1000 TREE LOT AT EL FÉNIX OR LA SENSITIVA

  • Naming rights 
  • Input on processing 
  • Coffee from the first harvest
  • First offer to buy each season
  • This is regarding a new 1000-tree rare varietal lot

These are rewards with huge ongoing value for a specialty coffee roastery, a World Barista Championship competitor, or for a specialty cafe with a great relationship with a roaster and the desire to get more deeply involved at origin. Included in this price are 10 X 24kg vac-packed boxes from the first harvest (ready in about three years after planting). 

This is not a deed to land, you are not buying the trees and a lease. How this works is that in exchange for supporting this project we will source a rare variety of seeds, propagate, plant, fertilise, shade, and develop this new lot in your name, your coffee company's name, or any name you’d like. {1} 

A sign is erected in the new lot displaying your name, and your lot is labelled on our physical farm map at the community wet mill, and on our online map of the farm. Of course, you are added to our “wall of founders”, probably with a slightly larger font than normal too. The font may be Comic Sans though, so there is that to deal with.

You are invited to come and learn about coffee processing, and to run experiments with us at El Fénix community wet mill in the third year, leading up to the first harvest (flights not included, but food and accomodation provided). As the first season draws near we will process the cherries from your lot in different ways and if you aren't with us, we will send you the resulting samples for cupping. 

Based on the pre-harvest samples, you can choose, with our guidance, how you would like the main harvest processed (honey, washed, natural, underwater sometimes, no oxygen, saison, champagne yeast, mixed...). 

From this main harvest, we will give you 10 x 24kg vac-packed boxes of milled, sorted, and screened green raw material, free of charge, as this will be about the right value ($/kg) to pay you back for believing in us (divide the reward price by 240 to see the price per kg to see what we mean), before you factor in the value of the access to education and marketing through having this lot always referred to as [your name here]. {2} 

Ongoing, you will receive the first opportunity each season to purchase coffee from this lot, at market rates, however with no obligation to buy. You can choose to purchase all production from [insert your name here] to secure exclusivity each season. 

The lots are located in El Fénix and La Sensitiva. La Sensitiva is a farm located in the same area as El Fénix and has similar shade and topographic conditions. The most important thing of this farm is the shaded structure available which is very rare in the area. That is why we joined forces. La Sensitiva is part of this community wet mill and hub project.

More detail:
{1} We reserve the right to veto names that are offensive. There are children around. At the same time, we hope one of you names a lot something ridiculous
{2} Shipping not included, as rates world-wide differ widely. We can organise shipping for you once we know where you need the coffee sent for roasting, and as we export to a few key places there is the chance you can piggy-back your pallet-loads with our other customer's shipments. Flick us a message with your location if you'd like a quote.
