More Info About This Coffee:
This coffee comes straight from women owned and/or managed farms within the larger CODECH cooperative located near the municipality of Concepcion Huista in the department of Huehuetenango. First it is the best tasting lot of Fair Trade Organic Guat we’ve cupped the past two years (those of you keeping track will note it’s the only one we’ve offered). Secondly, and depending on your world view maybe most importantly, it is another coffee—like Peru Apu and Mexico El Triunfo--we are part of that goes beyond fair trade in scope and price, directly empowering our partners at source: dedicated artisan coffee growers. In this case, the women who created this lot voted to split the above fair trade price premium between their farms and a women’s health workshop focusing on infant mortality.
