Around late Summer and early Fall, fresh-crop coffees from Central America start making their appearance. For the fourth year now, we have had the privilege of bringing in coffees from the amazing farmers group, Gold Mountain Coffee Growers. The group was founded in 2002 by Benjamin Weiner. While working on a thesis paper dealing with the economics of coffee growing in Nicaragua, he decided to purchase a farm and join a cooperative. Shortly after joining the co-op, he became aware that farmers needed a more direct way to reach out to roasters and gain the needed profitability to have a successful coffee business. From that recognized need, Gold Mountain Coffee Growers was born. The group has since grown and developed into a social enterprise that connects farmers and coffee roasters while implementing a rigorous quality control program and a transparency which ensures prices for farmers that allow them to earn a livable wage through high quality coffee.
We are really excited about this year's harvest, and will have a few lots from Gold Mountain coming out this year. The first is from El Divino Niño Farm. The farmers, Josefina and Mario, have lived on their plot of the mountain since 1985 alongside a small waterfall that never dries up. Gold Mountain Coffee Growers fondly nicknamed the coffee from their farm the “Yellow Peach.” Because of its remote location, the coffee has to be carried off the farm by horseback. Although challenging to get, it’s well worth it for the unique flavor. We get notes of papaya, mango, and nectarine with a hint of rosewater - providing a cup that is overall tangy and nectary! This is an exceptional washed coffee that is a real gem to find!
All coffees are available in whole bean only.
