More about this coffee:
In 2003, Terranova Estate became our first C.A.F.E Practices-verified supplier in Africa. C.A.F.E (Coffee and Farmer Equity) Practices is a set of coffee-buying guidelines designed to reward not just sustainable farming but also high-quality coffee – something Terranova was working on intensely. The harsh Zambian dry season had been drying their harvest too quickly. By deliberately slowing the process, the growers allowed the flavors inside the bean to fully develop, revealing notes of stone fruit (think apricot) and cocoa in the cup – a complexity you might expect from a master blend, but is surprising to find in nature. Fortuanately for all of us, the growers at Terranova have always believed in the potential of their coffee, which we’re proud to share with you as a Black Apron Exclusives? offering.
