This is an April project.
Buying small micro-lots from a farmer does not create a sustainable value chain. If you were to speak with the majority of producers, they would tell you that the real value is generated from stronger and wider partnerships, those that continuously purchase a larger and more diverse selection of coffees from them.
The project is about One Farmer, One Roaster and One Coffee with the aim to create the perfect House Coffee.
The Coffee will be roasted with the same attention to detail that we have always had at April, using a Loring 15kg Falcon Roast Machine. The result is a coffee in which the focus is on sweetness, the body as well as clear flavour notes of chocolate and fruit. Roasted one way, brewed your way.
Available for Wholesale:
The Coffee comes exclusively from Alejo Castro and his farm Volcan Azul in Costa Rica.
Roasted in one way, 12kg batches using a Loring 15kg Falcon Roast Machine.
Available to order for Coffee Shops, Restaurants and Hotels. Minimum order is 10kg (you order in steps of 10, 20... 30... 40...)
Medium Roasted to fit the brewing method of your choice
- The larger size lot enables a lower buying price than the micro-lots we normally buy. And together with the farmer, we have decided on a price that is Sustainable for him and us. We are paying €6/kg, which goes directly to the farmer excl. tax, importing cost, shipping, production, and weight loss (from roasting) that we pay in addition.
