TASTING NOTES: Cherry, Apricot, Chocolate

The Ceiba, Guatemala's national tree, symbolized the connection between land and sky in early Mayan and Mesoamerican cultures.  This coffee boasts a rich floral and berry aroma and is full of chocolate, lemon, and raspberry, with a creamy body thanks to the specific Huehuetenango terroir. The region's characteristic fruity flavors are partially attributed to cold temperatures and a longer fermentation process. 

The Ceiba project involves 1,800 producers spread out over most of Huehuetenango. The majority are extremely small producers. A common farm size is 500–1,000 coffee trees, about one fifth of a hectare.   Our importer and its partners invest in sustainable sourcing, offering agronomy workshops in indigenous languages, to benefit a large group of producers in a region that has suffered from a leaf rust epidemic in recent years.

We roast on Monday and Thursday and ship the next day.  All orders placed on Monday or Thursday after 9:00 am will be shipped after the next roast day.
