    TASTER'S TALE

    Spring. Seventeen-year cicadas sing from the treetops as the last drop of coffee finds its way through the filter and into the pot. The porch is warm, the first sip is floral as the daffodils blooming with their yellow, gold flair just feet away. A smooth, lingering sweetness follows -- some type of berry. Blueberry? Perhaps. Strawberry? Yes, strawberry, just like the one they plucked from their garden to test its ripeness. To think, a coffee seed grown thousands of miles away could taste so much like their own backyard. Incredible. 

    ABOUT THE FARMER

    Adelmo Ramirez Guevara is 45 years old, he lives with his wife and his four sons, all of whom are students. Guevara has been cultivating coffee since 18 years old when he inherited five hectares (~12 acres) of land from his parents. With the help of CENFROCAFE, a community-based coop of coffee farmers,  Adelmo has been able to not only grow his production but also achieve an organic and Fairtrade certification for his products.
