This special coffee is grown through a ‘121 Project’ direct relationship with the farmer, in partnership with green coffee traders, D R Wakefield.

Norma Mileybi Lara began growing her coffee on a small piece of land given to her by her father. With just 1.4 hectares and a lot of training with a local co-operative, she put her heart and soul into producing this lovely coffee.

Only the ripe cherries are hand-picked prior to processing at the local co-operative. A wet processed coffee, all the pulp is used for organic fertilizer and the mucilage is used to combat the Roya leaf rust which has had a devastating effect on coffee production recently.

We roast the coffee light, giving a rich fruity peach and lychee flavour and gentle sweet acidity.

We love this coffee as a filter. We recommend 16g fine ground coffee per 250ml water.

Sustainability is a hugely important factor to us as a business and now, more generally in the wider coffee industry. The most important part of the entire coffee process is that the coffee farmers, their families and their communities all benefit from our relationships. Specifically, we work with farms that care for the local environment, and support both their workers and their families. This is the first and most crucial step in the process of producing exceptional coffee.
