Have you heard of our Marketplace?! That’s another amazing feature our customers receive when they get a Bellwether Roaster!
Every coffee we sell in our Marketplace App comes with multiple roast profiles custom-made for those coffees by our roasting experts. Bellwether-created profiles span the spectrum from light roast to dark, offering something for everyone. As soon as your coffee arrives, you can roast it on your Bellwether Roaster.
With Bellwether, anyone can purchase responsibly-sourced coffees to roast in minutes, not months.
Costa Rica Farmers Project
This is the first year Bellwether has worked with Farmers Project and the first time we’ve offered a coffee from Costa Rica in our Marketplace. We were excited to work with this group, not only because of the delicious coffee but also because of the mission behind the Farmers Project. The five farms involved in Farmers Project have joined together to build a sustainable future and sell high-quality coffee at prices that will allow them to grow and flourish.
Quality Coffee and Sustainable Practices
Farmers Project was founded by Jonathan Jost and Marianella Baez Jost of Café Con Amor. When they gave up their corporate jobs to follow their passion as coffee farmers in Costa Rica, they were struck by how hard local farmers worked, only to sell their coffee for prices that could not sustain the most basic lifestyle.
The Farmers Project was started to help local farmers in Costa Rica sell their coffee for a fair price to support their workers, their farms, and their families. Sharing this vision, the five farms that make up this group share knowledge and learnings with one another and export their specialty coffee together. This blend represents their collective efforts towards a sustainable and equitable future.
This blend is imported directly from the Farmers Project group and consists of coffees from the following farms: Cafe con Amor, Zalmari Estate, El Greco, Cloza, and Sircof.
Their mission is “to cultivate quality coffee using sustainable practices and to establish long-term relationships with buying partners who believe in doing business with integrity and fairness in mind”.
