2018 marked a statement of intent for us, to ensure that people growing exceptional coffee are still doing so in decades to come.
We started publishing the price we pay to producers exposing the traceability they deserve and discerning drinkers' demand as the new norm. We refer to the most direct payment as ‘Farmgate’.
We’re proud we can publish this for our single origins and house blends.
Seven Seeds has been involved with the Speciality Coffee Transaction Guide as data donors for the past five years. We have signed 'The Pledge', a commitment to transparency in coffee trading.
We also share this information in our Annual Impact Report.

ORIGIN: El Cedral, Santa Barbara, Honduras
VARIETAL: Pacas, Red Catuai
PROCESS: Fully Washed
ALTITUDE: 1780 masl
HARVEST: January to June
PRODUCER: Maria Reyes
RELATIONSHIP: Fourth year of purchasing
ORIGIN PARTNER: San Vicente
El Guayabal is a small farm, sitting at around 1780 masl. Production is relatively low, but quality is exceptionally high. As we enter the fourth year of this relationship, we are proud to say each year, we have purchased the total output from Maria and Mario's farm. Similar to the last harvest, El Guayabal suffered some production issues related to poor weather conditions. Here at Seven Seeds, we prioritise working with producers in good years and bad, focusing on people rather than profit.
Maria's 2023 lot is the definition of sophistication. Very, very delicate, structured well, with refined acid and florals. This relatively small lot comprises 70% Pacas (a natural mutation of Bourbon) and 30% Red Catuai (Cross between Mundo Novo & Caturra). Both varieties are susceptible to leaf rust and other nasties but perform well at high altitudes, which is evident in the cup. Maria has, against the odds, produced excellent coffee year-on-year.
This coffee provides a fantastic contrast to our forthcoming Honduras offerings, giving a glimpse into the wonderful array of flavour profiles currently coming out of this origin: a huge thanks and much love to Maria and Mario for another standout lot.
