About this coffee;
Sourcing and roasting suitable coffees for milk base drinks creating a memorable experience when drinking Flat White and helping the professional barista and home coffee enthusiast to achieve better results when pouring latte art.
Working with seasonal coffees allows us to highlight the complexity of the flavours due to the terroir and origin and always committed to working towards long-term relationships with our farmers.
This special Mexico-washed lot was sourced from 40 women farmers in the community of Villa Corzo in La Concordia, Chiapas as part of Olam Speciality Coffee “Cafe Delas” project. We are delighted to introduce the very first Cafe Delas coffee sourced from Mexico and the first of many from outside Brazil.
La Concordia region is renowned for producing excellent coffee due to various factors such as the agroclimatic conditions of the area, altitude, soils, great diversity of natural interactions and of course, the people who through effort and care are able to produce the “Oro Verde” (green gold as it is called).
This region is also well known for its dry and rainy seasons, which are very well synchronized with the physiology of the coffee plant. During harvest season, the weather is cold with little rain which helps to extend the fermentation time and drying conditions, and as a consequence, improves the coffee cup quality. Variables such as climate behaviour, the endemic vegetation and fauna interaction (large cat species such as jaguar and birds such as quetzal among others) creates a top priority responsibility to enhance sustainable coexistence between coffee productive activities and conservation of this environment.
As a result of this coffee culture and endemic ecosystem interaction, it is possible to offer sustainable and high-end quality coffee to the world.
The small farmers in this region take an artisan approach to their production, taking their coffee from seed to dry parchment. The coffees are picked ripe, de-pulped and fermented for 12-17 hours. After the fermentation process, the coffee is then washed and sun-dried on farmers’ yards or zarandas in order to deliver the best qualities and high-end profiles required.
Café Delas was created to help women farmers access the resources, knowledge and voice they need to grow their operations to the fullest potential. Every Café Delas coffee is sourced 100% from women farmers and for every sale, a portion of the profit is reinvested in programs that promote gender equality and empower women in the field.
