Description

Washed Catuai ¹
Suyatal Farm in Guacamayas, Casillas, Nueva Santa Rosa, Guatemala ²

Daniel is a key figure in the Xinka Parliament to the Escobal silver mine who are actively in the ongoing consultation process to prove that the temporarily suspended mine infringes upon the territorial and religious sovereignty of the Xinka people.

This is our first harvest supporting Daniel as a coffee grower, as it is his first international sale. Alongside a group of young, passionate, and motivated resistance members, he processed his coffee to parchment at their new communal beneficio outside the town of Casillas. The first results are impressive - a juicy cup full of tangerine, milk chocolate, and berries.

¹ Processing & Varietal

Washed Catuai

Cherries are collected daily during harvest and are placed in sealed plastic bags to ferment for between 24-48 hours before being depuled in a Penagos ecopulper that uses minimal water. Once the seeds have been depulped, they undergo a dry ferment of 48 hours before being rinsed and moved to raised beds where they dry in full sense for 15 days.

² Region of Origin

Suyatal Farm in Guacamayas, Casillas, Nueva Santa Rosa, Guatemala

The Suyatal Farm is 2.8 hectares at an altitude of 1750masl.

Many coffee producers have no idea where their coffee ends up or what it tastes like.

This is not that coffee.
