Yopno Uruwa Som coffee has arrived!

| December 8, 2011

We are happy to report that our first shipment of coffee from the Yopno Uruwa Som conservation area has arrived in Seattle. Knowing the journey that this coffee has made is truly inspiring — from the remote mountains of the Finisterre Range in the Huon peninsula to our warehouse on Pike St. in Seattle. This would not have been possibile without the dedication and work of so many people, including the farmers who have embraced the program and revitalized their trees, members of the Coffee Industry Corporation who provided training and guidance, and all of the amazing people involved with the Tree Kangaroo Conservation Program. We are in the evaluation and development stages of preparing this coffee for release, and so far our cuppings have shown a sweet, delicate coffee with flavors of cocoa, tropical fruit, and citrus.  We hope to have this Farm Direct coffee ready to roast and serve in early 2012.
