2019 Crop!!! POAQUIL | Guatemala | Our most impactful coffee and Cold Brew pick! 🥉

from 9.00

Our most impactful coffee yet! This coffee comes from "Cooperativa La Asuncion", a women-led cooperative that's doing a fantastic job producing some of the best high-altitude washed coffees in the region. Expect strong dark chocolate and cocoa notes and a balanced, full-bodied experience. This is our fourth year directly sourcing this coffee, and quality just keeps getting better! An outstanding 89-pt coffee this year!

Process: Washed (and sun-dried on raised beds)

Varietal: Red & Yellow Bourbon

Region: Chimaltenango, Guatemala

Roast level: Medium (City+ Roast)

*** Farmers received 3 times the market price for this coffee - going well beyond Fair-Trade standards. While this coffee is not certified, the Cooperative excels on their water conservation efforts and has excellent biological pest controls. We look forward to continue to support them on a spirit of transparency and a shared commitment to real impact and relationships that go beyond ‘marketing-driven’ certifications.

Why love it?
This is our most impactful coffee yet! We’ve been working with Cooperativa La Asuncion, in the small town of Poaquil, Chimaltenango, Guatemala since our very beginning. The Cooperative has grown from less than 10 to over 30 members, each of whom owns and works their own small plot of land. Thanks to our support, and their own efforts, in 2019 - for the first time after growing coffee as smallholders for over 50 years - came together as a CoOp and purchased equipment to process their own beans!

Poaquil is a very small town, predominantly of Mayan descent, and full of incredibly hard-working people! We have seen, and can't wait to continue to see the impact and transformation that our long-term relationship will bring to the town - receiving more money for their top-quality coffee means more resources to invest in better housing, better schools, better healthcare, and a better future for all children!
