Imperio Rojo is a mill we've been working with for the last four years. It's owned and operated by a husband and wife combo name Jose and Annie Alvarado. They're located in a beautiful area of Costa Rica called Chirripo and have land on their farm that spans up to 2100 metres. They're growing Catuai and Caturra and that's what makes up this particular offering.

Chirripo is a relatively new player when it comes to Costa Rican coffee producing areas. With production stretching back over the past few years, we are thrilled to be offering such a fantastic coffee in such an up and coming region. The views are amazing from the 2000m hills that are covered in coffee!

Jose owns and operates his Imperio Rojo. It's here that he does all of his processing with a meticulous degree of detail. He and his wife live at the mill, in an absolutely beautiful landscape.

Businde is a coffee washing station in the Kayanza District of Burundi. It's been in operation for over 10 years and has won the Cup of Excellence. 

Unlike other washing stations, Businde has it's own plot of coffee plants that's up and coming. It's more common for small holder farmers to sell their coffee cherries to washing stations in Burundi and in Rwanda. So this is an exciting project coming to life soon. The coffee here is sweet, it's well processed and the facilities are incredibly clean.
