For the past few weeks we've been keeping this very special coffee a secret because.... it's incredible and we were being selfish... That said we have a very limited amount of stock left and want to let you in on our little secret. Hope you enjoy!

We have been working with this association for two and a half years and we are impressed with the community programs. They have certified almost 100% of their members as organic. Also, the coop runs workshops at their labs every weekend for young people to learn how to cup. There is a huge desire among many young people in Planadas to learn this skill.
