154 lb. sack of green coffee beans.
"El Recreo" in Minca, Magdalena, Colombia
"El Recreo" farm is a beautiful story about perseverance and hard work. Three generations ago, the Balaguera family emigrated into the Sierra Nevada. With love and passion for the land, each generation has improved the growing methods and techniques bringing a unique flavor and aroma to the coffee, without losing the main focus of growing all-natural, sustainable, and environmental conservation. These methods have become fundamental in the development of the Sierra Nevada coffee culture.
Since being introduced to the "Recreo" farmers in 2020 Guadalupe has purchased thousands of pounds of coffee which is being used to support the local community.
Our SCA ratings across the board put us in the top 3% percent of beans in the world with scores ranging from 83-90 overall.
Our Nicaraguan (best seller) coffee grows in, and directly sourced from the mountains of Matagalpa at an elevation of appx 1,800 meters. To keep it simple, they always say, “the higher the altitude the better the coffee.”
Our Brazilian coffee is grown in some of the richest soil on the planet, low altitude fields, and the hot humid climate that coffee plants thrive in. This profile makes it the perfect base for flavored coffees and espresso blends.
Our Colombian coffee is grown, harvested, and directly sourced from a mountainous region appx 1,800 to 2,000 in Minca, Magdalena, Colombia. Each bean goes through a rigorous selection process, thus raising the quality so high.
For those who enjoy their coffee smooth and creamy, the Brazil roast is right up your alley! If you want a roast that carries a citrus-like acidity, giving just a hint of a fruity aftertaste, then Colombia is your cup of coffee. To finish our trip around the world, any coffee drinker who is looking for smooth bodied coffee, with a bright acidity, carrying floral, citrus and chocolate notes, and a sweet aroma then Nicaragua is for you.
Beginning with farmers Rolyn and Lorena Garcia in Nicaragua, Guadalupe Roastery has always been a Farmer First Organization that is now actively pursuing direct trade relationships with farmers around the world. Paying .80c + more per pound than Fair Trade and forging a new type of relationship with coffee farmers, Guadalupe Roastery looks to empower farmers to support themselves, their families, and their communities by forming a partnership. One day, we hope to be partnering with as many coffee growers as they can in order to bring families and communities out of poverty, while offering the highest quality coffee beans from around the world.
