Guatemala Full City Roast Coffee

( 6 Reviews )

A sweet, caramel-like cup with nutty, almond notes, this Guatemalan coffee is farmed by our friends at the Asociación Chajulense. The city of Chajul, where the co-op is headquartered, is a Mayan urban center, echoing a time when Mayan kingdoms ruled the land. It is one of the three towns that makes up the Ixil Triangle that is located in the Quiche department of Guatemala's western highlands. This area was particularly affected during the Guatemalan Civil War, and the co-op was formed in 1988 by 40 families who were focused on sustaining members, the environment and their local culture. About 1,500 farmers from 56 nearby communities make up the co-op today, and since 2013, the group has been working with the non-profit, The Coffee Trust, to combat a new adversary: La Roya (the coffee rust). La Roya is a devastating fungus that kills coffee plants and reduces crop yield. Through a farmer-to-farmer best-practice-sharing program, members have learned how to replenish nutrients in their soil that helps coffee trees resist La Roya.

The Guatemala is a great everyday coffee (or any time). It is soothing and has a great flavor/aroma. I recommend this for anyone.

Might be my new favorite....

Love many different Cafe Campesino coffees and espressos, but this recently purchased Guatemala might just be my favorite. Very rich, smooth and flavorful, very easy drinking. I'd say the "caramel, nutty, sweet" description on the label is pretty spot-on. I grind the beans myself and use a pour-over brewer, really gets the most out of this delicious coffee.
