In Brazil, in one of the regions whose major vocation is coffee production, Danesi have chosen a simply unique coffee, produced by adopting special practices and traditions on coffee growing and processing methods passed on several generations. A superior quality coffee produced with great attention to the territory and to the people cultivating these lands.
Ethiopia is the cradle of Coffea arabica and in the Sidama region Danesi have selected a fully traceable coffee coming from the Bombe mountains, which is amongst the best suited sites to grow quality coffee. The smallholders from Shanta Wene village grow their coffee cherries up to 2050 meters of altitude in small plot of maximum 2-hectares. Once ripen, the farmers deliver their cherries to the Ayla washing station where they’re processed adopting alternative methods to give the coffee all its flavor complexity and sweetness.
Coffee beans originating from Guatemala are some of the best worldwide, thanks to the specific topographic and climatic conditions of the country. Here, several years ago Danesi has started a direct relation with the small producers of some rural mountain communities where we buy coffee produced by them. Their aim is to contribute to the economic development of these communities and at the same time to ensure that their high-quality coffee could reach international markets.
In Rwanda, Danesi partnered up with a cooperative of small growers where they source a very distinctive coffee produced with zero impact on the environment and of superior quality. What inspired them to make this choice is the role attributed to the women within the cooperative and their involvement in decision-making processes. We believe that empowering women producers in the Rwanda coffee sector will lead to the strengthening of the economic and social conditions of farmers’ communities.
