One of our Kickstarter Backer Created Coffees!
Kickstarter Backers' Sara and Andy backed our campaign with one of the "Create Your Own Coffee" rewards. These two "crazy cat people" wanted to pay tribute to their favorite felines and offer a small "per bag" contribution to their favorite animal rescue, ALIVE RESCUE in Chicago. $1 of each pound sold will benefit Alive Rescue.
This wonderful naturally processed Guji coffee makes for the purrfect companion to our other Backer created coffee, "Dog Day Afternoon". Dog Day Afternoon comes from the same farm but is a washed coffee. Buy both today and explore how different processing methods affect the overall flavor profile of these gorgeous beans.

Notes from our Importer:
Kayon Mountain farm has a nursery on-site, and utilizes shade (gravilla, accacia, and other indigenous trees) to protect the coffee as well as for creating compost to fertilize naturally. The farm is separated into different areas or Blocks, each one is marked by its size, the variety or varieties planted there (as well as the date they were planted), elevation, the number of plants, and the type of soil. Ismel is meticulous about not only the structure and management of the farm itself, but also the harvesting and processing. Both Natural and Washed lots are produced on the property.
