beans, has helped farmers more than triple their earnings.
