Guatemala, Rosma Lot 4
TASTES LIKE Marzipan, Plum, Red GrapePROFILE Sweet & Creamy
Old faithful. We love when Guatemala season comes around. It means predictable quality from the producers we purchase from year in, year out.
This particular Finca Rosma lot from Fredy Morales and his family, is one that stood out from others on the cupping table this year. Where this is the case, we pay higher prices for higher quality. That said, all lot prices are negotiated and agreed upon to be above and beyond the cost to produce any given lot.
In terms of flavour, we wanted to make sure that not only does the rich fruit sweetness come through, but also the creamy body to go along with it.
Finca Rosma has been listed as a sustainable coffee farm, taking care of two basic criteria: Environmental and social responsibility They offer houses, schools and medical assistance to farm employees. To conserve the soils and the biodiversity of the plantation, the coffee trees are cultivated in the shade. This is beneficial continue native forest and promotes wildlife habitat.ORIGIN Michicoy, Huehuetenango, Guatemala PRODUCER Fredy Milton Morales VARIETIES Bourbon ALTITUDE 1,500-1,900 MASL PROCESS Fully Washed PARTNERS Direct Purchase QUALITY SCORE 85.5 HISTORY Sixth year of direct purchase LOT SIZE 345KG

ROASTING IS SUBJECTIVE, BUT TRANSPARENCY IS CLEAR
We believe in the future of coffee so we’re publishing the price we pay for coffee, so farmers don’t need to turn to other crops. We’ve listed the FOB (Freight on Board) price we paid to the exporter & within that, the Farmgate price, what the Olvin Fernandez producers directly earned for their coffee as parchment. On top of FOB, this coffee was shipped to Melbourne, quality assessments completed, roasted (resulting in a 15% weight loss), & retailed, adding significant costs. You can read more about the way we source coffee via our website.
Compare the different trading models to see what Olvin would have received if they hadn’t sold to Seven Seeds. We've listed the $AU /kg conversion from $US/lb.
