Finca Quetanquira, Honduras

TASTING NOTES: Spices, chocolate and sweet berries with notes of rich dark chocolate and blackberries and floral finish.

Finca Quetanquira is located at the foot of the natural reserve MISOCO MOUNTAIN in the Department of Francisco Morazán (Honduras Central Zone) at an altitude of 1200-1450 meters above the sea level, grown under control shade with reforestation program of timber like: Mahogany, Cedar, Black Laurel, Granadillo and Walnut, among others.
The harvest season begins the last week of December and ending around the end of May. The harvest is done by picking the coffee cherry at the optimum ripeness stage and is processed on a period no longer than six hours after the picking.

Assefa Estate, Keffaa, Ethiopia

TASTING NOTES: Berry preserves, vanilla malt, and clove.

Assefa takes very seriously his responsibility and commitment to his employees. That is easily evident in the communities where he works and in his own coffee estate, spanning 100+ hectares. The health and joy that spring from the people in his community are largely benefits from Assefa’s direct investment in their lives, whether through micro finance opportunities for creative and entrepreneurial folks or by simply ensuring high standards of cleanliness in the workplace. It may seem insignificant, but think about the impact on one’s morale to be working in dirty, disorganized or unsafe environments. Every bit of the workplace is kept clean and organized, fostering an atmosphere of quality which absolutely reflects in the cup.  

When we were visiting Assefa and his community this sourcing season, Ethiopia was suffering a severe cash shortage. It is difficult for us to imagine what that is like, to have money in the bank, but to be unable to withdraw or spend any of it, due to a shortage of physical paper currency. Assefa, being well known and respected in communities throughout Ethiopia for his integrity and commitment to his people, was able to call on some friends from other coffee mills and borrow the necessary cash so that he could pay the people that labor at his farm and mill. This fundamental valuing of human dignity is exemplary. It is what we strive for in our own pursuits. This also demonstrates the dire need to contractually commit to coffees in Ethiopia, since foreign currency is vital to the economic well being of Ethiopia. We are utmost happy to be working with Assefa and his wonderful community.

These is an extremely special preparation lots. The harvesting protocols were detailed and the ripe cherries were still placed in a floating tank, in order to ensure quality. Once floaters were removed, the cherries were placed on slotted, raised drying beds and manually rotated for even drying, which took place over 12-16 days on average.
