This microlot from Yader and Karen, the husband and wife team producing this coffee, are extremely meticulous with their harvesting and processing and it really shows. One of the most notable attributes of this coffee is it's distinct, articulated, and clean each note is despite dealing in a weightier flavor realm. It carries tremendous sweetness into each cup that is hard to put down. This was our first direct trade coffee and we are now in our third year buying from this family! So far the coffee keeps performing better each year and is one of my favorite coffees of the season.
This is no marketing gimmick. For every 12oz bag of Open Seas coffee you drink we are actually giving an average of 210 L of clean drinking water to real villagers in one of our source countries. That is over 35 days worth of potable water per bag. Through our 10-4Farmers Initiative we are investing 10% of our gross profits into sustainable water filtration systems for coffee farming communities and surrounding areas.
