Emma Senior Brand and Designer Manager from Tchibo Coffee Services recently visited Peru to see how how their Smokin’ Bean coffee is produced. She met the farmers at the beginning of the journey, learnt about the coffee growing process, how the farms become certified organic and visited the export mill.

 

She spent some time with Sol Y Café, one of the cooperatives they work with to source Smokin’ Bean coffee and she learnt some crazy things such as coffee farms are often named after plants and trees, that it takes approximately 220 days to go from bud to coffee cherry and 40 of this cherries are needed to make just one espresso.

She also saw the coffee taste testing process and learnt how the “Q graders” score the coffee.

Emma also discovered how the co-ops look after the well being of the coffee farmers through a subsidised cafe/restaurant and free access to fruit and vegetable crops. n In august they are opening a school so farmers can bring their families whilst they are harvesting the coffee. Next to the school there are also hostel bedrooms rented out at around $3 a night.
