The Alce Nero strong mocha blend is Fairtrade certified

The Alce Nero Fairtrade blend for mocha machines is a robust arabica blend cultivated by groups of farmers in Latin America, including members of Profecoop in Nicaragua and Cooperative Norandino in Peru. 

The coffee is lightly toasted and modified atmosphere packaged. Packaging is fitted with an aroma-saving valve which preserves the identity and all the strength of the original flavour. Aroma: robust, strong and full-bodied, with persistent cocoa notes which linger after tasting; the Nicaragua arabica softens the bitter edge with toasted bread and vanilla notes. The hidden acidity can be identified in the form of caramelised, aromatic notes.

Narrative Label

Arabica coffee generally originated in Ethiopia, south-eastern Sudan and northern Kenya, while coffea canephora (robusta) comes from, and is very widespread in, west Africa, Asia and Indonesia. While the arabica plants prosper in mountainous areas, so at altitudes of between 1000 and 2000 metres, robusta plants grow at altitudes between sea level and 600 metres and at temperatures of 24-29°C. They are very resistant in hot and damp climates, hence the name “robusta”. Arabica coffee has a rich aroma and is very fragrant, light and slightly sour, while robusta coffee has a more marked flavour and greater body. Our strong organic coffee is a blend of arabica and robusta varieties.

Peru and Nicaragua. The producers of this coffee are members of Cooperativas Sin Fronteras, an international organisation that promotes the principles of quality, wholesomeness and sustainability and which, to date, involves more than 14,000 families of small producers in Latin America. Alce Nero is a member of Coop. Sin Fronteras, together with Cooperativa Norandino in Peru and Prodecoop in Nicaragua, produce this organic, Fairtrade certified arabica coffee.

Arabica coffee is grown in the shade. It is essential to maintain the right temperatures and humidity levels on a coffee plantation. This is why it is grown in the shade of other fruit trees or woody plants, to protect the coffee plantation from the sun. This method of coffee production is essential so as to protect the biodiversity as well as offer the farmer protection against the sun during harvesting.
