MEET VICTOR BARRERA

This Friday May 26th only at Traveller Coffee and this Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th May only at Seven Seeds Carlton, Brother Baba Budan and Hortus x Seven Seeds there will be a very special coffee available on filter.

We have been lucky to secure only 25kg of this beautiful coffee, a varietal which was originally developed by Cenicafe, combining Timor Hybrid, Typica and Bourbon. Farmer, Victor Barrera chose to plant this rare varietal on his farm for many reasons. Tabi’s resistance to disease, the plants architecture itself and the result in the cup are to name but a few. 

Despite the relative comfort of harvesting Tabi over more traditional Colombian varieties, Victor pays his pickers considerably more to ensure that only the ripest possible fruit makes it into his wooden hopper before getting processed.

We want to express our appreciation to Victor for this special coffee and the effort and experience that has gone into producing it and we’d like to give you that opportunity too. If you are lucky enough to try a cup of El Tesoro, you'll have the option to leave a tip for Victor, which we will match. This will be given to him at the end of this year’s harvest as a bonus from his true clients — you, the one’s drinking his coffee.

There will also be a limited amount of retail available at each site, and $5.00 from each 250g bag will go back to Victor directly. 

Check in on our website and Instagram to see how much is raised for this very deserving farmer.
