“This is the Champagne-region of the coffee world”, Menno Simons – founder of Trabocca – explains. “Perfect growing conditions: right amount of rain and fertile ground, that absorbs all essential minerals. Locals rarely dare to use the main road, especially in the rain season, because you won’t be able to get out of the misty valley – due to muddy slopes. It is as if beauty and danger are inseparable.”
Together with partner and roaster, Allegro, they pre-financed: a Brazilian eco-pulper (which locals referred to as ‘the evil white-man-machine’ because it discarded green cherries), a generator to fuel the pulper, drying beds and better roads. All of which make production more efficient. We also invested in agronomy training for the farmers and in certification for the co-operative.
