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. If you're looking for a sweet and pleasant washed coffee from Guatemala, this one's for you!
On Lote Colectivo from the Importer, Yepocapa Coffee:
"La San Pedrana’s Lote Colectivo is near and dear to our hearts. It’s a cooperative level coffee that encompasses coffees from the farmers in the region of Yepocapa; as long as the cherries are picked ripe, of course. It’s a lot that’s not exclusive and it gives opportunity for farmers to receive a better price point for simply better coffee.
Even though we love our Micro-Lots as well, we’re cognizant that they tend to be more exclusive and less impactful from a macro-level perspective. It’s for those reasons that we’re proud to offer lots that embody inclusion and opportunity while still offering straight-up good coffees!"
Please Note: All coffee bean orders are roasted fresh and may take 24-48 hours before shipping.
