More information about Avontuur Espresso
Our organic AVONTUUR coffee, imported directly from Nicaragua, is a holistically sustainable product that benefits the environment through the clean transport chain at sea and on land, and the producers in Nicaragua through the ecologically solidary cultivation.
But also in terms of taste, the high-quality Arabica coffee convinces with its strong and full-bodied flavor with a fine hint of chocolate.
Grown in small plots under shady trees in the highlands of Nicaragua, the ripe coffee cherries were hand-picked for the best coffee quality and dried into high-quality beans. In the traditional Bremen roastery Lloyd Caffee, these beans could then be gently hand-roasted into green coffee and espresso beans, preserving the diversity of flavors.
Transported solely by wind power on our cargo ship AVONTUUR, the organic beans were sailed from Central America to Hamburg without emitting any harmful emissions. Unloaded by hand from the AVONTUUR in Hamburg, brought to temporary storage by cargo bikes and transported by electric transporter to the Lloyd Caffee roastery in Bremen, our AVONTUUR coffee is one of the most environmentally friendly specialty coffees in Germany.
Our organic beans come from a self-governing smallholder farmers' association from the COSATIN/TIERRA NUEVA cooperative in Boaca, Nicaragua. The controlled organic cultivation preserves the fertility of the soil and also the health of the farmers.
Our AVONTUUR coffee was purchased directly from the cooperative from the Network of Central American Coffee Import and Export (MITKA) at a stable minimum price plus structural and organic premium and imported by freighter. The smallholder association can be maintained through this principle of solidarity agriculture, which in the long term can improve living conditions in Boaco. In fact, the price we pay for the high-quality organic beans is higher than both the world market price and even the Fair Trade price for coffee.
The organic certification of our company is not yet completed, so that our sailed AVONTUUR coffee does not yet adorn an organic seal, although it is 100% certified organic and ecofair.
