Where will coffee be evaluated? On farm/off-site?
The coffee is evaluated at our processing mill by
our Q-Grader certified tasters.
Are single lots to be evaluated?
All coffee is evaluated as applicable:
Quality control during processing.
Quality control during storage in silos and warehouses.
Preparation of lots for coffee shipments.
– We also have a Micro-Lot Program, which
consists of special coffee grown on small parcels
that our Coop Members set aside on their farms.
Said parcels are given very special attention and
care, and the resulting harvest is then very
carefully processed. This coffee can be either
mucilage, depending on the preferences of the
clientele that exists for these special production
If yes, is there a chance to purchase single lots?
Yes, the opportunity exists to roast a gourmet coffee with
very special characteristics. You will be able to see this
process during your visit.
In terms of grading: percentage of commodity/speciality coffee?
The quality yields are 75% premium grade, 15% second
grade, and 10% inferior grades.
A few outstanding farms obtaining higher prices for good quality?
Naranjo has ideal conditions for coffee production. The
soils, elevation, micro-climates, and Pacific Basin influence
combine to make the coffee produced in this region sought
after by the world’s finest roasters (Starbucks, Illy, Caribou
Coffee, Peet´s Coffee, Micro-Roasters of Japan, etc.) for use in
their special blends or alone as an exclusive specialty coffee.
High prices are obtained only when small quantities of coffee
are sold, such as with the micro-lots. As you know, coffee
prices generally are dependent on the New York Exchange.
This is why we have searched for a different way to market
our coffee, which must be roasted for that value-added
• Cup of Excellence participation? If
Yes, we have participated in the Cup of
Excellence. There is always strong participation
from the Naranjo region, with our growers’
coffees consistently placing among the most
It is a very small
market, though, and thus favors only a select few.
