About the blend
Dos Costas is a farmer’s coop located in Boa Esperança, in the south of Minas Gerais in the heart of the Brazilian coffee growing region. Originally founded in 1989 the Community Association of Costas set about seeking economic and social alternatives for themselves and their families to what was the norm at that time. They banded together to improve their position and in 2009 joined the Fairtrade scheme. Their mission statement was and is simple: “Working for sustainable development and welfare of cooperative members and their families, maintaining the continuous improvement of coffee quality, with operations in domestic and international markets.” The coffee itself is soft, nutty, with a low acidity, with nice bittersweet chocolate tastes.
The FT Colombian coffee comes from Asprotimana, a coop based in the district of Huila and includes 22 villages in the Timana, Elijah and Suaza areas. The cooperative’s name is derived from the Timanaes tribe that originally inhabited the region. Coffee is the main crop, grown on an area of approximately 250 hectares. This coffee exudes rich notes of dark chocolate, blackcurrant and citrus peel, with a full body and clean sweet finish.
Mexico produces an average of 4 million bags of green coffee. It is one of the few countries that can produce both an Arabica and Robusta crop each year. The coffee produced is mainly found on the slopes of the mountain ranges in the Centre and South of the country. All these are strategic areas for the conservation of biodiversity. Our FT Robusta coffee is sourced from a number of small holders based in Chiapas which is one of the main producers of certified coffee in the world. Its climate, volcanic soil, rainfall and the warmth of its people make Chiapas an ideal place to get the best coffee.
