The Story
This coffee comes to us from Ben and Kristy Carlson, who founded the Long Miles Coffee Project in 2011. The Carlsons built a centrally located washing station that serves multiple hills with 60-140 small holder coffee farms, including this coffee from the Nkonge Hill. Their meticulous quality standards have increased coffee quality, bringing high premiums to producers.
