This blend consists of a dark-roasted coffee from the La Hermosa Cooperative in Acatenango, Guatemala & a medium-roasted coffee from Maya Vinic in Chiapas, Mexico.
"Medium-heavy"-bodied, dark & bittersweet coffee with flavors of charred tropical fruit, dried plums, & tobacco
La Hermosa is composed of twenty-nine (29) members - 12 women and 17 men, now in their third generation - who decided to become a cooperative organization with its own legal entity. Its purpose is that members have access to a level of a more humane and dignified life, taking advantage of the various scenarios and markets in the production of coffee, fair prices, and technological support to improve their socioeconomic development.
Inspired by the traditions of their ancestors, Unión de Productores Maya Vinic is organized and operates in keeping with a respect of local culture, language, reverence for the Mother Earth and traditional forms of self-government. Maya Vinic is born out the wider civil society “Las Abejas”, an organized response to the prevalent injustice in their communities and in the hopes of promoting positive change and autonomous development by pacific means.
