The new harvest allows us to rediscover the producers we have been introducing for several vintages. This year, Belco's commitment also continues with more organic coffees as well as more natural and honey processes.
Some coffees speak! The elegance with which they present themselves makes us think of complex environments, they offer a unique sensorial experience, the essence of an Ethiopian forest !
No one can ignore the images of the Amazon rainforest, or other forests, plagued by devastating fires these last days. In reflecting on the impact that coffee can have on these fragile tropical areas, I remain convinced that it is essential to support the production of coffee produced in its natural space: the forest.
Last July, Marjorie went to Indonesia for our second sourcing trip with our coffee friends from Klasik Beans. The aim this time was to go deep inside the production and processing operations carried out by this well-known cooperative to later make a full evaluation and training in line with our Active Sourcing Program. This journey is presented in 2 episodes and starts here in West Java.
Maurico, we like to compare him to a particularly precise and fine microbrewer. His coffees, although produced by a man, are for me a symbol of femininity, with an intense fruitiness. Its terroir is incredible but the Mauricio touch is undeniable. During a field visit with Marjorie, an agricultural engineer from Belco, we ask him a few questions about his coffees, his farm and his relationship with Belco.
Resolutely modern, we mainly purchase our green coffee directly in order to fully control quality and create long-term relationships with our partners. As ambassadors for producers, we strive hard in the field to provide good coffees long term.
Our quality control is unique and innovative in order to improve quality in the cup of coffees consumed. Find out how our search for efficiency requires us to collect, control and share in-depth technical information with our partners.
