Our Take

Next Steps

The harvest progresses in the area with elevations of 1,000 to 1,200 meters above sea level, in this area the first harvest begins in mid to late November. At altitudes from 1,250 to 1,600 masl, harvesting begins in December and from 1,650 to 2,000 masl, harvesting begins in January-February. Coffee farmers are currently preparing their micro mills and drying stations for the 2022-2023 harvest in Mexico.In terms of quality and profiles, we expect a good harvest. In terms of volume, we expect 10-15% compared to the last harvest. We will receive the first samples of the 2022-2023 harvest in late November and early December. As a positive side note, the last few months' rains have also resulted in good cherry development in most areas we work in.The harvest is progressing well and it is expected that the quality and profiles for this new crop will have good characteristics. In terms of volume, an increase of 10 to 15% is expected compared to the last harvest. At Caravela, we hope to receive the first samples of the 2022-2023 crop in late November or early December. The good thing about the harvest has been the rains of the last few months, which have resulted in good cherry development and growth in most of the areas where we are present.

Our Take

Next Steps

Based on field visits and comments from coffee farmers, the rains in Guatemala have not harmed production; on the contrary, in the eastern areas of the country, in departments such as Chiquimula, Zacapa, and El Progreso, they have even been beneficial. This has led to coffee growing in better conditions. In the other areas of Guatemala, coffee fruits are in full development and are beginning their third phase of growth. Farmers are currently controlling weeds and coffee berry borer at their farms.In terms of volume for the 2022-2023 harvest in Guatemala, an increase is expected at the country level. Regarding quality, the quality team expects to receive the first samples in late December to start analysing yields, defects and cup quality. However, growers caution that quality could be affected due to the lack of access to fertiliser, mainly due to the high cost of purchase and transport. At Caravela, we see the harvest as a time when we can work hand in hand with coffee farmers. For example, in carrying out processes and actions to maintain the quality during processing and drying.
Currently, the quality team and the PECA team are on the ground visiting independent producers, associations and coffee cooperatives to introduce them to the Caravela model and provide them with more information about organic and sustainable coffee production. On the other hand, the quality team has been working on calibration exercises to be ready for the next harvest and carries out maintenance work on the equipment to ensure it functions properly. To learn more about Guatemalan coffees available for the next 2023 crop year, visit our Green Global Offering list or contact our Customer Relationship Offices (CROs).


The Facts

Our Take

Next Steps

The harvest is progressing well in Chalatenango, Ahuachapan and other regions where we are currently located. We are not making purchases in the areas where our purchasing warehouses are located. We are waiting for the harvest to begin at the end of November and the coffee to dry in the first weeks of December to begin purchasing from this producing country.We are very pleased and looking forward to harvesting in El Salvador, as the conditions are very good. In the two areas where we are present, the incidence of corn borer and rust is minimal. However, due to the more than 2,000 milligrams of rain reported this year, many farms have lost vehicle access, which in addition to the prices, has made it difficult to get the product to the farms. We will continue to report on quality and available quantities in the coming months. For more information, please contact our Customer Relationship Offices (CROs).We are growing and sharing our model in new areas such as Usulutan, San Miguel, Teotepeque and San Fernando. In addition, this year launched the Programa Siembra y Cosecha, which aims to reward and further recognize the hard work of coffee producers in El Salvador through various benefits and technical assistance.

On the other hand, in Ahuachapan and Chalatenango, 1,500 fruit, timber and shade trees are being delivered to 20 PECA growers as part of a program to promote climate resilience in coffee forests, in collaboration with the central government of El Salvador


The Facts

Our Take

Next Steps

Farmers are focusing on cleaning seedlings or nurseries, and removing/picking ripe coffee cherries that have ripened too early due to rain and coffee berry borer. Many farmers are also applying the last fertilizer. This crop year, coffee farmers in Nueva Segovia and Jinotega will begin harvesting in mid-November. The general harvest, or peak harvest, will take place between December and January, which would mean a 40% harvest advance in the Dipilto, Macuelizo, and Mozonte, and 60% in San Fernando, to name a few.Despite the challenges posed by climate change, quality and quantity are expected to remain consistent in Nicaragua. We continue to establish contracts and supply agreements with our farmer partners in Nueva Segovia and Jinotega, providing financial security and helping to mitigate price fluctuations in the market. Contact our Customer Relationship Offices for more information on coffees and volumes available in Nicaragua for 2022-2023 harvest.Our team is working on the ground with coffee farmers, monitoring the harvest and waiting for both the La Estrella mill in Nueva Segovia and the La Concordia mill in Jinotega to receive a larger quantity of coffee at the beginning of the 2023 harvest year. The quality team participates in calibration meetings and shares its knowledge with the PECA team to continue providing better feedback and service to growers in the 2023 harvest.


The Facts

Our Take

Next Steps

Harvesting progresses differently across Colombia, due to the influence of weather on flowering and ripening. Therefore, a specific time cannot be determined since each region has a different pace and scenario The growers are busy with the work of the coffee cycle such as harvesting, processing, washing and drying in the regions where we are present.Our team in Colombia confirms that the quality is constant despite the drying problems caused by the climate. The volumes of parchment coffee are lower than in previous years, as producers have opted to sell wet parchment coffee, directly affecting the flow of coffee sold in the specialty coffee market. On a positive note, prices have benefited coffee growers, but the weather remains a constant challenge, such as heavy rains and damaged access roads.The PECA team is focused on providing feedback on results both at the purchasing stations and on the farm as we continue to purchase coffee in Colombia. In addition, the PECA team is working to implement various certifications, including Organic, Rain Forest Alliance, and C.A.F.E. It is also responsible for managing and monitoring various projects that arise from roasters donations and sustainability projects.


The Facts

Our Take

Next Steps

Coffee growers continue to advance in harvesting and farm activities. In Zamora, in the southern part of the country, we are currently 96% complete. In Loja, in the north of the country, the producers are working on the fertilization and preparation of the land for new coffee plantations. In Galapagos, on the other hand, farmers have begun to harvest, with 35% progress in harvesting. Farmers expect the crop to peak in mid-November and December.This harvest, the price increases in the market, have created more competitive markets. We have seen the loyalty of our growers who have delivered their harvest to us despite a highly competitive market. This is the result of providing fair and competitive prices and working 365 days a year in the field.

In addition, the main coffee flowering period has already taken place in October and November. Very good flowering has been observed in the northern and southern parts of the country, so a very good harvest is expected this 2023.
The PECA team is constantly visiting our coffee farmers and helping them with nursery establishment, planting, shade regulation, pruning and fertilization.


The Facts

Our Take

Next Steps

The general crop progress in Cajamarca is 99% and in Cusco 97%. There were rains in that October that favoured fertilization, and the water stress and rains are necessary for the flowering stage.

The quality of the coffee is developing positively, with quality grades A, AA, AAA and ML increased compared to 2021. This year, natural processes have been purchased, which has helped to increase the quantities of AAA and ML. In Peru, growers are using these new processes and good results have been recorded by our team. With a small percentage of 1%, the harvest is expected to end in the second week of November.
In Cajamarca, the harvest decreased by 40% compared to the 2021 crop year, but normal coffee deliveries have been recorded at the purchased stations. The first half of September saw the highest percentage of kilos purchased from CPS.

Therefore, as Caravela, we see the commitment of coffee farmers who work with us this 2022. We also see the commitment of the new coffee farmers who will work with us this year and in the years to come. Overall, various trainings have been carried out to obtain better qualities, which will contribute to the development of coffee families. Through the relevant programming with the growers and the field visits, the Quality and PECA team will continue with the annual plan of activities.
This month, 1,749 60-kg bags were exported from Cusco and Cajamarca to the ports of Charleston, New York, Oakland in the United States, and Sydney in Australia

On the ground, the PECA team will continue to conduct visits to growers and provide feedback on harvest and post-harvest issues. This year, the PECA team also supported the quality team in the south of the country at the purchasing warehouses in Chirinos and Yanatile.

Going forward, the PECA team will implement fertilization plans to ensure the 2023 harvest at the growers. Growers are nearing the completion of their coffee harvest, and we will monitor their process so that they can carry out the ""RE-RE"" or phytosanitary picking, which is important to prevent the occurrence of the coffee berry borer in coffee plantations

Finally, in October we had visits from customers in Cajamarca and Cusco, which strengthens business relationships throughout the supply chain and work on the ground.
