When a bag of Collective Cup is opened, the sweet scent of chocolate, sugar cane, plum and raisins deliciously waft out. This blend offers a smooth, rich flavour that energizes as it coats tastebuds.
Collective Cup comes from Calera farm, which belongs to seven brothers. The coffee trees thrive among tall pine tree forests and the farm is blessed with a specific cool climate providing optimal conditions for coffee production. This blend is washed processed coffee – after the harvest, the outer skin and fruit flesh are washed away and the coffee is then spread on patios where they dry in about 10 days.
Calera extends through a mountain facing Trifinio biosphere reserve where the borders of El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras meet. The farm is a true ecological sanctuary for preserving biodiversity, with approximately 300 bird species. During the picking season, Calera provides work for as many as 200 locals with fair wages and benefits.
