"PLACE OF FLOWERS"...

Consistency is one of the most difficult things for coffee farmers to achieve because conditions are constantly changing.  It requires hard work and adaptation. Grit. It’s what I look for when we partner with a coffee producer. Hunapu (translates to “place of flowers” and is the indigenous name for a local volcano) has been one of the most successful coffee projects I have seen, mostly because year in and year out the quality of Hunapu coffees is so high.

With the help of agronomist Luis Pedro Zelaya (also the owner of the Bella Vista mill), surrounding farmers were able to organize and increase their coffee quality.  This increase in quality has allowed them to secure higher and more sustainable premiums for their coffees. And that is what Giv Coffee is all about.
