Brazil Nut, Cane Sugar, Cola
42 Small-scale Farmers
Washed & Sun-dried
Most of the residents of Monserrate and the surrounding communities are small-scale, cash crop farmers. Several years ago, in an effort to improve their crop become more profitable, a group of them formed their own cooperative. Starting in 2005, through a USAID funded program, Atlas Coffee Importers has been working with the community, improving harvesting and processing practices and quality assessment. Due to the success of the relationship, the group has grown to 42 member and produces over 125,000 pounds.
Monserrate is rich with notes of Brazil nut and dark cane sugar, highlighted with the spiciness of old-fashioned cola. This coffee is sweet and complex, yet all the pieces fit well together. It is the perfect coffee to enjoy throughout the day.
