A pleasant, sweet cup with notes of hazelnut and pecan on its finish, this coffee is from the San Marcos region of Guatemala and is produced by small-scale farmers who are members of the APECAFORM Cooperative. APECAFORM represents one of our longest-standing trade relationships.  We have sourced coffee from them for more than 18 years, and over time, we have seen their coffee quality improve, their communities become more accessible as dirt roads get paved and their cooperative invest in a cafe that sells their coffee in the nearby urban center of Quetzaltenango.  These farmers remain, remote, though, and many of the 200 plus members must walk nearly 3 hours to reach the closest commercial center of San Marcos.  Founded in 1992 with aid from the Catholic diocese, APECAFORM is run by Mayan descendants who speak Mam, one of the some 20 indigenous languages spoken in the country.  In September 2017, members of their community were affected by the 8.1 magnitude earthquake that shook Mexico and Guatemala's Pacific coasts.

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.
