Meet Smallholder producers

Drink Coffee Do Stuff brings us this coffee via their import partner, Sustainable Harvest. This is one of SH's Single Village coffees and represents some of the finest in the Relationship Coffee supply chain. It’s produced by smallholder farmers who don’t belong to a co-op, and thus do not have advantages such as organic certification that the larger organizations can offer.

In spite of limitations, these dedicated growers have continued working to improve their coffees and their quality of life, and that diligence shows. They’ve pushed to improve, individually restructuring their farms to achieve better production and higher quality coffee than ever before. Perfect for sipping and savoring the coming spring, this Mizteca single lot, which scored 86+ points, represents the essence of the determination and hope that fuels the hearts of Mexican coffee growers.

Oaxaca, Mexico

In southern Mexico, where the country narrows and turns to the east, some really great coffee grows. On the southern slope of the Sierra de Oaxaca range, gazing out on the blue, blue Pacific, is the home of the Oaxaca coffee growing region. Farmers here typically own less than 2 hectares (4.4 acres), and the 2-6 bags of coffee they grow annually is often their only cash crop. Many growers in Oaxaca belong to indigenous people groups and cultures, and this has been key in their embrace of traditional growing techniques and organic practices.

Oaxacan coffees, also marketed under the label “Oaxaca Pluma,” are highly regarded in the coffee industry for their flavor and quality. Farmers here organize coffee cooperatives in order to pool their resources. Doing so not only gives them better access to financing options to improve their operations, it also helps them create more presence in the marketplace with importers so they can receive fair prices for their coffees.

Drink Coffee Do Stuff

DRINK COFFEE DO STUFF is a specialty coffee roastery in Truckee, CA, conceived at 12,000 ft on the Saas-Fee glacier of the Swiss Alps. The vision for DCDS is rooted in the professional snowboarding career of founder Nick Visconti, who traveled the world crushing the snowboarding circuit and drinking coffee from Switzerland to Patagonia. This roving lifestyle birthed an intentional roasting company centered on the intersection of extraordinary coffee and extraordinary life.

Founded in 2017 in Visconti's hometown of Truckee, DCDS is distinguished by its focus on 'altitude coffee'—coffee grown on hill and mountain slopes throughout the equatorial zone and roasted at 6000 feet in the Sierra Nevada mountains—which results in a sweeter, more subtle cup. Relationships matter too at DCDS, not just because Visconti marks his friendships in coffee cups and boards, but because they are the foundation of a life lived well.

We all have the ability to live our own versions of an extraordinary life, and 2019 Good Food Award-winner DCDS celebrates this truth. As Visconti says, "We wear our hats backwards, live our lives forwards, and ride our boards downwards!"
