We’re busy searching the world’s producing nations for the best coffees, produced by the nicest of people. Here are some of the relationships we have developed so far..
Our home base, Indonesia, is where it all began. With processing facilities, buying networks, and our beloved Wahana Estate, we are well placed to source and provide access to the finest coffees of the islands. Indonesia is capable of producing stunning coffees, and with knowledge of new processing techniques spreading rapidly, we also have increasing access to top specialty varieties. Whether you need high quality washed arabica or robusta from the Java Government Estates, buttery, rich community coffees from northern Sulawesi, or the heavy bodied herbal high notes of Sumatran Aceh beans, we can get them to your door. Our Wahana Natural micro-lots are fast gaining a cult following in Japan, the US and Australia, while the Wahana washed Longberry is an expression of heirloom Ethiopian coffee from Indonesian soil.
Within this incredible origin we have the pleasure of a long relationship with the team at Exclusive Coffees in San Jose. Their large network of amazing micro-producers sets the benchmark for quality and traceability worldwide. The team at Exclusive work year-round with their farmer partners to assist with crop maintenance, processing, and marketing, so that each farmer can produce and sell their own coffee direct to roasters, and form lasting relationships. Every year we travel to San Jose to taste the crop and select lots from our favourite growers, like Granitos de Altura, La Lia, Finca Sumava, Altos de Abejonal, and El Pilon. Talk to us about buying the best of Costa Rica- we carry a limited quantity on spot availability and can also buy on request from the harvest and ship for you.
This stunning country has long been considered merely as a source of quality blenders, but Colombia is flexing its muscles lately and demonstrating some superb growing and processing prowess. We can offer coffees from a range of Colombian sources, from high quality Caldas and Huila Supremo to the latest micro-lots including honey and temperature controlled naturals. There are many exciting projects in Colombia looking for roaster connections and export opportunities. As more roasters engage with us, we are able to facilitate greater opportunities for these remarkable farmers.
Brazil- the giant of coffee producing nations and the essential base for many coffee blends. We have been working together with the Faria family at Fazenda Imperio for several years now, supplying their coffees to roasters in Australia and the US. The Farias produce coffee for all qualities and all budgets, so speak to us about catering for your Brazil requirements with full traceability back to the farm. Brazil is now also consistently producing some incredibly fine naturals, able to compete with the best from Ethiopia and Costa Rica. Due to the huge demand and limited supply, prices are high, but we continue to work towards attainable supply solutions for these amazing coffees.
Ethiopia, the glorious home of coffee and still the ultimate destination for any coffee pilgrim. With a variety of sources for Ethiopian washed and natural coffees, we can supply staple, high quality blending options in addition to trawling the auction season searching for top Gr 1 lots.
