Produced together withAlexander Vargas
Harvest calendarSeptember - December
In 2009, Alexander Vargas transformed Finca La Piragua from basic land into its current state, featuring a residence, a coffee processing area, micro-beneficio fermentation tanks, and drying space.
Collaborating with local families and his wife, Lidia, they established a small school, showcasing his commitment to community development.
Alexander is always seeking ways to improve his work on the farm and innovating processing methods. He now uses fermentation barrels for efficiency and cleanliness, fermenting for up to 48 hours with meticulous rinsing and methodical drying. Alexander is responsible for coffee tree harvesting, and together with Lidia, they oversee the fermentation and drying processes.
We work by the values of transparent trade. This helps create a healthy relationship with the farmer and financial sustainability for them.
We pay a quality bonus to Alexander Vargas that is 247% above market price ($6.50/lb FOB). The quality bonus allows the farmer to continue to produce higher quality coffee.
Depending on your brewing method at home, from Aeropress, to Kalita or French press, we help you getting the best taste out of your coffee.
