"This fully-washed organic coffee is sourced from 10 family-owned farms organized by Café Brisa Serena (CBS), a social enterprise founded in 2010 that helps producers achieve organic certification and incorporate best farm management practices. The improvements in processing and attention to detail is evident in the cup. The result is a massive, heavy bodied coffee; syrupy sweet, loaded with caramel and melony fruit. It is a luscious coffee with standalone quality. Ships in a cute, pillow-like, 30kg GrainPro lined bag."
