1. ECUADOR JUAN PENA SANTA ISABEL
Terang - SO has always been a subscription where our coffee lovers discover the beauty of enjoying specialty coffee. This is our first time offering Ecuador coffee, and nothing could be better than offering one of the top coffee producers in Ecuador. Introducing Juan Pena, the man behind famous La Papaya coffee farm and also coffee export company called Cafe Exporto.
The dynamics of producing coffee are different for each country. For a country like Ecuador, competing for commercial coffee in the global trading market is difficult due to the high cost of producing coffee. Specialty coffee markets provide an alternative option for coffee producers and exporters like Juan Pena, who are more keen on premium coffee quality. Together with smallholder coffee growers, Juan Pena, or Cafe Exporter, has been offering one of the best coffee that you can get from Ecuador.
Santa Isable is a group of small holders coffee farmers who own small lot of few acre of land. Juan believes the climate in Santa Isabel has potential for quality, and he has been providing seed and technical support to producers. Through a model of collaboration, Juan has been able to build a traceable community blend with a vibrant regional profile. Each producer has their own micro-mill to carefully harvest cherries, depulp, ferment, wash, and gently dry the parchment on raised beds.
CaféExporto provides crucial logistical support for things like warehousing, quality control, and preparing coffee for export to the international market, which provides better income for everyone to reinvest in their farms and strengthen their families’ livelihoods. In return, participating farmers not only achieve higher yields and overall quality, but the new market connections also mean more stable and generous prices delivered directly to the farms via CafExporto.

2. COSTA RICA VOLCAN AZUL OBATA
Volcan Azul has always been a favourite coffee producer for most specialty coffee roasters. The reason is simple: non-compromising, top-notch specialty coffee. Under Alejo Castro's watch, Volcan Azul enjoys an excellent reputation for producing the finest Costa Rica coffee that you can find.
Costa Rica in general known for micro-mill and specialized in exotic coffee varietal. Beside that small batch coffee production allow them to have more room to carry various fermentation technique which appeal to micro coffee roaster. Alejo is no stranger to this field and has been growing a wide range of exotic coffee varietals at Volcan Azul. For our second coffee selection, we picked this particular rare Obata coffee varietal to share the unique coffee taste profile that you can get from Costa Rica coffee.
Obata, or Obata Rojo, is a cross-varietal between Timor Hybrid 832/2 and Villa Sarchi CIFC 971/10 coffee varietals. Pedigree selection was made by the Instituto Agronomico (IAC) of Sao Paulo State in Campinas, Brazil. released in Brazil in 2000 and brought to Costa Rica for commercial release in 2014 by the Costa Rican Coffee Institute (ICAFE).
We have seen a few excellent Timor Hybrid-based hybrid varietals and found they have more flavour complexity than natural coffee. With an excellent coffee producer like Alejo Castro, who won multiple Cups of Excellence awards, this coffee promises lots of berries and chocolate notes. The best part is the clean, natural process that amplifies natural sweetness with high flavour clarity.
