*For subscribers please note that we expect this coffee to run until Q4 2021, after which we will replace it with a fresh crop Peruvian, or a Guatemalan. Either one will be hand picked by us and traded directly by the full container into Port of Cork.

Valle Verde is a communal producer blend made up of coffee from small producers of the Valle Verde Cooperative

 

A typical farmer within this program will have just above 2 hectares on average, planted with coffee. They are organic certified. The equipment can be extremely simple, but coffees can still be amazing. Some have their own parabolic dryers, others dry on plastic outside their farms, or use a drying facility at their neighbour or relatives place. 

 

The farms are family operations and everyone will normally contribute. A few might have employed pickers in the harvesting season, but the farmers and family members also help each other picking coffee in the harvesting season. They have something called “Mingas” that means today for you, tomorrow for me. They will try to pick in passes according to when they have enough ripe cherries on the trees.

 

After harvesting they will pulp and ferment the coffees in their micro mills at the farms. It’s normally a small pulper and a wooden or concrete fermentation tank but many are also fermenting in bags.
