Mariano Mejía, Producer
Pacas and Catuaí grown at 1400-1600 masl.

Copo Mico has been an important part of our roster since 2011 and is known for its unique green tea and currant jam characteristics. Under the careful direction of farm owner Mariano Mejia, the Mejia family has been able to make an astounding comeback from severe damages to their crop after leaf rust hit in 2012. Copo Mico's exportable production has always been small, and rarely surpasses 20 bags. In order to demonstrate their commitment and initiative, Mariano and his son Mario planted a new portion of land with yellow catuai and red pacas, and constructed an impressive raised drying bed in 2014.

We have been able to work with the Mejia family through financial struggles, and continue to encourage their participation in specialty coffee production by maintaining pricing that is equivalent to their quality as it continues to improve. Our milling and exporting partner Benjamin Paz (of Beneficio San Vicente) has been instrumental in helping us to convince Mariano to deliver cherry each season for evaluation, and the results keep getting better every year.

  12oz of whole beans. Our premium coffee beans are roasted daily at our Greenpoint, Brooklyn roastery. We ship only whole bean coffee and do not grind the beans prior to shipping.  Coffee is packaged in sealed valve bags.  We roast to order!
