Honduras + Laos + Rwanda
Being a female-owned company, we love to empower female and otherwise marginalized coffee producers. Supporting the expansion of female coffee producers and getting them equal access to professional development is Hi Hope™ Honduras. Grown primarily on small lots ranging from 1200-1700msl, this washed coffee is known for its mild, nutty flavors of toffee, almond and citrus. All these coffees support women producers and their growth in the coffee world.
Laos is part of the International Multi-location Variety Trial, which is led by World Coffee Research (WCR). In the project, 35 varieties of coffee are collected from around the world and then planted in over 60 test plots in 23 countries, resulting in widespread production and quality increases in as little as 5 years. UTZ, Rainforest Allicance Creche for children of the workers, dental care, education, healthcare, gender equality and building community infrastructure, this coffee does good and tastes amazing. Strictly high grown, boasting SJ-33, catigua, TN01, Obata, Java, Typica, Bourbon and Geisha varietals, and a variety of processing methods, this single-origin shares qualities of the best of blends (and pulls an awesome shot of espresso). Medium-full body, excellent balance, and flavor notes of citrus, subtle floral notes, and summer fruits will delight and surprise the palate.
The Fair Trade Cooperative of COOPAC-KODUKAK is committed to social sustainability—Creating communities that are balanced through education and healthcare. From the volcanic mountains near Lake Kivu in Rwanda, they are making a commitment to the people and their communities. Not only are they helping farmers produce superior coffee, they are ensuring that local educational and health systems are improved. From the construction of schools to health clinics, COOPAC-KODUKAK is working with farmers and their families, improving local infrastructure through building bridges and roads. Bringing new production methods through agricultural advisors, we are excited to deliver a locally roasted coffee that is balanced with flavors of brown sugar, apple and green grapes.
My purchase was a gift basket for a coffee lover. It was perfect! There were so many options in the store. This one worked beautifully.
Highly recommend Coroco for gifts!
