About this Coffee:
Ethiopia - Colombia - Honduras
From the birthplace of Arabica in Anfilloo district’s Wallagga region, this organic washed coffee, sourced from wild coffee forests, offers the full abundance of flavours and aromas of a Grand Cru.
The coffee trees grow under natural forest shade, in large forests accessible only by foot due to the density of the trees and topography of the land. They join together small plots cul tivated by 35 small local producers delivering the “Moka Longberry” variety coffee cherries, carefully sought after for their soft aromas.
This exceptional terroir delivers a wonderfully unique cup thanks to the remarkable quality and richness of the soil and the variety and botanical diversity of the highland region.
Located in the south of Planadas, Tolima, on the foothills of the Andes mountain range, the Camilo Enciso association brings together more than 70 small organic producers with 3 to 4 hectares each.
The plantations, situated at altitudes between 1600 and 2000 meters, focus on old varieties (non-resistant to rust) such as Caturra, Bourbon, and Typica, which today is extremely rare.
The volcanic soil, paired with the temperate and humid climate of the country’s south-east, afford this 100% organic coffee rather unique qualities: fine notes of jasmine and fruity aromas of peach and blackcurrant.
Following strict organic agriculture practices, Honduras coffee is cultivated in La Paz in the municipality of Marcala, situated at 1200-1700m altitude. It is the product of many small producers, partnered within the COSMA cooperative (Café Organico Marcala). They work together to run their plantations following very strict environmental values. The approximately 700 small producers regularly receive training on a range of topics, from degustation to organic agriculture.
Coming from a family of peddlers from the Alsace region of France, Marc Bloch founded La Semeuse in 1900 , specialising in the import and distribution of groundnut oil.
It was only a few years later that La Semeuse diversified into the world of coffee roasting.
After the Second World War, they stopped importing oil and devoted all their energy and dynamism to importing, roasting and distributing coffee.
