This microlot supports an amazing cause, the Catracha Community, as well as ensures the farmer, Isidoro Sanchez, receives a fair price for his coffee, no matter what the commodity price is. That's coffee we can get behind and it's delicious to boot! Balanced and slightly sweet with a creamy texture and full body. We noted dark chocolate, papaya, red apple and walnut in the cup.
Arrival Date: February 5th, 2021
Acidity & Brightness: Bright and mildly sweet
Balance & Finish: Balanced, smooth nutty finish
Body & Texture: Creamy, silky texture, full body
Flavors: Dark chocolate, papaya, red apple and walnut
Grade: SHG – Strictly High Grown, 1750 masl
Processing: Fully washed, hand-picked, sun dried
Roasting: Excellent right at a medium roast (Full City) but takes all roast levels well. We have a preference toward a slightly lighter profile right at City+ (tail end of first crack) for less chocolate and more fruit. Darker roasts will have more chocolate and milder acidity but thinner texture.
Reminder: This coffee is raw, you must roast it before brewing!
Our Review: "Isidoro Sánchez has a 5 acre farm called El Poso in the community of Aguanqueterique. He lives in the nearby community of Llano Alegre with his wife and 6 children. In prior years, Isidoro has sold his family's coffee in cherry to the local middleman. For the last two years he has been working with Catracha Coffee. During this time he has improved his farm management practices using lime to control the pH of his soil, fertilizing with organic compost, and spraying organic fungicides to control levels of leaf rust. These actions have improved the health of his farm and the quality of his coffee production. Isidoro has learned to process coffee using his own micro-mill so that he can depulp, ferment, wash and dry his coffee before delivering it to Catracha Coffee. With profits from the sale of his micro-lot, Isidoro has started renovations to older parts of the farm. Mayra Orellana-Powell founded Catracha Coffee Company to connect her coffee growing community with roasters. Nearly ten years later, Catracha Coffee has gained momentum with more than 80 producers and 20 roasters working together on sustainable relationships and a profit-sharing model, which has consistently paid at least $2.00 per pound directly to producers. This extra income helps increase each producer’s capacity to reinvest in their farm, and overtime, increase their standard of living. The sale of Catracha Coffee also creates income for a non-profit called Catracha Community (a 501(1)(c)(3) nonprofit), which invests in income diversification opportunities without taking resources from a farmer’s bottom line." -Royal Coffee
This coffee supports such an amazing cause! When we heard about it, we knew we wanted to support everything Catracha Coffee is doing. Honestly, we didn't even care how good it was, we were sold. Gratefully, it's absolutely delicious! This microlot features amazing balance and a bright front end with a smooth, nutty finish. The texture is creamy to silky with a full body. We noted rich dark chocolate, papaya, red apple and walnut in the cup.
