Central & South America
Although our primary focus is related around African coffees, we have still developed some amazing relationships over the years with American Producers. Please double check our offerings list as this will confirm our current Central & South American offerings as these change on a regular basis.
We have been working with Ben and the Gold mountain team since 2017. We have a strong relationship with Gold mountain and over two seasons we got some amazing coffees from Nicaragua and Columbia Gold Mountain projects.
Gold Mountain strive to constantly advance their relationships with the farmers they deal with and upskill them to produce even better coffee!
We love the way we are also able to interact with the farmers and producers of Gold Mountain and look forward to future endeavors and coffee adventures with them. 2018 was a great year with Gold mountain as we brought in an amazing honey processed coffee that we also featured in the ‘Shot in the Dark’ competition.
Mexico is 8th largest coffee-producing countries in the world, and the largest producer of organic coffee, accounting for 60% of world production in 2000. The vast majority of Mexican coffee, and particularly organic coffee, is grown by small farmers in the southern-most states of Chiapas and Oaxaca.
The coffee is mainly arabica, which grows particularly well in the coastal region of Soconusco, Chiapas, near the border of Guatemala.
We have not had a relationship with Mexican coffee for very long and this far we have only purchased the Mexican El Tucan Mountain water Decaf coffee. Mexico is very proud in heritage and their coffee culture world-wide is thriving. Let’s see what the future holds.
Coffee in Guatemala is grown at an altitude of over 5,000 feet, which explains its robust and distinctive flavour. Guatemala’s unique growing region, with a mild subtropical climate and combined with nutrient-rich volcanic soil.
Gautemala is one of the top 5 coffee producers in the world and we do love and appreciate the occasional coffee we get from there. Time to time we get the occasional micro-lot from Gautemala and we are more then happy to contract in the odd bag for the decerning client.
South and Central American coffees are not our primary focus but we do love the relationships we have developed and we will continue to grow, provide and cultivate a deeper relationship their. We are planning a massive trip to central America in 2021, so let’s see what the future holds.
