Cupping Room Collection | Honduras El Jaguar

We sent a team of three to Honduras on a sourcing trip earlier this year, so they could learn more about coffee and its producers. Stefano Bizzarri, Antonio Madeddu and Pearl Café Manager Juan Pablo Martín Riba spent a week visiting spectacular places, meeting memorable people, and tasting coffee, including the Honduras El Jaguar.   We met with Don Victor Barahona, who works as the president of the board of COHORSIL (La Cooperativa Cafetalera Siguatepeque Limitada).

Cupping Room Collection | Burundi Masha

Known as the "Heart of Africa", Burundi is a land-locked and resource poor country. Their predominately agricultural economy employs more than 90% of the population, with its primary exports being coffee and tea - making coffee the heart of Burundi, providing hope for a better future.   A relative newcomer to the specialty coffee world, Burundi's coffee production started in the 1930's and was privatized in 2009.

Cupping Room Collection | Rwanda Sholi Women Produced Microlot

The Abateraninkunga Ba Sholi Cooperative, or Sholi Cooperative, meaning Mutual Assistance, was founded in 2008 by 30 women determined to invigorate Rwanda’s coffee market and their local community.

The coop has used these premiums to improve infrastructure - a second washing station, a community center, a regional health center, and a wastewater management facility have all been added to the...

CUPPING ROOM COLLECTION | NICARAGUA NUEVA SEGOVIA

Nicaragua is making a bold comeback in the coffee industry - after the devastation of Civil War and Hurricane Mitch in 1998, coffees from this region have been dominating Cup of Excellence competitions. In 2018, the top 5 winning coffees were produced in Nueva Segovia. The lush Nueva Segovia region boasts near perfect growing conditions - shade, fertile volcanic soil, high elevations, and organized producers who pay careful attention to cultivation and processing. In fact, most coffee in Nicaragua is shade grown. Most of the coffee from this region is produced by small family farms averaging just three hectares (about...
