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.
This roast is so light and fruity it is a perfect way to start my day. I go to bed looking forward to my morning pour over!
Have ordered several different times from First Ascent. Friendly service, prompt shipping and outstanding products. Coffee is always fresh and makes you appreciate the intentional skill and dedication they pour into their craft. Keep up the good work!

Great roast! Love the flavor and ordering more!!
Bold, electric, full of round clean flavor.
Not Roasted Enough
It wasn't clear from the product description that the roast would be so light. I recognize that some prefer it that way. If I can figure out which selection has a darker roast, I'll order that one next time. I gave these beans a darker roast myself in a frying pan, and I love the flavor.
Love you all's roast. The whole family cherishs it!
