Why we love it: The Farmers Project blend from the Central Valley of Costa Rica is one of our favorite espresso level coffees and this year's lot is excellent. The coffee is extremely sweet across all roast levels, displaying notes of praline, mandarin orange, brown sugar, molasses, and bittersweet chocolate. In addition to being a great coffee for batch brew and pour over, we think this coffee really shines as a creamy and bittersweet shot of espresso.
Farm story: Farmers Project was founded by Jonathan Jost and Marianella Baez Jost of Café Con Amor. When they gave up their corporate jobs to follow their passion as coffee farmers in Costa Rica, they were struck by how hard local farmers worked, only to sell their coffee for prices that could not sustain the most basic lifestyle. The Farmers Project was started to help local farmers in Costa Rica sell their coffee for a fair price to support their workers, their farms, and their families. Sharing this vision, the five farms that make up this group share knowledge and learnings with one another and export their specialty coffee together. This blend represents their collective efforts towards a sustainable and equitable future.
Impact: This blend is imported directly from the Farmers Project group and consists of coffees from the following farms: Cafe con Amor, Zalmari Estate, El Greco, Familia Fernandez, and Sircof. Their mission is “to cultivate quality coffee using sustainable practices and to establish long-term relationships with buying partners who believe in doing business with integrity and fairness in mind.
