Vacuum packing has long been high on the priority list for us. Daterra was the first farm to do this. Our Kariaini coffee was vacuum packed in Kenya. We re-pack the coffees that arrive in jute-sacks ourselves, if we can’t have it done at origin. This is something we feel quite strongly about.
Now Edwin Martines of Finca Vista Hermosa has initiated the first vacuum packing of coffee in Guatemala. Way to go Edwin! And way to go whole team doing the hard work of weighing out, packing, vacuuming, sealing and boxing these coffees! Truly exciting.
You can see Edwin’s pictures of the process here.
