The Primavera Family lot was created from 16 great producers that are improving their quality, but this year were not strong enough to stand on their own. We decided to purchase the coffee in order to give them an opportunity to use the extra income they receive from selling at a higher price to reinvest in their farm and wet mills. We hope that with some improvements and betterments, next year they will produce wonderful coffees that could be featured as single origin coffees.
We are constantly working with our producers in order to help them improve the quality and therefore price of their coffees.
For this lot, we purchased coffees of 84 and 85 points to create a great quality, affordable blend.
This regional lot is different from anything else you will see in the market as it has full transparency and trasability to each producer.
