This farmer cooperative sprung out of a fairly recent land reform movement, which enabled farmers to have relatively large plots. Mejillones producers own 4-8 hectares, (10-20 acres) which is large in terms of small-scale coffee farmers. 

Wet processing is done individually on site, and once the coffee parchment has been fully sun-dried on patios, the producers bring their sacks to the Mejillones central warehouse. 10% of Mejillones profits are donated to community education and healthcare programs.

Taste notes of banana nut bread and orange zest flavors with a creamy, medium body. You’ll find a darn tasty coffee with a darn worthwhile mission.

I have been a subscriber since their launch, having been introduced to Better Grounds at a coffee festival. I have enjoyed every monthly selection so far! Their service is a great choice for anyone who, like me, wants easier access great quality coffee and anyone who might feel overwhelmed trying to look into the sourcing bonafides of different brands. I appreciate that they do this work for their clients, and also support different roasters who are doing good work.
