We're thrilled to be working with Marleny Imbachi's coffee from this most recent harvest. She is an exceptionally knowledgable and talented producer and we've been drinking her coffee for years before ever having the opportunity to buy it to roast ourselves. Marleny and her husband, Augusto Ortega, are both well-renowned producers in San Augustin and founding members of the Monkaaba group. We purchased from both Augusto and Marleny's pink bourbon lots last year and they were easily some of our favorites on the menu. This year, we're happy to share Marleny's Gesha; a variety renowned for its quality potential. It's soft and delicate with floral honey and tea-like aromatics, plus a lively citrus acidity that reminds us of tropical fruits like mango, papaya, and honeydew melon. 

The Monkaaba group is an initiative aimed at assisting producers in finding better market access and better prices for their coffees, but also helps invest in producers to ensure their future success. The group is educating producers on how the supply chain works so that they can better navigate it, while helping them to improve growing, harvesting, and processing techniques. The also host open weekly cuppings to improve producer's ability to evaluate and understand their coffees while they receive feedback from other members.
