Guatemala 🇬🇹 Huehuetenango Xinabajul Producers.
Notes// nectarine, orange, muffin.
Importer// Coffee Shrub
This coffee comes from the small, hard to access farms on the high ridges of the Cuchumantes mountains of Guatemala. In the past these small farms have sold their coffee to the larger farms located on the valley floor where their coffees are mixed with the larger, lower quality crops. The arrangement left these growers with less money for their coffee and less incentive to pick and process for quality. Coffee Shrub’s Proyecto Xinabajul is changing the game for these growers, offering premium prices for premium coffee and creating a stand-out, smallholder offering that can be tasted in the cup.
This is why story of why we do what we do and why we love it.
