GUATEMALA

We have a lot of different single origins…

And with these newsletters, we strive to help you find the ones you want to try. We explore the various differences in coffees and hunt down ones with unique characteristics and then roast these coffees to highlight the qualities that make them so unique. Some do better with a darker roast, some a lighter… Some have hefty notes akin to a bass drum while others are more like a saxophone (we can’t help but think of them musically). This one is a complete three-piece jazz set, all in one.

Our current Guatemalan crop comes from the ASPROCDEGUA Cooperative which has 664 members in the highlands of Guatemala. The cooperative gathers coffees from small shareholders, most of whom produce a small amount of coffee grown amongst other harvestable foods including bananas, oranges, guava, avocado, and cassava. This diversity is part of what makes their crops so healthy. The cooperative offers its members technical assistance for growing and distributing coffee as well as assistance in education and social projects focused on nutrition and food security.
