    Guatemalan coffee is revered as one of the most flavorful and nuanced cups in the world. Due to our proximity to Guatemala, some of the finest coffees from this origin come to the United States.

    ASOBAGRI or The Asociacion Barillense de Agricultores was founded in 1989 by 20 Mayan coffee and cardamom farmers. It currently has more than 1,200 cooperative members. The members of ASOBAGRI are from approximately 30 small villages in the Huehuetenango region, surrounded by the Cuchumantanes Mountains and the Maxbal Forest Reserve. This coffee is shade grown under guava, plantain and banana trees. ASOBAGRI promotes sustainable agriculture by training its farmers in organic production methods and they continue to reinvest in their infrastructure while exploring new quality control measures through financing and operating their own warehouses and drying patios.

    Location: Huehuetenango, Guatemala

    Altitude: Over 5,400 Feet (Over 1,650 Meters)

    Varietal: Caturra, Bourbon

    Process: Fully washed

    Drying: Patio sun dried and mechanical if necessary

    Harvest: December - May

    Export: April - July

    Fine Ground: At a fine grind, coffee should be soft to the touch – slightly finer than granulated sugar.

    Espresso: Great espresso requires skill, patience and quality equipment. Without these things, and a proper grind, espresso can be thin and weak or over extracted and clog in the portafilter. The perfect grind is essential to reaching espresso nirvana; an intensely rich and creamy extraction with thick crema and well rounded flavor.
    Grind: Fine/Very Fine

    Aeropress: The Aeropress is a quick and efficient way to make flavorful, rich coffee with low acidity and bitterness. With specially designed micro-filter technology the Aeropress consistently provides some of the best coffee in just under 20 seconds.
    Grind: Fine/Medium

    Medium Ground: At a medium grind, coffee should be gritty like sand with no considerably large pieces.

    Auto Drip Pot: The Auto Drip style coffee maker is an efficient and hassle-free way to make a fresh pot. With the correct grind and water to coffee ratio, it IS possible to get a great cup of coffee using this method.
    Grind: Medium

    Chemex: The Chemex is an elegant brewing device that extracts only the purest, most flavorful coffee without any bitterness or sediment. Because of the incredible functionality and design, the Chemex, paired with Chemex Bonded Filters, create a pure coffee experience unlike any other.
    Grind: Medium/Coarse

    Coarse Ground: At a coarse grind, coffee is separated into large fragments similar to grained kosher salt.

    French Press: The French Press is a classic and easy way to prepare decadent and smooth coffee and can easily be converted to brew cold coffee. The coffee grounds and water are separated by a fine mesh plunger leaving only fresh brewed coffee after 5 short minutes.
    Grind: Coarse

    Toddy Cold Brew: The Toddy Cold Brew system is a simple and consistent way to extract a delicious and low-acid brew. Oils and fatty acids that would normally settle into hot coffee are eliminated leaving you with a perfectly balanced and smooth cup of iced coffee.
    Grind: Coarse

    Very earthy and mellow taste which is consistent with coffee beans grown in this area. Visited Guatemala a few years ago and found many fine coffee beans sold there under various product names.

    my take on your coffees so far

    Cons:

    I am very delighted with the beans you thus far have sent me. They make a very good cup of coffee. I was wondering do you have a sample pack containing

    the various coffee's you distribute.? I would like to taste as many as possible

    before I settle down to the two or three I will then purchase more frequently.

    Again,very happy with the beans and the brew they produce.


    One of the best I have tasted, Brenda agrees

    We have been touring the world for a few years through FRC, finally tried Guatemala Huehuetenango. One of the best we have tasted - plenty of good coffee flavor. We are just coming off five pounds of Kenyan AA, so you know this coffee can hold it own, up against the best. I also like that the purchase helps support this region of the world - the Mayan Mam people.


    Love GUATEMALA
