Intentional relationship that leads to better coffee is a pillar in our ethos toward sourcing green coffee. It is our honor to share with you all this micro-lot from our new partners in Guatemala, Yepocapa Coffee. 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. Unfortunately, in the summer of 2018, Don Evaristo’s farm was damaged by hot ash from the eruption of the local Volcan de Fuego. He wasn’t able to produce enough coffee that year to fill a bag. In redemptive fashion, his coffee trees were able to recover and this year he produced an incredible harvest! This sweet, clean coffee is sure to be everyone’s new favorite!   

Please Note: All coffee bean orders are roasted fresh and may take 24-48 hours before shipping.
