Background story on these beans:
Direct trade from 'El Balcon', a family owned farm. These beans are hand picked to ensure top quality by a family that has been producing coffee for generations. The farm is located at an altitude of 1950 meters above sea level.
This producer grew up in a family that truly values their ancestry, culture and the lands they tend to. Family values have instilled such a passion for coffee, which is needed because being a coffee producer is a 24 hour a day job and extremely hard work. This isn’t well recognized by the everyday coffee consumer.
During harvest season they wake up at 4am every morning to take care of the farm. It’s difficult for them to get coffee to town since they do not have a car or mules. In order to get to the Chiva (public transportation) in town they have to carry the coffee on their shoulders for nearly 30 minutes. How is that for a fitness/adventure inspired coffee!! Even the producer of the RX ROAST is grinding it out and carrying heavy weight.
