Shuv Coffee

Recruitment Lot – Washed



This is a community recruitment lot of coffees by young producers in Andes and Sonson, two municipalities in the Antioquia department of Colombia. The Young Producer Program is spearheaded by our buds at Unblended Coffee. One of the many things we really respect about them is their mission to make coffee an exciting career path for young coffee producers by connecting them with local mentorships, education, and specialty coffee markets. This lot specifically is a point of access to recruit new participants to the program, where they work together to contribute to this deliciously consistent, daily drinker of a lot. We are tasting: red apple, citrus, browning sugars and dark chocolate.

12 ounces of whole seed coffee. If you need your coffee ground, we are happy to do so. Just leave us a message in the comments at checkout.

Orders are roasted and shipped every Thursday and/or Friday. Please get your orders in by Wednesday night to ensure for same week shipping.

About the Young Producer Program:

In Unblended’s words:
The Young Producer Program is not just about supporting the youth; it’s about highlighting those who have made a deliberate choice about their lives. They have chosen passion over other options. In this Community Lot, we aim to share our mission and recruit new members to the program. By doing so, we continue to learn about other origins, stories, and challenges faced by coffee producers. The program is a blend of small producers contributing to a larger lot to guarantee quality, year-round availability, and a consistent profile.

About the Varieties:

Caturra is a natural mutation of the Bourbon variety. This mutation grows smaller (called dwarfism) allowing it to be planted closer together and bear more fruit in a smaller space. It was discovered in Brazil in the early 1900s and introduced to Guatemala in the 1940s, but it did not have widespread commercial adoption for almost three decades throughout Central America. Caturra is also known for being one of the parents of the Catimor variety of cultivars, various lines of the coffee-leaf-rust-resistant Timor Hybrid were crossed with Caturra to produce a dwarf plant with rust resistance. Castillo and Colombia are two examples of this.
