The Sumac Warmi is another good example of a coffee both good on the palate and good for the producers. The marriage of these two types of 'good' makes us love our industry.
"The complexity of this coffee caught me off guard. I was expecting something more quiet and easy. But this coffee has nice layers and waves. It was a pleasant surprise."
- Joe Evans, President
Sumac Warmi is a women's lot from the Union y Fe Cooperative. The co-op has a strong micro-lot program to emphasize quality of particular farmers, and Sumac Warmi ("Beautiful Women" in the indigenous language) is one of those lots.
It is comprised of the highest quality coffee grown by the co-op's 50 women members and is meant to highlight the skill of these farmers as well as generate income that can go to quality of life improvements for the co-op members.
