We are excited to announce our exclusive special limited reserve “Para Ela” micro-lots, that are 100% women selected. These coffees are very near and dear to our hearts because they were carefully selected and sorted with love by the women of Our Coffees.
“Para Ela”, which translates "For Her" is our representation to the world of what we can achieve through the power of coffee. During the 4 month hand selection and sorting season, to financially empower the women of Campos Altos and shine a light on the financial disparity occurring in the country, we decided to take action and dedicate the entire hand selection and micro lot production to be harvested only by women. During the hand selection season, our pickers earned 50% higher wages than the regional average, and employee household incomes increased by 85% during the picking season as a direct result of the Para Elas production. The ripest and most pristine cherries were carefully hand selected and sorted with love exclusively and only by the women of Campos Altos.
This lot is a showcase of our natural processed Yellow Bourbon dried on our newly built African raised drying beds. The goal behind this collection was to cultivate and process a coffee that not only preserved the prestige of this varietal, but excite roasters with its flavor dynamic and full body component to excel as a single origin espresso or filter coffee.
