STORYarticle-shape

Our Colombia La Unión Nariño AA has a sweet aroma this coffee is perfectly balanced with a sweet body. With flavor notes of stone fruit apricot, sweet creamy caramel and lavender. With undertones of chocolate, persimmon, floral, and honey.

Coffee cultivation on small family-owned farms is the backbone of production in Colombia. Banexport, a Colombian export company, works directly with many of these producers who have a shared commitment for exquisite coffee processing, and loving care for their farms and the environment. Banexport helps producers gain access to technical support regarding best practices for farm management, processing the harvest, and cupping feedback, which helps producers improve the quality of their coffee. The model of collaborative effort produces traceable community blends with vibrant regional profiles.

This lot comes from 20 producers with small farms in the municipality of La Unión within the department of Nariño. Each producer has their own micro-mill where they carefully harvest cherries, depulp, ferment, wash and gently dry the parchment on raised beds. While individual producers have designed farm management and post-harvest solutions to fit their needs, the strong alliance with Banexport provides crucial logistical support for things like warehousing and milling coffee for export to the international market, which provides better income for everyone to re-invest in their farms and strengthen their families’ livelihoods.

Klatch Coffee Roasting is committed to working with coffee farmers

who are true artisans of coffee cultivation and practice their craft with a dedication, passion and skill. Klatch works with, and offers their support to, these skilled producers for the sole purpose of presenting only the highest-quality artisan roasted coffee...

Mike Perry believes there are a number of critical factors contributing to the growth of a truly exceptional coffee, and that farmers are one of the key factors. Therefore he believes those who do the best work should get the best price; he does not believe in coffee subsidies.

Klatch Coffee believes working with these farmers to deliver the highest-quality coffees requires that they listen, learn, cup, and give feedback in their creation...

Mike believes that a coffee farmer who grows an award-winning coffee is an artisan and should be given his due. Recognition develops dedication to craftsmanship, skill for production and passion for the harvest quality.

Klatch Coffee Roasting believes that great artisan roasted coffee is inherently produced through sustainable methods. They therefore only work with farmers who think long and hard about economic, social, and environmental conditions of their farms and communities. Sustainable does not have to mean organic, but it certainly could.

Klatch seeks to deliver the highest possible return to farmers and therefore require their importers, exporters, cooperatives and farmers to agree upon the financial distribution prior to harvest and act transparently in the execution of distribution, allowing Klatch Coffee to monitor the committed delivery price to the farmers.
