Respect Makes Better-Tasting Coffee: Tropical Mountains

Published on Mar 7 2019 3:15 PM in A-Brands tagged: Trending Posts / Coffee / Sustainability / peru / Tropical Mountains

Tropical Mountains believes that respecting coffee trees, local farmers and the environment all lead to a mind-blowing cup of coffee, with a flavour that is truly gourmet.

Sustainable, Organic Coffee

In the coffee manufacturer's small, family-owned farm in Peru, it is considered that nature knows best.

Therefore, its coffee trees are grown under the tropical sun, well protected by the shade of the native flora.

The company never uses any chemicals, as they can damage the surrounding ecosystem.

The beans are hand-picked by local farmer Antonio and his colleagues.

The company also provides adequate support to its farmers and their families.

The Harvest

The precious harvest is also handled with great care, and the beans are roasted slowly to bring out the best flavour, which ensures a more balanced, healthier cup of coffee that is also vegan-friendly.

A part of Tropical Mountains' harvest is delivered in Nespresso-compatible capsules.

The brand also manufactures its own capsules, which are fully garden compostable, thanks to the innovative, specially designed packaging.

About Tropical Mountains

Tropical Mountains was founded in 2006 by Swiss philanthropist Thomas Schwegler and his Peruvian wife, Gisella.

The company's premium coffee originates from their own family-run farm in the Western Andes.

The company is committed to investing 3% of its turnover into the local village, supporting schools and vital community projects.

Tropical Mountains' sustainable production method and its complete value chain have been certified by the World Fair Trade Organisation and the PE-BIO-149 label for its organic farming methods.
