Tere Domine, Co-Founder and Country Director of Kalsada:
“The farmer lots are a mix of individually-processed coffees from farmers that we already have been working with and new farmers to work with continuously. Before Kalsada built mills and bought cherries from farmers in 2014, Kalsada started relationship with the community by purchasing their green beans, providing feedback on their quality, offering a better price than market price, and encouraging them to work with kalsada while mills were being built. For farmers, their primary objective was to sell their produce to whoever offers a good price and will consistently purchase their harvest year after year. For Kalsada, it was a good start to build the relationship with them by buying what they process themselves and offering options of selling their cherries to the mill in the succeeding years so they can focus on increasing their yield while we both work together in increasing quality.”
Our 12 oz bags are special ordered to sport a one-way valve to maintain maximum freshness! Removing as much air as possible from the bag will extend your coffee's shelf-life and preserve flavor.
