Madremonte is a name inspired by the woman who contribute to this coffee and a little bit of Colombian mythology. This is a coffee from female producers who are given a premium for delivering quality coffees, the program is run by our partner of many years now, Coocentral.
The Madremonte (Mother of the forest) or Marimonda according to Colombian mythology is usually regarded as protector of nature and the forest animals and unforgiving when humans enter their domains to alter or destroy them. She can be identified with Mother Nature and Mistress of the Animals.
This coffee is sweet and juicy with a velvety mouth feel.
We paid $10.10USD per kg (raw/unroasted) on this one (before weight loss & every other expense). By comparison that is significantly higher than the commodity price of coffee at the moment (currently $2.16 USD per kg on 09/06/20). That said pricing is only part of this story. We believe that effective sustainability will come from trust building relationships with farmers and this is why we love working with Nordic Approach to source most of our coffees like this one.
