We Have The Best Coffee
We have the best coffee. We are selling our coffee as green beans as well as in medium and dark roast. We have special wholesale prices for café’s and shops wanting to support our company and carry our White Frog Café coffee.
The farm is located in the province of Boyacá in the municipality of Chinavita, Colombia. The elevation of the farm is 1700 meters. The variety of coffee is Castillo.
We own a one-hectare plot of land and have 5000 coffee plants on this land. The land is also lush with many kinds of trees and plants including avocado trees, mandarin oranges, banana trees, mango trees, pineapple as well as different species of wood trees giving shade to approx. 60 % of the land.
We have family and neighbors that also have coffee farms that are involved in our coffee project. All of these farms have the same quality, variety and is grown in the same elevation as our farm. All together we have access to approx. 10 000 lbs of coffee including our farm, our family farms, and neighbors in the immediate area.
We have invested in new machinery to lessen the physical damage done by old worn our machinery and are continuously doing any upgrades that we can. We have a unique idea that we feel will benefit the farmers. We know firsthand that the farmers do so much work and at the end of the day they don’t get very good money for their beans. We feel that coffee being imported to Canada and being sold here for top dollar, the farmer deserves to benefit from that. We are starting our own certification we are calling “White Frog Certification, FAIR PAID”. What is fair paid? Any coffee that we bring to Canada from Colombia and sold here in Canada, we will give the farmer of that coffee $.25 per pound to be invested back into their farm to better their farming situation. Ronald is so passionate about helping the other farmers in his area. They are our family, our friends and our neighbors.
He feels so blessed to have been given the opportunity to live and work in Canada and now this huge opportunity to start a business here in Canada that can help his family and neighbors in Colombia is just amazing. We have purchased another piece of land that is 4.8 hectares and we have started 5000 coffee plants by seed that will be planted on this land at the beginning of September. This new crop will be producing beans in approx. 18 months time. From the form of seed to the time of planting and when the coffee produces beans is approx. 25 months.
Helping our Colombian community has been a goal, along with helping our community here in Canada as well. This is where the idea of community fundraisers came to be.
For community fundraisers the coffee is being sold at the retail price of $17 per 340 gram bag. From that $17 a donation of $4 per bag goes to the fundraiser. This is an excellent way to raise money for your group, school, team or someone in need. Signing up for a White Frog Café Fundraising Event will help our communities in both Colombia and Canada. Please contact White Frog Café for more information and to book your upcoming fundraising event.
