The Journey from Bean to Your Cup

Our journey begins deep in the amazon rainforest of Peru, in the town of Satipo where our farming ground flourishes with Peruvian coffea and our nursery stays active saving Peruvian Coatis.

The province of Satipo is at 2060 feet above sea level and counts with an average temperature of 24˚C perfect climate conditions for growing coffea (coffee plant). Once the coffea is matured and ready to be harvest, we only collect the red cherry for our coatis, leaving behind the green cherry for the next harvest. After our first round of selection of the best red cherries, our coatis will do a second round of selection and only picking out the sweetest red cherries from batch.

In the coati’s digestive system the stomach amino acids and the proteolytic enzymes breakdown the outer layers of the coffee cherry. Once the outer layers are dissolved, the coffee bean which remains whole is infused with the other fruits and vegetables. The remaining layers help protect the coffee bean when extracted from their feces.
After the coffee bean is extracted from the feces, they are sent to the wash mill where they are washed several times to remove all feces matter. Once clean the coffee bean are spread out and laid out on the sun to dry for three to five days. When the coffee is completely dry the parchment coat is removed. The dried and clean coffee beans are then packaged in large bags and shipped to our warehouse centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada

In Toronto, the beans are roasted with its silver skin at 230 degrees. Once we have the coffee bean roasted, we package them in there 60g can or 120g test tube package. The packaged coffee is then distributed all over the world from our Toronto warehouse to our happy customer and coffee shops. The profits received from all our sells are sent back to the nursery, and the circle is complete.

Help us maintain our nursery to protect our coatis, and will we send you the richest and rarest coffee in the world. The circle of life continuous with every zip you take

Coati Nursery

Misha’s Mundi Nursery, is an animal rescue center located in Satipo, Peru. The nursery is structured and dedicated only for Coatis; check out our blog about coatis to know more about them.  We are not a zoo, and we do not buy nor sell our coatis. Here at Misha’s Mundi Nursery we strive to rescue coatis from all over Peru that have been injured, mistreated, taken from their natural habitat, or dislocated due to serious threat of environmental destruction of the amazon rainforest.  Almost, all of our coatis have been impacted by humans, intentionally or not.  Many have been victims or have become orphans due to dog attacks, unregulated hunting, and illegal trading.

Misha’s Mundi Nursery has all the right ingredients for coatis to live in their natural environment with tons of care and love to help them recover. Read about our farming grounds here. Within the farm land, the coatis can roam freely, eat what they want, and be protected from their predators, and far away from being hunted.  Our goal at Misha’s Mundi Nursery is to rehabilitate and reintroduce these coatis back to their natural habitat

However, not all coatis can be returned to the wild, in most cases, our rescued coatis have been in contact with humans, either briefly or for longer periods of time (previous pets) then abandon when unfit or inconvenience, or part of a trade war where the coatis lived in disgusting holding facilities. None of these environments resemble their natural habitat, and when eventually returned to the wild, these poor animals are not able to adapt. Many coatis released back to the wild after harsh captivity also get infected by other wild animals, thus causing serious and potentially irreversible problems.

In summary, coatis that have been kept as pets or in captivity for long periods of time, have lost their natural instincts, their ability to fight infections or common diseases found in the wild and depend on humans for food and shelter.  The human dependency of the coatis, as well as the risk of being infected by diseases, unfortunately makes most of these animals unfit for reintroduction as this could lead to the animal’s death. The nursery centre will offer them a place to live out their lives peacefully, healthfully, and as part of a social and safe group of coatis.

Whatever the situation, our nursery provides a place to help the coatis flourish, and continue to be part of our ecosystem.
