Colombia, Luz Polo
TASTES LIKE Rose, Peach & Golden SyrupPROFILE Sweet & Delicate
All power to Luz! A female producer who fell into coffee, is all about ecological farming & anaerobic fermentation. A typical harvest at Finca La Esperanza- Monday’s pickings are set aside for 24 hours before being combined with Tuesdays pickings. They’re depulped together & held in bags for 60 hours & then washed. Luz is handing the mantle over to her son, a budding producer, with a strong role model to look up to.

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 Luz Polo 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.
