Our London Fields range Roaster’s Choice Espresso blend is a blend of a Typica varietal from Chiapas, Mexico and a Tabi varietal from Tolima, Colombia.
Our first component from Mexico comes from Ejidos Union San Fernando Co-operative, a partner in direct trade with Cafedirect since 1996. San Fernando works with over 1,300 smallholder farmers with 40% of that being female producers.
Our second component comes from La Asosciacion de Productores Ecologicos de Planadas (ASOPEP). ASOPEP has 168 member families including 30 families where women are heads of the household and manage the farming operations. Educational capacity building workshops are at the core of ASOPEP’s program to ensure long term sustainability of their success.
