So maybe you’re not one of those people who really. loves. fall. Maybe you don’t break out your caramel scented candles right after Labor Day, or plan your Halloween costume months in advance or Instagram every phase of the changing foliage. That’s OK; we don’t all look good in flannel. But here’s one autumn staple you can reclaim: the pumpkin spice latte.
We have recounted in past blog posts the level of dedication and skill it takes to produce coffee of this calibre, and we’ve written of the high import we place on compensating our farmers well. But we haven’t touched on where exactly, once we (and you!) pay top dollar for our coffee, the money goes. The livelihood of our farmers and their employees is important to us, so on our last visit to Panama we talked to Wilford about the culture of Elida Estate, and more specifically an organization he has partnered with called Casa Esperanza.
