The Lake District Search & Mountain Rescue Association (LDSAMRA) provide a vital service here in the Lake District, helping injured and stricken hikers to safety from some of the most remote and precarious places in the country. The vast majority of incidents are safely resolved but there are inevitably a number of fatalities, and without the help of LDSAMRA this number would be much higher.
In order to carry out their work LDSAMRA rely on a team of brave and highly trained volunteers. We are friends with a number of them so are well aware of the great work that they do and the importance of donations to provide them with the kit necessary to do their job effectively.
With this in mind, we donate £1 per kilo of Mountain Rescue sold to LDSAMRA.
Our current Mountain Rescue coffee comes from a collective of smallholder farmers based around Union Cantinil in the Huehuetenango region of Guatemala and forms part of our Guatemala Extracted! project. Our importing partners Olam have a small team based in this community who buy coffee from the smallholder farmers and separate it into lots based on quality. This particular lot is of exceptional quality. In the cup it is clean and incredibly well balanced with notes of toffee and raspberry.
