Our Guatemala Huehuetenango (pronounced "way-way-ten-ango") is a balanced and smooth coffee. It has a light to medium body, fairly bright acidity, and nutty, pecanish flavorings. You might find a hint of peppery spice and orange peel fruitiness in the aftertaste.
ASOBAGRI or The Asociacion Barillense de Agricultores was founded in 1989 by 20 Mayan coffee and cardamom farmers. It currently has more than 1,200 cooperative members. The members of ASOBAGRI are from approximately 30 small villages in the Huehuetenango region, surrounded by the Cuchumantanes Mountains and the Maxbal Forest Reserve.
This coffee is shade grown under guava, plantain and banana trees. ASOBAGRI promotes sustainable agriculture by training its farmers in organic production methods and they continue to reinvest in their infrastructure while exploring new quality control measures through financing and operating their own warehouses and drying patios.
