Mormora is a 200 hectare farm, the majority of which is semi-forest coffee, which means the forest has been managed to allow coffee to grow in it. The trees benefit from a natural shade
plants whose leaves provide protection from the sun and, when they fall to the ground, decompose and enrich the soil.
Each harvest, hundreds of smallholders in the area deliver coffee to Mormora’s washing station. These smallholders generally have 1–2 hectares of land to grow coffee. Mormora pays
for the cherry, but adds a quality premium.
