"This coffee is a collection of smaller lots from producers around the town of Gigante in the Huila Department of Colombia. Coffees are processed through small washing stations at each farm and then dried on raised beds under parabolic covers, a dome like greenhouse that protects the drying cherries from rain while heating the air up as the sun warms the building. Ritual celebrates the return of this perennial offering with it's fruit forward complexity and remarkable sweetness."
Ritual Coffee Roasters prides itself on sourcing from smallholder farmers, paying sustainable base prices, and providing financial incentives for hitting quality targets. This relational practice represents not only a promise to partner with producers long term but it drives quality right into our kitchens and nooks. Sure, there's a lot of science, procedures and maticulous details that impact the flavor and quality in the both unroasted and roasted coffee, before you grind and brew but that hasn't stopped them from making that conversation and it's results approachable for the everyday coffee drinker. Bringing that kind of value is an intentional practice from helping to give coffee producing regions the ability to reinvest in their farms, to creating better coffee for everyone; starting from that special little seed to your morning ritual cup.
