Boza Sisters Maragogype Natural Coffee
A super special bean from the super special Boza Sisters! With only a small number of Maragogype plants at their farm, we are incredibly honoured to have their very first lot - a nano-nano lot of only 13kgs in total! Maragogype (Mara-go-heap-aye) is a rare variety first discovered near the Brazilian city of Maragogipe in 1870. Although it can produce amazing quality coffee, it’s not that common as it has a low yield and is susceptible to leaf rust. It has gigantic leaves and large beans which are sometimes referred to as Elephant beans.

Available in our 100g Glass Jars, whole bean only.

The incredible Boza Sisters of Finca San Antonio Amatepec are ambitious change-makers looking to carve a path for themselves and the next generation of coffee producers.

With a focus on shade grown specialty coffee production through sustainable methods and a continued focus on a commitment to the care of the environment and the development of the local community. The farm has been certified by the Rainforest Alliance and holds a rating of 95.75% on average!

The three young sisters: Alexandra, Daniella, and Karla (in order from eldest to youngest), grew up going to the farm every other weekend but were not really involved with the day to day activities. Part of this, they believe, had to do with their gender.

Women are not generally involved in leading a farm so were not ever taught how to do so. Since the 1970s, Finca San Antonio Amatepec was run solely by their father, Carlos. However with time, and as their father aged, realising there was not going to be a son/man to take over the farm after him, he agreed for the sisters to become more involved. They realised that they would have to split the work with their father and have become increasingly involved over the last few years.

They oversaw the new implementations of different Rainforest Alliance strategies, looked after the harvest, and managed more of the marketing and relationship building with buyers. Most importantly, they finally took the necessary steps to process their coffee independently.

They believe that this has been the most important change for their farm in the last few years - and if it were not for their encouragement and support their father would have never taken the jump as this is a very risky but important move for coffee producers to make.

Karla, the youngest of the 3 sisters, is one of the recipients of the 2019-2021 leadership equity and diversity (lead) scholarship program. Lead is aimed at increasing diversity of leadership within the global coffee community by enabling access to professional development resources to people from underrepresented or marginalised communities. We are super proud of Karla and the amazing leader she is becoming within the coffee industry!

We are incredibly grateful to have had the opportunity to build a strong business partnership with the Boza sisters over the past four years.

A premium home-brewed coffee is still less expensive than a cafe

Issue: With the continuing economic uncertainty that COVID brings, many are choosing to tighten the purse strings and are replacing luxuries with cheaper, more basic products.For more: Comunicaffe International
...However, whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a premium home-brewed coffee or tea is still less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go. Many have already taken the time to improve their brewing skills since the outbreak, and so now have the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home. If this isn't you, then there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable options from our range of independents to support you in doing just that. Easy to find and it won’t cost you the earth for these to be delivered.
