This coffee comes out of Chirinos, which lies in the Andes in Peru. Peru, with it's many mountains, is one of the best country to produce high quality specialty coffee. Churupampa has a social business model, instead of only looking out for themselves, the Tocto family helps more than 30 other farmers in the surrounding area, to improve their coffees and market it outside of Peru.
A coffee from one of the biggest coffee producing countries in the world: Brazil! This coffee is a blend of coffees from small farm holders. The blend is especially well balanced to produce wonderful espressos with it.
This wonderful floral coffee from Ethiopia, will open up a new coffee world for you. Ethiopia, being the origin of coffee (and humankind) still grows wild coffees (heirlooms) and hence produces coffees which cannot be found elsewhere in the world.
Another African country producing excellent coffee is Rwanda. Since this is a natural processed coffee, the coffee is dried in the coffee cherry. Because of this processing method, the bean takes on a more fruity taste. The perfect coffee for people who want to experience a new taste!

Patrice.Coffee is roasted in my small roastery in Beaufort!
No. I am not a big fan of big labels. That being said, some farmers I work with are certified organic. As a roaster though, I am not certified!
No. As noted about the organic label, I am quite the skeptic when it comes to labels.
The better alternative (in my opinion) is called direct trade. This way of trading goods eliminates a lot of the intermediaries, which leads to the farmer receiving more money in the end.
Since the start I am working hand in hand with This Side Up from Amsterdam, in order to import my coffees. Over the years we've become good friends and I trust them 100%. They give me insight into exactly how much the farmer earns for his/her coffee. This is how I can guarantee, that the farmers get at least double the Fairtrade mimimum price.
Of course! You can prepare any coffee with a bean-to-cup coffee maker, even if it is not noted on a bag of coffee. It's simply a marketing trick!
Nope. And this won't ever be the case! Capsules are a huge source of wast which I will not support that in any way.
