Red Box Platinum Fairtrade Coffee
Origins Fair Trade Brazil Coopfam Natural (67%) from the Cerrado region, a high plateau where the beans slowly mature under the shade of a gallery forest. The cooperative produces natural processed coffee, typical of Brazilian production, which involves drying coffee seeds in their fruit before its removal. The taste profile is distinct among coffees available from Fairtrade and Organic producers around the world in large part because of this processing method. Grown at altitude of 800 – 1,100 metres. Fair Trade Colombia Comepcafe (33%) is the best FTO [Fair Trade and Organic] offering from Colombia: This is in part thanks to the high altitude (1750–2200 meters) and after picking the cherries ripe, COMEPCAFE members depulp the coffee, then sort it using a zaranda, and dry ferment for 12 hours. The coffee is washed four times before being dried in a parabolic dryer. A lot of attention and love goes into preparing these green beans.
