The Laurina variety

The Laurina variety is a coffee plant known for its exceptional flavor quality and rarity. The Laurina plant is a natural variant of Arabica coffee and is sometimes referred to as "Bourbon Pointu".

The Laurina plant is known for its unique leaves, which are smaller than other coffee plants and have a distinctive reddish hue. The coffee cherries that come from the Laurina plant are also smaller than other varieties and are yellowish in color.

The Laurina beans have a very special taste that is often described as fruity, floral and citrusy. They also have lower caffeine levels than other types of coffee and are often preferred by people who are sensitive to caffeine.

Our standard: transparent coffee

We trade all our coffees as transparently and directly as possible. But, trust is good, control is better. So convince yourself and check our transparent price calculation from Adam (see graphic in the pictures). You can also find out what price (FOB price) we pay the farmers compared to the world market and fair trade price. The FOB price is the price farmers have received for their labor and effort up to the time the coffee is shipped for export from the country of origin. The FOB price thus includes all costs associated with the production of a coffee in the country of production. All other costs such as transport to the roasting plant by ship, road or rail as well as customs duties and taxes are borne by us as the roasting plant in addition to the FOB price. Our step to make transparent and fair coffee accessible to everyone and thus revolutionize the coffee market, which is characterized by opacity.
