Re:Colecta | Baraka Coffee Co.
How does it work?
During the pilot season of the program, the first participating farm will instruct coffee pickers to only pick ripe coffee cherries throughout the duration of this year's harvest at that particular location. All the coffee that is collected will be inspected for quality and logged into a daily report. At the end of the season, these reports will be added up and the top 3 pickers will be awarded with cash prices.
I am a coffee picker. How do I participate?
Once the program is up and running, a number of coffee farms will be selected to participate. These farms will be announced through our website and social media platforms. Also, ReColecta signs and rules will be placed at these farms. All you have to do is to look for work at one or more of these farms for a chance to win.
I am a coffee farmer. How do I get my farm enrolled in this program?
Available spots will be announced prior to the upcoming season. Coffee farms that comply with certain requirements for coffee quality will be able to apply for that season. Once selected, you will be able to use this incentive as a tool to attract coffee pickers to your farm.
I love Puerto Rican coffee. How can I help?
As part of the fund raising aspect of the program, we will be offering limited art pieces from renowned local artist inspired by the coffee pickers through our website. The proceeds from these sales will go to cover the cash prizes and expenses associated with each participating farm. The more we are able to collect, the more farms will be able to enroll.
