Our newest micro-lot from Guatemala comes from our friends at Yepocapa Coffee. This is our second offering in one year from this amazing team. Our team has been moved by their dedication to the farmers of the region and their focus on the integrity of the end product. This micro-lot is coming from several of the farmers in the region all working hard to create coffee that stands out and creates equitable opportunities for years to come in their community. This harvest is perfect for your daily morning brew or a stand alone, sweet, citrus cup for your afternoon with notes of caramel, blood orange, and hazelnut. We know this is one you will come back to over and over again.
More of the story from our friends at Yepocapa Coffee:
“Farmers in Yepocapa love to farm. For many of them, it’s a way they get to honor their parents & grandparents; and for the rest, there’s simply a peace behind working in the fields, breathing the fresh air, and caring for plants that help to provide their way of life.
We started up our Micro-lot program with the aim to specifically invest in and separate out coffees coming from farmers that want to see their careers be a sustainable one; not just for them but with the next generation in mind. Don Luis alongside two other farmers were among the first farmers in the Pachup region to be a part of our little experiment/program for the 2018/2019 Harvest.
From the prices they received that harvest, it’s been neat to see their reactions and even more exciting to see how much this coffee has grown from a cupping perspective! Don Luis was better able to invest into his land and give more work as a result of micro-lotting his coffee last year. This is a good thing not just for the coffees but for his capacity to give employment and see coffee farming become a career with room for growth.
This year, 15 farmers wanted to separate out their coffees by varietals and be a part of this micro-lot!”
