Caravela Coffee

Since 2002, when we opened our first export operation in Colombia, we have focused exclusively on sourcing high quality coffee from Latin America.  Today, we have our own sourcing and exporting operations in 7 countries, from Mexico to Peru. 

With teams on the ground in each of these countries, as well as our import operations in Australia, UK, USA and Taiwan, we control the supply chain from the farm-gate to the roasters door, being able to efficiently deliver a wide selection of coffees to satisfy any coffee roasters needs, be it a consistent blend component, a single-origin with a unique story or an exotic microlot with exciting flavors. 

We have chosen to work primarily with small-holder farmers, as these famers tend to consistently produce some of the best coffees available but traditionally had to sell their coffee to intermediaries or coyotes, never being able to earn full value for their coffees. 

To guarantee the quality and consistency of every single bag we sell, and to pay each grower what they deserve, we separate each lot we purchase and perform rigorous physical and cup quality controls, grading coffees according to cup quality, profile and region.  This also allows us to provide full transparency and traceability to our roaster partners, ensuring a fair game for all.
