  • About this Coffee: A nod to our little corner of the city. This blend is designed to taste great as espresso, is excellent for espresso and milk beverages, and is also a fantastic drip coffee option. The components of Central Ninth change seasonally. This blend currently consists of Brazil, Guatemala, and Ethiopia. The first component consists of a community lot from the Cerrado Mineiro region in Brazil. Producers that make up this lot participate in a sustainability program named “LIFT”. This program was designed by Mercon Specialty and works directly with producers to provide agronomic assistance to help increase quality and productivity. The second component is made up of 10 - 15 smallholder producers based in the region of Huehuetenango in Guatemala. Primavera Coffee Importers works with about 200 producers in Guatemala. Lots such as these are of great quality, but are just shy of standing on their own as single producer lots.The belief is that the extra income that comes from combining the lots will help producers reinvest into their farms and wet-mills, thus improving quality in the years to come. Lastly, a natural processed Ethiopian blend of coffees consisting of various producing regions and communities, are sourced using a model that helps producers sell a large portion of their specialty grade harvests after top quality lots have been sold into the market. This framework was structured by Catalyst Trade to create a better coffee producing economy in Ethiopia.
