where does our coffee come from
Farmers from the DABOV Specialty Coffee family
The coffees that our coffee hunter Jordan Dabov chooses for you are produced by farmers who follow the path of sustainable development in their farms. Most of them are among the best farmers in their country. They love coffee. They live with coffee.
Their world is not the world of quick, easy and secure profits made with the expense of good quality. They consider the green coffee beans their golden treasure. And they methodically go through all the steps from planting to processing the crop and having as a result specialty coffee – which makes only 5% of the coffee production worldwide.
Here we will introduce you to all farmers who we proudly call the Dabov Specialty Coffee family.
