This is a 300g bag 

The profile of this coffee has a complex citrus acidity of a key lime, touching both sweetness and fresh fruit qualities. The body is full and creamy, reminding us of butterscotch. The finish is long and the coffee remains balanced with a note of vanilla.

This lot comes from the La Palma y El Tucan (LPET) Neighbours & Crops program, which is a community program, empowering and activating nearby coffee producing families. It's a powerful business model that positively impacts the community in many different ways.

LPET has a team called the Elite Picker Squad. This team is constantly monitoring the progress of the coffee plants throughout their farm as well as the N&C program. They focus on pruning, fertilizing, applying compost (made organically at LPET), and harvesting the cherry. This intense level of detail ensures maximum expression of the coffees harvested and premium dollar to go back and support each of the neighbouring families. They're also able to focus their efforts of other crops and projects through the security of the N&C program.

Through the bio-innovation process, La Palma y El Tucan honours the main principles of organic farming by capturing and reproducing microorganisms found within the farm to inoculate the coffee, and drive the flavours utilizing their terroir. The whole cherry is fermented for 116 hours in sealed ceramic pots inoculated with local yeasts, then pulped and fermented an additional 25 hours with mucilage in traditional open air ceramic tanks. It’s then dried for 25 days in shaded raised beds, which are both temperature and humidity controlled, and then 72 hours in mechanical drier.

Once your order is received, it will be processed and shipped in 1-3 days.

We source directly from producers when we can to make sure the most profit gets to the farmer. Our sourcing values are shown through our icons on each of our coffee labels and on the back of our coffee bags.

Our 340g and 2lb coffee bags are made entirely of from plant materials and breakdown in a relatively short period of time.

Can I put my used bag in the city compost?
Putting these bags in the city of Calgary's compost is not recommended, due to the current processing facility. However, you can compost the outer lining in a healthy home compost (see further down the page for for info).

Alternative
These bags will break down 90% faster in the landfill than the majority of coffee bags on the market.
