Emma Chantre is a member of Asorcafé, an association of smallholding producers in Inzá, Cauca. Asorcafé was founded in 2004 by ten coffee growers who were tired of selling their coffee to local buyers offering prices lower than the national market. Asorcafé works to provide their members with aid for education, job training and healthcare, and our supply partners at Red Fox Coffee Merchants work closely with them to pay the best prices on the market for the top quality lots. With Emma Chantre's coffee we get a silky and sweet cup with flavors of cherry and whipped cream.

Transparency

This is our second year buying coffee from Asorcafé, through our sourcing partners at Red Fox Coffee Merchants, who continue to build on a twelve year relationship with each other. We scored this lot 87 points and purchased 3 70kg bags for $4.75/lb EXW, on a day when the Coffee Commodity price was $2.11/lb.
