Duromina, which means "improve their lives," formed in 2010. Through the Technoserve Coffee Initiative, this cooperative received technical assistance and financing to begin processing fully washed coffees. The result has been exceptionally clean and complex lots, year after year. Brew this one up for a buttery cup full of nectarine, honey, and bergamot notes.

ABOUT THE BRAND
At Stumptown we take such great care over not only the roasting and preparation of our coffee, but especially the way in which we source the product, and the relationship that we have with our producing partners at origin. You may have heard the term 'Direct Trade' in relation to specialty coffee, and while that term has become rather ubiquitous these days, it was actually our founder Duane who coined the phrase to describe his philosophy of ethical, social and sustainable purchasing. It is what underpins our recent BCorp certification, and has allowed us to build one of the most environmentally and socially sustainable platforms for purchase of coffee and producer-led co-investment at source.
