Our second consignment from our Colombian Initiative trip last year docked in the port of Cork last in January!!!
This coffee represents a whole new direction for Badger and Dodo. In February 2018 we went to Colombia specifically to choose a coffee that we could bring back to Cork to offer our wholesale partners for use on a daily basis. We are delighted to say that “Salado Blanco” is the answer we were looking for. It wasn’t easy though. We cupped some 180 different coffees to narrow down the selection. Then we went to 3 farms to meet the farmers and get a better idea of what they are doing and their own initiatives. Going to origin allows us to sample a much wider choice of fresher coffees. It’s also very rewarding to meet the farmers and pay a higher premium that encourages investment and development into future years yields.
