MEET THE FARMER

From the Minas Gerais region of Brazil, this natural processed coffee ferments for 14 days, to break down sugars into the seed, and then is sun-dried on raised beds. Café Kreyol works directly with a cooperative of families in this region, each owning their own estate.

This direct trade relationship has brought sustainable employment to many farmers in the area, and as a result, their children have had consistent opportunities to attend school. This direct trade relationship has brought stable economical benefits to the region by reducing the volatility of the market.

MEET THE FARMER

The Pacas Family has been producing coffee for five generations, and selling it domestically in El Salvador. Thirty years ago they decided to process and export their coffees for the first time. Ever since, they have worked towards achieving high-quality coffees, caring for the environment and the communities around the farms and mill. One of the Pacas Estate farms is Finca La Esperanza. It is located on the western side of El Salvador and in its fertile soil, the Pacas Family produces 8 different varietals of coffee. This farm is 87 hectares and provides jobs for more than 100 people.

MEET THE FARMER

Cafe Kreyol has partnered with WCS (wildlife conservation society) to work with farmers, native to the land on the edge of the Andes mountains, and bordering the Rainforest of the Amazon. The land next to their farms is government-protected land, and the indigenous groups have decided to treat their land as if it were protected as well.

With the help of WCS, they have been certified Smithsonian Bird Friendly, one of the toughest conservation certifications in existence. Instead of clearing rainforest, Bird Friendly coffees grow underneath shade trees that sequester carbon, fight climate change and provide habitat for birds. Those bird include migratory species whose impressive journeys can take them from the backyards of the U.S. and Canada all the way to coffee farms in Latin America. All of which have also been certified Organic.

Cafe Kreyol worked directly with one team member there, Jorge, who instructed the numerous cooperative members to implement pH testing when picking, washing, and drying the coffee. This created a consistent, sweet, and chocolatey profile. The producers can now maximize their quality as well as safely grow the quantity of their production, allowing them to earn about 300% higher than the fair trade minimum for coffee.

MEET THE FARMER

18 Rabbit (18 Conejos) is a collective of farms all owned by different members of the Zelaya Ontreras family. Dulce Marlen, the owner of Finca Dulce Luna, is the matriarch of the family, and the owner of 18 Rabbit exports. Her and her husband were pioneers of both organic and Biodynamic farming techniques, being intentional about naturally regenerating the soil they use for their agriculture. Members of the 18 Rabbit family have placed in the top 10 for Honduras’ Cup of Excellence, and work together to create unique fermentations and cupping experiences for their partners.

WHY CAFE KREYOL?

We believe farmers should get paid based on the quality of their product and we practice this belief by paying up to 300% higher wages than what Fair Trade requires.

This Direct Trade system, that is now the backbone of Cafe Kreyol, believes that quality and sustainability are parallel.

Our story continues as we work to alleviate poverty in rural coffee growing regions, one cup at a time.
