Fair Trade Organic Guatemala
This medium-dark roast is vibrant in acidity and has delicious notes of chocolate and nuts, and is a full-bodied roast that is deep and creamy. For those who like a strong, bold cup of coffee, this roast will create a sweet, chocolatey aroma that will leave you wanting more.
We are proud to have been among the first to import Fair Trade certified coffee from Asociación Barillense de Agricultores (ASOBAGRI).
The rugged terrain of the area has preserved the indigenous heritage, distinct clothing, and dialects that can vary from one mountain ridge to the next. ASOBAGRI has become an important bridge for these local coffee farmers to the international specialty coffee community. This cooperative is one of the most sophisticated and well organized in the world. They have over 1,400 members, spread across 80 communities, who cultivate and harvest their own coffee on small farms with their own micro-mills. ASOBAGRI is also committed to promoting gender equality throughout the organization.
This lot called Café de Mujeres (Las Dueñas Café) is the culmination of an integrated program for 182 female members of ASOBAGRI. The program includes 5 women technicians providing training and technical support that is appropriately tailored to the needs of the members. Strategies like using coffee pulp to make organic fertilizers reduces the transportation costs associated with purchasing fertilizer from afar and creates an abundant source of plant nutrition that ensures better yields and quality. Income diversification investments in chicken farms, avocado trees and local cafeteria have also strengthened the options for women members.
