farm: finca loma la gloria
producer: Anny Ruth
process: washed, red honey
Finca Loma La Gloria's head of quality control and cupper Francisco developed a processing experiment in which the drying process for the coffee was started separately with a washed and red honey process. On the second day of the drying, he blended the honey and the washed so they would dry together merging the unique aspects of both processes between the two beans. We enjoyed this process so much that we applied the same concept to our Pacamara. This is a one of a kind blend that truly brings an incredible and unique cup of coffee to Bird Rock.
We have worked with Anny Ruth to supply the farm workers - millers and cherry pickers - with Eco-Stoves as a Beyond the Bean Project. When possible, BRCR likes to go beyond paying great prices for great coffee to the owner of a farm or mill and directly and positively influence the life of the workers all the way down the supply chain. By supplying 24 Eco-Stoves with proceeds from Anny's last harvest, the workers save money on fuel while saving precious natural resources and creating a healthier family environment.
