Growing great coffee takes time. Following the picking of the ripe cherries from the trees they must be dried. At My Coffee Farm the cherries undergo a “dry processing” (also known as unwashed or natural coffee), which is the oldest method of processing coffee. Our cherries are cleaned and sorted and then placed in the sun to dry. As they dry, they are periodically turned to ensure even drying. We use no modern-day machines so this drying took weeks to complete. It may take time, but it produces a great coffee bean.
Once the drying was completed, the coffee was milled. This process involved a number of steps, including hulling (i.e., removing what is left of the fruit from the bean), polishing the green coffee bean and cleaning and sorting them—all in preparation for premium roasting.
My Coffee Farm allows individuals to bring their passion for coffee to new heights through ownership of their own coffee harvest, while positively impacting the lives of workers and the community connected to their harvest.
Through a unique program, My Coffee Farm offers coffee lovers the opportunity to own the production of trees planted in one of the most highly regarded coffee growing regions in the world—the Dota Tarrazu region in Costa Rica.
When individuals purchase their own coffee harvest, they receive a Certificate of Ownership and their coffee is delivered in personally branded packaging that reflects their name.
With ownership, textbooks are donated, in the owner’s name, to local schoolchildren who live in Providencia de Dota, a small community near the farm from which the coffee is harvested. Ownership also helps enrich the lives of workers and their families thanks to a commitment to wages and benefits for the men and women who will care for the harvest.
“We’re excited to see that our harvest is now ready for immediate enjoyment by individuals who are looking for the thrill of owning their own coffee harvest. We continue to make textbook donations with each new owner.” said Peter Mastrantuono, founder of My Coffee Farm.
My Coffee Farm has profoundly changed the coffee experience because Americans can now enjoy the unique taste that comes from a blend of great coffee and personal ownership that also helps make the world a little bit better--one morning cup of coffee at a time.
