SEED TO SIP:
We love crafting a beautiful cup of coffee, connecting people and sharing their stories. At the same time we are building a fairer and more transparent coffee supply chain by directly connecting with smallholder farmers, and by sourcing at least 50% of our coffees from women coffee producers, highlighting their amazing talents. So we are very excited to bring this coffee produced by women coffee growers under the project ‘Flores em ação’ (Flowers in action) to Australian shores. The producers are members of the APAS Cooperative located in the region of Mantiqueira de Minas in the Minas Gerais side of Serra da Mantiqueira.
The ‘Flores em ação’ project encourages women of the cooperative to harvest, process and market their own coffees, thereby receiving the recognition and direct remuneration for their passion, dedication and skills in producing specialty coffees.
‘Flores em ação’ coffees have been selectively harvested by picking only ripe coffee cherries. This method produces higher quality coffees with unique profiles notwithstanding it is also the most labour intense manual harvesting method.
