Cocoa powder. Honey sweetness. Notes of nuts and apricot and brown sugar. This coffee is an easy drinker, with sweet, mild acidity and caramelized body. Definitely yum.
About Shared-X Partner Farmers of Peru
Cue drum roll: this coffee represents a big moment for One Village Coffee as well as for grower Tony Salas. That’s because Finca Matapalo is the first vertically integrated coffee they’ve released since merging with their Peruvian partners Shared-X. Shared-X is a hub of farmers like Tony (and David Riendo, pictured right) who are working together to impact the areas of community, environment, and health.
Shared-X’s network of partner farms adhere to their core values that include innovation, transparency and that most precious commodity, courage. Backed by impact investors, Shared-X is working to create access to markets and share innovative agronomic techniques with smallholder farmers, increasing crop yields. And of course, as quality of crop and yield increase, so do the farmers’ quality of life.
One Village Coffee
One Village Coffee was born of an encounter. That may sound a bit dramatic, but when owners Steve and Lois Hackman traveled to Africa and Honduras in the early 2000’s, what they saw captivated their hearts: a community of people working together to better themselves and those around them. “Coffee, which is deeply tied to the earth and has amazing powers to connect people, quickly became a way for us to create our own village.” And in 2007 they did exactly that. First in the Hackman’s basement in small-town Souderton, Pennsylvania, where they roasted coffee on a 5-pound roaster, then in their garage. When they outgrew the garage in 2009, they moved down the road a couple of miles to their current facility.
“Our mission since 2007 has been to connect growers, roasters, and coffee drinkers through our quality coffee and commitment to stewardship. We recognize that One Village Coffee would not exist without the people that drink our coffee, and the people that grow it. We want to honor the farmers and the whole supply chain by roasting the most delicious coffee we can.”
A family business, One Village Coffee’s ten-person team is approachable and humble. Whether they’re helping Honduran farmers build beehives, teaching coffee folk everything from brewing methods to cafe design, or giving back to their local community by providing 100,000 homeless Philadelphians with coffee every year, they create community, one cup at a time.
