GUATEMALA – organic
Spanish Jesuits cultivated coffee in Antigua as early as 1730, making Guatemala the first Central American country to grow the crop. The region’s high elevation and famed volcanic loam produce SHB-grade beans that are full-bodied and complex. Roasted medium.
Sourced from the ASOPCE (Association of Special Coffee Producers of Huehuetenango) – a cooperative of more than 450 families with farms that average just a few acres in the rugged Huehuetenango region. Each family uses their own micro-mill to process their harvest which allows for meticulous care in cherry selection, depulping, fermenting, and sun-drying the coffee. Through ASOPCE the producers gain access to the best agricultural practices. Using materials, for example, like coffee pulp to make organic fertilizers has helped reduce transportation costs associated with purchasing fertilizer from afar.
