We're excited to share the second release in our Curated Series - this series is an opportunity for members of our team to join our green coffee buyer in choosing a coffee they find particularly special and has a story that speaks to them. This second edition of our Curated Series was hand picked by Quinn, our Roastery Assistant here at Pallet. As shared by Quinn:
"This coffee was sourced by Royal Coffee Importers through a partnership by JNP Coffee and Incuti producer group from Kayanza Province, Burundi. JNP helps producers with quality consulting, lot selection and expands their reach by marketing to JNP’s buyer community, as well as offering second payments as a premium for quality.
Cherry is floated for density and visible defects prior to depulping and fermentation. After fermentation is complete the wet parchment is sorted by density in concrete washing channels. Drying takes place at first under shade, and then in open air with the parchment piled into pyramids, which are flattened and re-shaped each day as a form of incremental air exposure to slowly and evenly dry the coffee and lock in the final moisture."
JNP is also a big advocate of female empowerment and has created a financial literacy program to help female farmers save and invest their money in their farms and local infrastructure. Because of this program groups have been able to provide loans to each other, creating an independent support system within the community.
I was excited to buy such high quality coffee and be able to see positive impact on the people that produced it".
Each box includes 1 x 340g sealed bag of coffee.
