Metric - Honduras Comunión

$20.25

"La Comunion was born out of a visit to one of our favorite producing groups in Colombia, Azahar. Their pickers project (Los Recolectores) is lead with a simple mission: to pay smallholders microlot pricing for a single-origin, community blend. This program incentivizes smallholders to take a % of their profits to pay higher daily rates to their pickers (in this case, usually each other's neighbors). In addition to offering more support to one another, paying pickers adequately for their hard work helps maintain and build a high level of quality. After several years of bearing witness of the direct impact this program had in this community, it became clear to me the importance that we can make by replicating this program at other origins.

With that in mind, I connected with our good friend, Benjamin Paz, whom we've had a great relationship since 2015 harvest! He helped us create a Santa Barbara community blender project with a group of producers already in our fold. The result: La Comunion, a new project focusing our efforts with 3 of our current producing partners (Alma Pineda, Dionisio Rivera & Cecilio Aguilar) and giving us the ability to purchase their crops in their entirety while also ensuring a minimum price paid to the producer of $4.00 F.O.B.

For Metric, the goal of La Comunion is multi-faceted. Bulking coffees from smallholders allows us to purchase entire crops; this guarantees higher premiums with the understanding that the increase in pay will result in better payment to the picker. On the flavor-side, this project allows us to craft a regional blend based on variety and processing, resulting in a profile with uniqueness and quality of a single origin at the consistency of a blender for what will be a surefire crowd favorite"
