We're proud to release Lote Colectivo to you all, which comes to us from our friends over at Yepocapa Coffee in Guatemala. Lote Colectivo or the "collective lot" is a community harvest from La Cooperativa San Pedrana in Yepocapa.
We've been impressed with the Yepocapa community for years now, so we were not surprised that this community lot was so exceptional. The coffee is balanced and delightful. The flavor leans toward a chocolate, nutty profile but carries this delightful caramelized sugar sweetness throughout.

The team at Yepocapa firmly believe in forming intentional, long-lasting relationships within the community of San Pedro Yepocapa. A guiding principle of theirs is to show farmers that their work and their lives have purpose.
One of those farmers is Don Evaristo Charuc, who has produced coffee for Yepocapa since 2015. Don Evaristo’s family has been farming coffee for generations; his grandparents would even pray over each seed as they planted them into the soil. He shares his family’s love for coffee farming and hopes the generations to come can experience the joys of the trade.

We're truly honored to be able to offer this excellent, award winning coffee to you all this year. Max Perez produced this Pacamara Natural on his farm, Finca La Hermosa, in Chimaltenango, Guatemala. This past year, Max entered this very coffee into the national Cup of Excellence competition and came in 9th place.
Max has already entered coffees from his farm into national competitions this year and has received 2nd and 3rd placements. We have a very limited supply of this coffee, which is highlighted by its incredible aroma and bright, tea-like florality. This is truly a coffee to cherish and enjoy!
Please Note: All coffee bean orders are roasted fresh and may take 24-48 hours before shipping.
