Get your hands on the latest deliciousness from Viviana Realpe!
Whereas we last featured an espresso roast of her pink bourbon, this lot (a January purchase) is a stunningly sweet and generous caturra, roasted for filter brewing.
27-year-old Viviana is a member of Los Guácharos, a group of independent, quality-focused small producers who are collectively converting to organic agriculture.
We’ve been purchasing from Viviana for four years, and this is the first of her coffees to be released as a single farm micro-lot. Needless to say we’re excited, and you can expect to see her name around here a lot more over the next few years.
We actively seek to purchase from women because they are often marginalised in the industry, with less access to credit, information and training at origin than men. We’re stoked to see Viviana farming on her land and her terms, with outstanding results.
We paid $1.75 million pesos per carga for Viviana’s coffee. To give context this is the link to the current market rate in Colombia for producers delivering parchment to their local Co-Op, it’s updated daily https://www.federaciondecafeteros.org/static/files/precio_cafe.pdf
