Through our inspiring and heart-full collaboration with Erica and Nelson of The Mother Earth Restoration Trust, we are honoured to be able to present this Sacred Offering from the Four Peoples, in The Heart of the World, Colombia.
It is with great love and reverence for our Earth Mother that we offer you these respected coffee beans direct from the home of the Four Peoples of the Earth, La Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, Colombia. From the spiritual perspective of these peoples, Coffee is another child of the Mother Earth and therefore each plant is cultivated with cultural and spiritual values, that preserve the sacred balance of Nature and sustain Life on the planet. This coffee is seen as a woman as She interacts with the World cultivating Positivity in those who connect with Her. She is prepared as a healing remedy to help remind us of our Oneness, serving to bring us back into Unity as Peoples of the Earth.
52% of the proceeds from your purchase go directly back to the indigenous communities who cultivate the coffee.
Nurturing the Seed from Tree to Cup this speciality coffee has a medium body, dark chocolate with a smooth mouth-feel and sweet after-taste. The medium roast brings out hints of raw sugar cane and caramel.
“When the coffee begins to blossom, we make the spiritual offerings for those flowers; we make the offerings to the rain so it nourishes her in a gentle way; we make offerings to the wind so the plants are not blown down; offerings are done to the hail so the cherries on the tree are not damaged. We fulfil our sacred responsibility and honour the spirit of the coffee (and all seeds); this is what good quality coffee beans are to us.”

Words from The Elders of the Four Peoples regarding the preparation that goes into making this special Coffee available to the World:
Although both masculine and feminine coffee plants are vital to the whole and both are accordingly tended to in their respective roles, it is the female plant that is called to interact with peoples of the Earth in all corners of the world. She gives the flowers that bear fruit in the form of cherries to be harvested and then prepared to be ingested with a respectful awareness that She is another child of the Mother Earth; whose Spirit of Positivity calls out for Unity in collective consciousness.
This woman (coffee plant) lives the same cycles a female does throughout her life. She grows and experiences all the stages of development–just as a little girl would–and eventually reaches the stage where She bears Her first fruit. To us, taking this first fruit constitutes a violation of the sacred feminine. This fruit represents Her premenstrual stage in life and preserving it is how we consecrate Her innocence and purity. As She matures, she continues bringing forth flowers, with a greater amount of fruit, or cherries. At this stage, She has become a woman, an adult.
For each of the various stages of Her development, we help Her transition by doing the respective spiritual work and tend to Her needs through ceremonies, through rites of initiation, preparing Her for womanhood.
When the coffee begins to blossom, we make the spiritual offerings for those flowers; we make the offerings to the rain so it nourishes Her in a gentle way; we make offerings to the wind so the plants are not blown down; offerings are done to the hail so the cherries on the tree are not damaged. We fulfil our sacred responsibilities and honour the Spirit of the coffee (and all seeds); this is what good quality coffee beans are to us.
