The coffee is grown in the Cerro Kilambé natural reserve in the district of Jinotega at an altitude of 1800 metres above sea level. The high altitude offers the ideal terroir for coffee cultivation. Both varieties, Caturra and Tipica, which we use in this espresso, are grown sustainably in the cloud forest surrounded by enormous bio-diversity. The green coffee is imported by Jonas Reindl directly to Austria and there are no middle men between the producer Ulrich Salamun and us.
In the coffee industry, direct trade is an approach taken by the specialty coffee industry as it is the most transparent way to buy coffee. Unlike commodity coffee which usually involves a broad range of middlemen and leaves with very little pay and security for the farmers. Fair Trade coffee is slightly better than commodity traded coffee but still comes with many obstacles such as the involvement of more middlemen and less transparency, traceability, and lower margins for the farmers than specialty coffee.
We hope to provide our customers with the best and therefore pay close attention to all factors affecting the quality of our coffee. These include cultivar, growing altitude, climate, soil chemistry, harvesting and processing conditions, drying method, storage conditions, transportation, roasting conditions, grind size, brewing water and brewing recipes.
Each one of our coffees is carefully selected by our roasting team. Before we buy in bulk, we go through many samples from different specialty coffee estates. Often times we are working with the most renowned coffee producers in the world.
All our coffee is roasted in our Roastery in Westbahnstraße 13, in Vienna. We roast small batches (10kg max) because we have better control over all the parameters that impact the flavour profile and can therefore better guarantee consistency.
We ensure traceability for all our coffees. Our house Espresso from Nicaragua is directly traded without any middle-men and when we go through a wholesaler, complete transparency is a must. We want to provide our customers with the ability to know where their coffee comes from down to the name of each farmer.
