Decaffeinated Ground Coffee Ethiopia 100% ARABICA

WHAT I DRINK

This coffee is decaffeinated without solvents by a process using CO2, which has the quality of fixing the caffeine. The coffee bean keeps all its aromas, but without the caffeine.
This Mocha from Ethiopia is grown in organic agriculture between 1200 and 2200 meters of altitude. It has a light body and a great sweetness with notes of honey and white flowers typical of the Sidamo region.
 

WHAT I STAND FOR

Strengthened family and rural economies

In southern Ethiopia, our project with the DWFCU cooperative union is to diversify incomes by strengthening the agro-forestry system of coffee farms.

Since 2004, Damota Wolayta Farmers Coop Union (DWFCU) brings together more than 23950 families. Their activities focus on food crops (maize, red beans, teff, etc.) to feed the markets in southern Ethiopia. 3,384 families also harvest the famous mocha on very small plots (less than 0.5 ha) for a low income. Our project with these families is to intensify the coffee gardens with an adapted agro-forestry system: shade trees, pruning of coffee trees, addition of compost, pest management... These gardens will be more productive and will ensure a diversification of income.

Partner since 2019

- Created in December 2003 by 26 grassroots cooperatives in the Wolaita area
- Currently, the number of affiliated grassroots cooperatives is 64
- 23,950 members

Ground coffee Congo 100% arabica

WHAT I DRINK

This coffee from Lake Kivu is fair trade and organically grown at an altitude of 1450 to 2000 meters. It has a nice balance between body and acidity. It remains soft with notes of yellow fruits and nuts.
 

WHAT I STAND FOR

The rebirth of a great terroir

Because they share a unique determination in an area of intense civil war, the producers are reviving the famous Lake Kivu coffee, a vintage for lovers of great terroirs.

The volcanic highlands on the shores of Lake Kivu in eastern DR Congo are home to a coffee terroir renowned for its generous aromas. An almost permanent civil war for 20 years has not been able to overcome the common vision of the 11,000 small farmers of SOPACDI. Their motto: coffee is our future. And for good reason: almost abandoned, the cultivation of coffee has regained its rights through conviction, technical support and the support of several companies involved in fair trade in Europe.

The coffee also comes from the CPNCK cooperative.

SOPACDI, partner since 2013

- Project supported by COOPAC (Rwandan NGO) and Alterfin (micro-finance)
- ETHIQUABLE supports SOPACDI with 3 other committed companies, specialists in fair trade: Twin in England, Oxfam in Belgium, Equal Exchange in the USA.

WHAT I STAND FOR

The resistance of cauca farmers to the dominant model

COSURCA's coffee farmers defend their land and their organic and peasant farming methods with their traditional varieties.

Since 1993, COSURCA has brought together 1460 vulnerable families in the south of Cauca with very limited access to land (barely 1 ha). This very poor rural area has been very much marked by the fighting between the guerrilla, the army and the paramilitary forces. This context has not diminished the resistance of these farmers. Faced with the model imposed in Colombia of a mass-produced hybrid coffee with an intensive use of pesticides, they claim to maintain their organic coffee plantations under shade. They have also freed themselves from the tutelage of the National Federation to become one of the only peasant organizations to export directly.

The coffee also comes from the FONDO PAEZ cooperative.

WHAT I STAND FOR

A sustainable agriculture in the Amazonian forest

The Amazonian foothills of the Peruvian Andes are home to a high altitude rainforest that is ideal for growing coffee. SOL Y CAFÉ is a leader in innovative agricultural practices. 

The motto of the SOL Y CAFE cooperative is "Soy Calidad, Soy Familia". Literally, they are a family. Every employee of the cooperative is either a producer himself or has direct family ties to one of the 1,200 member producers. This explains its great transparency and its approach to quality in order to enhance its terroir. The cooperative conducts in-depth research on organic fertilizers, agro-forestry cultivation methods and local plant material in order to propagate the most aromatic and robust varieties in nurseries. A dynamic that we support with a remunerative price.

The coffee also comes from the NORANDINO and ORO VERDE cooperatives.

WHAT I STAND FOR

The revival of a rare coffee in an isolated region

With the support of fair trade, the producers have renovated neglected coffee plantations and revealed a rare coffee. They were able to revitalize their region.

In the Loja region of Ecuador, farmers were getting little value for their coffee. Discouraged by the high fluctuations in world prices, they were abandoning their coffee farms. In less than 10 years, with the guarantee of fair and stable prices, the FAPECAFES cooperative has confronted the decline of coffee farming. The work undertaken in their coffee gardens (2 to 5 hectares of plots) has revealed all the qualities of their land. Starting from an initiative of a few producers, FAPECAFES is today strong of 1200 members.

FAPECAFES

Partner since 2003

- Puyango region, southern Ecuador
- The FAPECAFES center groups together 5 cooperatives (1,200 small producers)

Ground coffee Burundi 100% arabica

WHAT I DRINK

This Arabica from Burundi is grown organically between 1500 and 2000 meters above sea level in the Buyengero region in the south of the country.
Its lively cup gives a mellow body with a beautiful aromatic intensity and notably citrus notes.
 

WHAT I STAND FOR

More power for the producers

The small coffee producers in Burundi have been left behind by brutal privatization. Fair trade is helping them take back control of the coffee industry. A promising path.

687 small coffee producers run the UMUCO W'IKAWA cooperative in southern Burundi. The income from coffee in the second poorest country in the world makes the difference in the peasant economy. However, the coffee sector was brutally privatized in 2008, leaving its producers dispossessed of their harvest, starting with the coffee cherry washing station, which is now in the hands of private operators. With the support of fair trade, the cooperative has built its washing station. It sells its coffee directly with more added value.
 

Since the 1950s, colonial logic has made Burundi one of the main producers of arabica coffee on the continent. To the point that the little red cherry is the country's socio-economic barometer.
Coffee revenues represent 80% of the country's export earnings. 55% of the population, or 750,000 families, more than 4 million people, depend on coffee cultivation, the majority of whom are small farmers.
Nearly two-thirds of Burundians live below the poverty line and 60% are chronically malnourished. For a large part of the population, income from coffee cultivation makes the difference between hunger and food security.
