Bolivia FTO Colonial Caranavi

$4.50 / per lb

Bolivia FTO Colonial Carana

These coffee farmers are known as “colonials”. During the 1950’s, wealthy and large land owners took over this region. They confiscated the properties from the natives, then enslaved the people  by forcing them to work for them. In 1991, through a governmental land reform, the larger landowners were made to relinquish their holdings of these small farms and return the rightful ownership back to the families who had originally owned them. These small farms still  surround the parameters of the large landowners, but they are no longer reliant on them for survival. They are independent and have title to their own land. They now have the freedom to search  for ways to improve their income, their own  lives, and the health of their community.

Java Organic Kayumas Taman Dadar

$4.60 / per lb

Java Organic Kayumas Taman Dadar GRAINPRO

Java Organic Kayumas Taman Dadar GRAINPRO is sourced from family-owned farms located near the villages of Curah Tatal and Kayumas on the island of Java, Indonesia. In the 17th Century Java coffee was first cultivated in low-lying areas, but by the late 19th Century coffee leaf rust had destroyed production, forcing new coffee cultivation into the highlands where high altitudes and volcanic soil provide perfect growing conditions. Smallholder organic coffee production is atypical of the region which is dominated by large government run coffee estates established by the Dutch in the 18th century.

Taman Dadar, meaning flower garden, aptly describes the way smallholder coffee is cultivated, colorfully inter-cropped with parkia beans, avocados, erythrina, albizia, and leucaena trees, which produce food for local consumption and shade. Java Taman Dadar is wet-hulled, a uniquely Indonesian processing method in which the coffee parchment is removed before the final drying is completed, producing a hallmark Indonesian flavor.
