Giorgia: Hi, folks. Giorgia here from Timely with a quick update for subscribers. You'll be receiving coffee from Los Machos Group this week. This coffee was grown in the Sierra Juarez region of Mexico, and it was produced by about 180 coffee-producing families that live and work in the region. Romulo Chavez, he is the leader and the manager of this group. And over the last couple of years, he's really put an emphasis on establishing really strong relationships with green buyers so that the group can realise a really good price for their coffee and have good access to the speciality market. One of the reasons why it might be a good idea to sell your coffee as part of a group like Los Machos Group is that most of these farmers in this instance have very small plots. They're considered smallholder farmers, which means that their plots are less than five hectares large. That might only yield 150 kilos of coffee per year. So if you're a single farmer and you're bringing that coffee to market, it's much harder to sell 150 kilos than it is to sell sort of 15,000 kilos as part of a group. So that's one of the reasons why it might be beneficial for a farmer to be part of a group like this.

Another interesting fact about this coffee is that we assigned the colour teal to it. That means that we think it's got a very round quality, a very round mouthfeel and a very sort of complete sort of flavour experience. It's got notes of almond, butterscotch, apricot. It's really like an afternoon tea kind of coffee, and we've been drinking all week and we really like it. So that's all I got for you this week, folks. And I'll see you next time. This instance, it is oh I was so close. Growing by about 150. Excuse me. Group is run and managed by Romulo Chavez. He is the manage-. Really emphasising on-. Manager and director of the group and more-. Or approach the market individually-. Just approaching someone with- approaching someone?
