ABOUT

This coffee is produced mainly in the department of Mifi, in Cameroon. It is a high-altitude area that was long neglected because it lacked the resources needed to prepare cherries. To be able to produce this lot, Belco decided to support a long-established Mifi cooperative. Created in 1958, the cooperative is well equipped for handling coffee, from when the cherries are received through to processing. It was almost abandoned at one point due to insufficient resources, so we decided to develop a pre-financing project in order to help it buy cherries and get its facilities back up and running.

We have separated one lot from the rest, sourced only from the Hauts-Plateaux department in the Mifi terroir. Once harvested, these coffees are sorted according to their altitude during washing and drying. This makes it possible to produce a more homogeneous lot. Our consultant, Marjorie, is also working with local producers to not only improve harvesting and processing techniques, but also prepare for the future by providing training for producers and for the local cooperative in new processing methods.

The cooperative benefits from a real know-how and is keen to keep on learning in order to improve quality, for example by separating coffees according to altitude. The Hauts-Plateaux coffees are some of the best to have left Cameroon this year!
