You swiped right and your first date is now in the books. Problem is, you have nothing to wear and your date chose a picnic at Balboa Park (that’s cool, we dig picnics). Normally this wouldn’t be such a big problem, but they’re bringing a red and you’re stuck with the pairing. So you head to Whole Foods and snag your go-to, strawberries dipped in dark chocolate. Nicely done. Are you feeling it? We are ;)
About the Village
Mr. Gee has the best smile in the world! He is also the village chief to Setapoung village, which has twenty-two JCFC member families. We couldn’t be more proud to serve you this village’s coffee as they are one of the most involved, kind, and attention-to-detail oriented communities on the Bolaven Plateau. Because of this, is almost impossible not to smile while drinking this coffee!
TRACEABLE AND TRANSPARENT COFFEE TRADE
The Jhai Coffee Farmer's Cooperative (JCFC) is an organically assembled group of 298 families, in 18 different villages, from 4 different ethnic groups, (Jeru, Lao, Bo, & Khmu), working together to produce some of the finest specialty coffee in all of South East Asia and certainly the most delicious coffee of Laos.
The goal of the JCFC’s traceable and transparent payment system is to allow all members the ability to capture the full value of their exported green beans, which nearly triples farmer income when compared to the prevailing trade options.
In the 2016/17 season, farmer income increased by an average of 270%. For Seven Seas, the traceability and transparency program has allowed a deeper and more meaningful relationship between coffee producers and you guys, the coffee drinkers.
