ABOUT FRANCISCO VINTIMILLA

This is both a newer farm and a newer producer. Francisco currently has only 3 hectares (~7 acres) planted. 6,000 of his trees are approximately 5 years old, and the other 2,200 trees are 18 months old. The potential of this farm is incredible, and we expect the coffee to continue improving as the trees mature. Francisco is currently planning to plant an additional 5 hectares (~12 acres) of different, high-quality varieties, which makes us even more excited for the future of this farm. 

 

ABOUT MEJORADO

Mejorado is a very unique varieity mainly grown in Ecuador. Though it is commonly misnamed Typica Mejorado, we now know—due to genetic testing by World Coffee Reseach—that it is actually a Bourbon variety cross-pollinated with an Ethiopian Landrace variety.

The cost of getting a coffee from cherry to beverage varies enormously depending on its place of origin and the location of its consumption. The inclusion of price transparency is a starting point to inform broader conversation around the true costs of production and the sustainability of specialty coffee as a whole.
