OUR FARMING PARTNER
With only a small amount produced each year, we're proud to bring this uniquely delicious coffee from a lesser-known specialty coffee growing region. Sourced direct from a small, 100% farmer-owned cooperative in the fertile growing regions of South-Central Vietnam, this coffee represents a new paradigm in global coffee trade.
For our company, it represents everything we hope to stand for. The K'Ho is the very first coffee Old Quarter ever imported. We started with just one humble pallet. Over the past 4 or so years, we've developed trust through an ongoing relationship and we've all benefited from working closely together. We've been able to pitch in when a fire damaged their homes and business and fundraise for new equipment to help them improve processing.
This cooperative is made up of a small group of families of the K'Ho ethnic minority group. They have worked hard for many years to improve all aspects of growing, harvesting and processing their coffee in order to produce an exceptionally high quality product. What they have achieved so far is inspiring and we're grateful to be part of their story! Expect some exciting new coffees from this co-op in the future!
