Bean Market’s September subscription featured Artful Dodger Coffee Trading Co. Artful Dodger featured the Mutana Hill, from Long Miles Coffee Project that I had the chance to interview. This coffee was sourced through Handpickers.
DETAILS OF ORIGIN:
Long Miles Coffee Project is a coffee producer in Burundi, and is run by a small American family. They were not always producers, but rather a family with a dream. They dreamed of facilitating direct and meaningful relationships between coffee roasters and coffee growers by producing great coffee and telling the story of the farmers who grow it.
However, after some time sourcing coffee in Burundi, they realised the only way they could live their dream, consistently deliver high quality coffee, and control the price their farmers were being paid was to build a washing station. With the help of friends and devoted blog readers, they were able to sell their first harvest of coffee before it even hit the drying tables. They are now a vital part of the community.
In an article I contributed to Perfect Daily Grind – I briefly chatted to Kirsty, Co-Founder of the Long Miles Coffee Project. Read the full article here.
Artful Dodger Coffee Trading Co is a small roastery located in Elsternwick, Melbourne. They came to roasting their own coffee after head roaster Dan, developed a passion for coffee and wanted to know everything and anything to do with coffee. Artful Dodger wanted to be able to control and educate their coffee drinkers on what they had in their cup. Artful Dodger’s aim is to maintain a small coffee company feel and be able to support their customers in learning and sharing their passion for coffee.
