Good things continue to come from 5 de junio, a cooperative of determined farmers in the rugged mountains of Madriz in Nicaragua. Mostly, they are coming via Counter Culture Coffee, which is offering four different coffees from 5 de junio:
- a special-process single-origin espresso,
- a single-varietal microlot,
- an organic lot, and
- a Swiss Water decaf.
(Counter Culture is even offering a 5 de junio t-shirt.)
We have had the pleasure of accompanying 5 de junio since 2008 under our CAFE Livelihoods project, and supporting some of their successful innovations to improve coffee quality. Congratulations to everyone involved in bringing these coffees to market. We look foward to trying the new Counter Culture offerings soon.
