Not only was this Colombian coffee produced by young growers, it was also selected by the world's youngest Q grader, Frankie Volkema. The Joven / Sparrows team worked with the CAFINORTE cooperative in Colombia's Cauca region to compile this blend of lots, in collaboration with Coffee for Peace. In the cup, it tastes of rich milk chocolate, sweet citrus, and spring flowers. Even better, it specifically supports and celebrates the next generation of farmers in Colombia.
Not only was this coffee produced by young growers, it was also selected by the world's youngest Q grader, Frankie Volkema. Produced by a collective of seven young women entrepreneurs from the Ngozi region of Burundi, this coffee shines. The women from Ngozi pooled their savings to produce their first harvest and purchase a wet mill. They named their investment group Turihamwe, which means "together" in Kirundi. While these women have been in coffee farming for years, this is the group's FIRST EVER harvest. It's incredible.
