Our trips to diverse coffee growing regions serve as a way to keep in contact with producers, or to seek out potential producers, which we believe is integral to true fair trade. These trips are an educational experience where we learn about coffee production, and also, a pleasure when meeting the owners and workers who run these farms.
Dominican Republic - February 2014
Costa Rica - December 2012
Traveling in the central highlands and valley of Costa Rican coffee country, we toured a few of the coffee producing estates. Notably, Doka Estate coffees proved to have some of the finest beans. We sampled coffees and had a wonderful breakfast at Cafe Tres Generaciones before embarking on Doka's tour of the plantation, processing plant and roastery. Since then, our appreciation has grown for the dedicated men and women who produce Costa Rican fair trade coffee.
Panama - January 2010
We arrived in Panama City and took a small charter plane to the town of David where we met our guide who drove us to Kotowa Estate Coffee in the highlands of Boquette. This coffee is grown at 4500 feet in a mountainous area famous for its year-round climate conducive to developing a coffee with good body, rich chocolate aroma and sweet acidity. The cherries are hand picked by Ngobe Indians who harvest the same trees up to five times per season to guarantee that only the right beans are selected.
