Our Royal Roast Coffee is 100% Rainforest Alliance Certified and Fair Trade USA Certified. This is our way to contribute to a better future for people and nature and support sustainability.
Our Micro-lot coffee is sustainably produced, quality coffee that is cultivated from the same climate, soil and altitude. It is processed with care and provides with a unique tasting experience. Royal Roast is harvested from our Santa Izabel Farm and processed in a separate way from the rest of the coffees, to amplify their special qualities and taste.
Our micro-lot coffee is traceable. Traceability is not only becoming more desired but also easier to execute. While most coffee is blended and exported in regional lots, Nobletree can trace lots of coffees from a single acre on our farms. The most traceable lots are often referred to as ‘micro-lots,’ a term that may cause some confusion. Although this term is applied differently around the world, usually micro-lots are single farm coffees, selected for quality.
Micro-lots are selected for their high quality and unique flavor profiles. Our micro-lots are picked and processed entirely separately from the rest of the farm’s lots. Each of these plots vary due to a number of reasons — a different coffee varietal, shade tree and the amount of sunlight received. It also changes with different altitudes within the farm and the direction in which the plot faces. The right combination of these will lead to unique flavors in the coffee, different from the standard taste profile.
