IT ALL STARTS AT THE COFFEE FARM
Joel and Margarida started their journey as coffee growers 10 years ago. Their greatest motivation came in realizing their dream of working in their own business and, the greates of all, in using the income from production to provide their daughters with access to education.
And the dream came true - today, the couple has a daughter with a law degree and works in the area. Their other daughter is studying psychology.

HOW DID WE ROAST THIS COFFEE?
This coffee is being roasted by Ian T. from July 17 to August 16 in Brooklyn. We use the Loring Kestrel roaster for this profile. We have strict guidelines for each of the coffee profiles, and this roast has to pass the development time ratio test as measured in real-time by the roasting software, Cropster. Once it does, it is approved for production.
We perform Quality Control via a process of coffee tasting called cupping on all of our production roasts twice a week at our facility in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Cupping is attended by Q-certified cupper Ian T., roaster Dave H.and founder Suyog M. All coffees are evaluated on a scoring scale of 0 to 3.
- 3.0 = exceptional roast - exceeds expectations
- 2.5 = on par with profile - matches expectations
- 2.0 = good roast, but 1 or 2 elements could be improved - needs improvement
- 1.5 or lower = failed - do not ship
PRODUCTION AND SHIPPING
Less than 24 hours after roasting, we bag your coffee in our production facility in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Our production team is led by Anthony and Torie, and supported by a rotating cast of local artists, musicians and independent professionals.
