We are at 169% funded!
This means the cupping lab and micro dry-mill can be built this first year also, creating a space for farmers to roast and taste their own coffees alongside the potential buyers from overseas. This means we can be as direct and transparent as possible. Thank you all so much. At 200% we will be able to build spaces to accommodate visitors too. We think we'll be needing more than the current single shower.
Just a quick message about the trees for those who have backed the Kickstarter. As you know, for joining this project right at the start, we are planting at least one coffee tree in your name at El Fénix. As the campaign closes, you will receive a request for the names and messages for the trees. Until then, we've made an "I'm a founder" poster for you to download and print. Plus here is a little Christmas tree/coffee tree gif for you to share. If you would like to buy multiple trees gifts, adjust your pledge to the total amount that includes your chosen reward and how many extra trees you'd like (e.g. $80 = 4 trees, or $6020 = a big rare lot, plus a tree).
Thank you again so much for helping to build the community coffee wet mill and hub. We are so happy to have you along for the journey and can't wait to get started.
