Colombia, Ciriaco Munoz
TASTES LIKE Chocolate, Honeycomb & CinnamonPROFILE Creamy & Balanced
A tricky first name for non-Spanish speakers - Ciriaco (pronounced See-ri-ah-co), has a relatively large farm for the area. At 6ha in size, he’s growing predominantly Caturra, and a smaller amount of Castillo varieties, completing a natural de-pulped fermentation period before washing. Ciriaco is part of the Cooperativa de Cafes Especiales de Narino, which helps bolster his access to the market.
PARTNERS Caravela Coffee
We believe in the future of coffee. We’re calling on the industry to pay sustainable prices, so coffee farmers don’t need to turn to other crops to survive. We’ve listed the FOB (Freight on Board) price we paid to the exporter & within that, the Farmgate price, what Ciriaco 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.
