Connecting you to the farmers

Your tasting observations, ratings and special messages to the farmer will be collated into a report and sent to the farmer, along with a few bags of roasted coffee. Here’s a chance to thank your coffee producers, and share your feedback directly with them!

SEND FARMER FEEDBACK

THE BACKSTORY

For us, remembering the various hands that coffee travels through from fruit to cup has always been important. That’s what inspired our luggage tag-like labels and the producer stories that we send with each coffee.

When we visited a few coffee farms this year, one thing every farmer asked was, “What did you think of the coffee”? It made us realize that, while we, the roaster, do get to hear from you, the farmers themselves don’t!

And so, the Driftaway Farmer Feedback program was born – to connect you to the people that grow your coffee with so much love and dedication!

PILOT COFFEES

We are piloting with the following three coffees (along with the help of our importers, Cafe Imports and Royal NY) from our July-August batch. As we learn and iterate, we plan to expand to all coffees.

ETR | ETHIOPIA SIDAMO ARORESA

This coffee comes courtesy of Royal NY, who have a fabulous reputation with Ethiopian coffees. It’s from the Aroresa washing station, which is located near Arbe Gona, Sidamo. Coffee farmers from the surrounding area bring their harvested cherries to the washing station. Learn more

COG | COLOMBIA HUILA JAMIE NUNEZ

Jamie Burbano Nuñez’s entry into the coffee world was as a seasonal picker. Through hard work and discipline, he managed to save up enough from picking coffee cherries to finance his own farm. Today, Jamie owns Buena Vista, which supports Jamie’s family and 10 to 15 seasonal workers. Learn more

ELN | EL SALVADOR SANTA ANA

This coffee comes through Federico Pacas processing mill in Santa Ana. Federico owns and manages Cafe Tuxpal, a coffee processing mill. At his mill, Federico brings in harvested coffee from the surrounding farms and then processes it into what we receive as green coffee. Learn more
