Brazil-Natural Fazenda Santa Ines- Yellow Bourbon


(Picture provided by Café Imports)

Region: Carmo de Minas, Minas Gerais

Farm: Fazenda Santa Ines

Altitude: 900-1050 masl

Processing Method: Natural

Cupping Notes provided by Café Imports: "Peanut, almond, chocolate and tart."

Coffee growing in Carmo de Minas has been the business of the Pereira family since 1979. When the family started managing the 215 ha. farmland at Fazenda Santa Ines, it was already planted in coffee, but they opted on planting new varieties and updating the work model in order to improve quality and productivity. At the time the family took over management at Santa Ines, the Carmo de Minas region was experiencing problems with quality. The family hired experts to help improve quality, they introduced new harvesting/processing techniques, and they also implemented the newest farm technology available. Immediately the coffees from Santa Ines began to stand out in regional and national contests, establishing a reputation of quality amongst the specialty coffee market.

In 2005, a sample from Fazenda Santa Ines won first place in Cup of Excellence Brazil, with a world record 95.85 score.

Columbia- Huila- EP Gran Galope

Region: Hulia

Farm: Various small holder farmers

Processing Method: Washed

Cupping notes provided by Café Importers: "Dark chocolate, lemongrass and nutmeg flavor, sweet and citric with a creamy mouthfeel."

This is not your Juan Valdez. The chocolate tones makes this coffee a fan favorite and an all around great tasting, everyday coffee.

In an effort to be a better partner to our coffee-farming friends in the South of Colombia by buying more of their fine coffee and paying a premium better than they can find in the local market, we are strengthening our relationships while simultaneously introducing a product to Specialty Coffee roasters that is solid, flexible and relatively inexpensive. This is a win-win for producers and roasters, and ultimately the consumer.

The average coffee farmer in Cauca, Huila, and Nariño has about 1.5 hectares of coffee land and will produce about 50 bags of coffee per harvest. During the few months of harvest season, he or she will bring to town on a Saturday 10 or so bags of pergamino, or parchment coffee, to sell. We pay a premium based on cup scores. Higher score equals higher premium: 90 points is over 4 times market value. Above 88 points means a microlot premium, and 86 points equals our Regional Select premium.

Before Gran Galope, the other coffees, anything below 86 (that's where most of the coffee lies), received the FNC price or the posted street price. In today's market of about $1.20, this standard price is simply an unfortunate break-even price for an entire year's worth of what we all know is hard, committed, and disciplined work.

Costa Rica-Cafe Vida

Processing Method: Fully Washed

Cafe Vida is a all around great coffee, capturing the classic characteristics of a washed Costa Rican coffee, suitable for both blending and as an accessible single-origin offering. Café Vida is perfect for any occasion and goes well with anything. Cafe Vidais sourced based on quality and profile, and carries limited or no traceability.

Ethiopia Yirgacheffee


Region: Yirgacheffee

Processing Method: Natural

Ethiopia is said to be the birth place of coffee. That is what makes Ethiopian coffee so great, the complete mix of varietals. It is estimated that somewhere between six thousand and ten thousand varieties exist naturally in these highlands, the origin of coffee - The cross pollination of genetics is totally amazing. For those that enjoy a more robust flavor, this is the coffee for you.

Kenya- Kichwa Tembo

Processing Method: Washed

Cupping notes from Café Imports: "Sugary sweet with tangy acidity and a smooth mouthfeel; lots of lemon and grapefruit flavors with red grape, graham and a nutty aftertaste."

"Kichwa Tembo" means "elephant head" in Swahili, and, for Café Imports, the mark represents the strength in these cups. Our Kichwa Tembo coffees represent a classic, hardworking Kenyan profile: Sweet tropical fruit balanced by complex savory elements of herb and tomato, and a creamy body.

We strive to offer high-quality Kichwa Tembo coffees in addition to our more traceable Kenyan microlots and factory-specific lots (washing stations are often called "factories" in Kenya).
