The Donna espresso blend is our take on creating a coffee that shares the unique terrior and characters made by the producers, but is also roasted to a level that helps create a high body and low acidity. We would not call it a dark roast, however, we would call it our darker roast. A crowd pleaser for those looking for something a little more traditional, but still sweet and without a roasted bitterness. We did this by bringing together two of the great producing countries of coffee and their signature profiles; Brazil with its chocolate and high body, and Colombia’s expressive sweetness.
Amecafe is an association of women coffee producers. In many of the coffee lands outside of perhaps Rwanda, the make-up of who is thought of as the coffee producers are largely male. This creates a misleading idea of who is producing the coffee we love as it is almost always a family business and almost always supported by women. These family businesses though, all fifty members are being led by women directing the production of the coffee.
Inza is another association of producers in Colombia. In the mountainous region of Cauca the smallholder farmers of only a couple hectares each tend their family farms. The farmers typically grow Colombia’s three major cultivars; Caturra, Colombia and Castillo. Alongside the signature cultivars, they each typically process their coffee on the farms in small micro-mills where the coffee is washed of its fruit and then dried.
