April News

Edith Meza from Finca Tasta in Peru shares her innovation in our featured coffee this month!

Meet Edith Meza Sagarvinaga, the farmer behind our current featured coffee, Finca Tasta Honey Caturra, Lactic Fermentation, from her farm in Llaylla-Satipo, Peru. She's the face you see looking back at you on every bag of her coffee. Edith has been a part of Carrboro Coffee Roasters Farmer Direct Relationship Program for years now, officially coming aboard in 2015.

CCR President Scott Conary first met Edith in 2013 when she volunteered to judge the Peru National Barista Championships, where Scott acted as Head Judge. It was at this event that Edith shared her coffee with Scott, her first harvest of a natural process coffee from her farm, which she had recently inherited from her mother. This coffee was incredible - clean and sweet with notes of fresh tropical fruit. At this time just the idea of a natural process coffee in Peru was considered impossible but here was Edith with an incredible natural process coffee!

Since 2015 CCR and Edith continue to support each other and find ways to continue to both develop the farm and experiment with new varietals and processes. The fruits of which we are now sharing with you as our featured coffee!

Available as a pour-over brew at Open Eye Cafe & Caffe Driade, as well as online to be delivered directly to any doorstep.   More info HERE

CCR President Scott Conary will again be a Head Judge for the Alliance for Coffee Excellence (ACE) Private Collection Auctions, this time with Nicaragua coffee producers Fincas Mierisch and their special auction - Los Favoritos.

This quality competition and auction program is part of ACE’s ongoing Private Collection series, which features partnerships with origin-specific green coffee producers focused on quality production. While these small auctions are separate from the ACE long-running Cup of Excellence competition and auctions, both have the goal of supporting farms and farmers who work to create & increase quality in the industry as well as celebrating innovation, and connecting farmers to buyers.
