Arnulfo Leguizamo, the son of a coffee farmer, began his own coffee farming journey some 20 years ago. From the beginning, he's been committed to producing the best coffee possible while remaining environmentally responsible.
At Finca Primavera, Arnulfo and his family are dedicated to protecting water sources and natural wildlife and habitats. His plan to steward his land without contamination fuels his practice of using non-chemical fertilizers on his coffee plants.
In 2011, Finca Primavera won first prize at the Cup of Excellence. A member of Associacion Los Naranjos, a 40-family cooperative in the famed Huila Department of Southwestern Colombia, Arnulfo says:
“I have to do things with love, dedication, and with the support of my wife and my children.”
Ethically sourced specialty coffee: Our specialty coffee selection is carefully curated to take your tastebuds on an adventure. We place a major focus on traceable coffee sources to support family businesses and farmers that adhere to international standards on sustainability, better pricing, and quality.
Zero Waste Roasting: Our coffee is roasted using locally collected, leftover coffee grounds in the UK. The collected coffee grounds are turned into coffee logs, which are then used as a form of biofuel to power the coffee roaster. Any leftover heat is rerouted to heat the warehouse.
100% Plastic Free & Compostable: Alpaca Coffee is 100% plastic-free, from our labels and our bags, all the way to our shipping boxes and compostable tape. Our coffee pouches are also home compostable. Once you’re done, you can rip them up and pop them in your council food waste bin or your home compost.
- Offsetting Our Carbon Footprint: For every 10 bags of coffee sold, Alpaca Coffee will plant one tree in the Amazon Rainforest with the leading environmental NGO - One Tree Planted. By doing so, we offset any carbon that is emitted along our coffee supply chain and support local communities.
Any tips or key information to help shops sell to consumers?
- Store coffee out of direct sunlight in a cool, dry place
- Completely plastic free and compostable coffee bags
- To dispose of our bags simply tear it up and add to the council food waste bin, or to the home compost
