Ethiopie:

When we met Khalid, we could immediately see his strong connection to the land and to these coffee trees which he has cultivated. He inherited these plantations from his father, who had taken over from his own father. His grandfather went to the Choché forest, a few kilometres away, to find these wild coffee plants.

The family-run farm has grown around these first
... coffee trees and now extends over 35 hectares, in the Jimma appellation, at an altitude of 2100 m. It is situated in a rich environment with a biodiversity which Khalid is working to maintain. The farm has 31 African beds for drying coffee and 6 are reserved exclusively for the honey process.

The deep connection Khalid has to this land is demonstrated through the great care and attention that he pays to his farm and to the site's exceptional environment, and the efforts he makes to constantly improve the quality of his production. All this hard work has helped to refine the quality of the coffee produced here.


Colombie:

Originally from the Planadas and Gaitania terroirs, south of the Tolima region, this coffee is grown in a high altitude area very often covered by clouds. It is this special feature that gives it its name, since "Fábrica" comes from "Factory of clouds".

We fell in love with this coffee, which is part of a high altitude organic production (1600 - 2000 m). Fully washed then fermented, the coffee is produced from heritage varieties such as Bourbon, Typica, Caturra, Castillo and Colombia, which are very rare today. The main harvest takes place from May to June (70%) and the mid-crop (the "mitaca") is from October to January (30%). This coffee is produced by two cooperatives of indigenous coffee growers - more than 240 families from the NASA WE'SX community - in the Planadas and Gaitania terroirs. Every farmer owns about 2 to 4 hectares.

These terroirs are protected lands for these native peoples, and each hectare contains more than 6000 trees. They are the caretakers of one of the largest natural reserves in Colombia. This land and their beliefs, caring for Mother Earth, make them the best allies to produce one of the most delicious organic coffees in Colombia. They have joined forces to form several organisations of coffee producers in order to promote their coffee culture, safeguard income for their families and strengthen their community.


Honduras:

This coffee is cultivated in the San Marcos de Colón region, at an altitude of between 1200 and 1700 metres. Wapaia, which means "on the way" in the local language, was born from the passion of a former teacher who retrained as a coffee grower. This coffee, with its rounded notes of caramel and chocolate, is a blend of different varieties, hand-harvested then washed and dried on patios. It is certified organic and fair trade.
