“Haitian Delight The Coffee You Have Been Waiting For”
TH4J has re-launched the coffee business, We purchased a Commercial Coffee Roasting Machine and accessories. This new roaster will give us the ability to produce the highest quality roasted coffee every time we make a new batch, and will guarantee consistency across our whole product line.
See our coffee roasting video here.
Also remember that all the proceeds from the sale of our coffee goes to support our children in our Orphanage and Schools in Les Basse, and other Villages in Haiti. Thank You for your support of our Haiti mission.
On our trip to Haiti in April 2014, we purchased, transported and installed this pulper in the mountains to prepare for our next coffee harvest in September.
We have now raised $1,200.00 toward our goal!!
Thank you to everyone who donated.
In agriculture, a pulper is a machine designed to remove pulp i.e. the soft flesh from agricultural produce. For example, in coffee growing the ripe, red cherries are picked from the coffee bushes and prior to fermentation and later drying the soft pulp needs to be removed (otherwise a potentially uncontrollable fermentation/rot will occur). In the case of coffee the pulping is normally done in a pulper that is either hand-cranked or engine-driven; the beans are emptied into an elevated hopper and then dropped through a narrow slot within which they come into contact with a rotating spiked drum that removes the pulp or flesh. Again in the case of coffee, the sticky beans that result from this process then have to be washed, fermented, washed again and dried prior to further processing (milling to remove the parchment) and then roasting.
We have planted over 16,000 new coffee trees and are continuing to plant on a monthly basis, our goal is to put in over 100,000 new trees over the next few years.
