Our Guatemalan beans come from ASOBAGRI, a great coop that has worked for years to achieve consistent, specialty-grade coffee favored by many leading micro-roasters (of course, we were there long before those guys!!). Over the years, ASOBAGRI has instituted literacy courses, organic and sustainable farming trainings and many other initiatives made possible by Fair Trade and Direct premiums. We have worked directly with farm communities in Guatemala for over two decades during times of danger and peace. Our innovative, award-winning programs include microcredit, women’s health and youth self-esteem.
The volcanic slopes of Huehuetenango produce a small, dark green bean that delivers a smoky flavor, medium acidity with vanilla and chocolate undertones.
