Maker: Keia & Martyn
We met Keia & Martyn at a TedX event here in Portland. It was a rainy day and we were very grateful for their hot coffee stand right across from us! We learnt about the care and intentional approach to their coffee. We are very lucky to have so many excellent coffee roasters here in Portland. They share their
Not only do they bring in their favorite organic coffee from around the world, they purposefully buy from farmers that not only produce quality coffee cherry but also support their workers and give back to their individual communities and environment.
About the Coffee:
Guatemala Lázaro Constanza
This is a coffee from Lázaro’s parcel in Agua Dulce. (Lázaro also goes by Lacho!) His father’s name is Jesus. Jesús’ family began the tradition in coffee many years ago, when Jesús’ father (also named Jesús) purchased a small piece of land in the lush and much-famed lands of La Libertad in Huehuetenango in 1975. The younger Jesús took control of this parcel in 1986, and has been working it for many decades, working with passion and dedication towards a focus on high-quality coffee. His sons Daniel and Lázaro learned from him.
Today, both Lázaro and Daniel’s farms have a focus on quality coffee. Lázaro instructs workers to selectively pick ripe coffee cherries, and he carefully manages the fermentation regime with controlled drying.
