GUATEMALA HUEHUETENANGO ORGANIC
ORGANIC, FULLY WASHED
lemon lime acidity, citrus, medium body
A soft, sweet dream of a coffee with gentle acidity, rounded milk cocoa, and caramel sweetness. Give yourself a hug or have a cup of this organically grown coffee- same thing!
More than 450 families with farms that average just a few acres in size work together through a cooperative called the Association of Special Coffee Producers of Huehuetenango (ASOPCE). Each family uses their own micro-mill to process their harvest, which allows for meticulous care in cherry selection, depulping, fermenting, and drying the coffee. Through ASOPCE, producers have gained access to technical assistance for managing their farms with the best agricultural practices. Using materials like coffee pulp to make organic fertilizers has helped reduce the transportation costs associated with purchasing fertilizer from afar, and at the same time, creates an abundant source of fertilizer that ensures better yields and quality.
