REcolecta is an initiative that looks to incentivize coffee pickers in Puerto Rico through a contest at selected farms in which cash prizes will be given to the top three pickers at the end of the harvest season. With these efforts, we hope to not only revive this ailing sector but to also attract new people to these farms who so desperately need them. Sandra Farms in Adjuntas, will be the first participating farm.
Just got back from sourcing an amazing coffee produced by our good friends up in Adjuntas, Puerto Rico. The view and the weather was great, but the coffee was even better. Nicknamed "The Switzerland of Puerto Rico", the mountainous municipality of Adjuntas boasts the perfect conditions for Arabica varieties to flourish and so it produces some of the best coffee that we have tasted so far on the island. We can't wait to get back and start roasting our signature Back In Black coffee. #BarakaCoffeeCo
