Guatemala - Red de Mujeres ( Washed - Organic) - Espresso

From the lush San Antonio Huista region comes this organic washed coffee.  Coming from an all woman farm, this coffee has an interesting background as well as fantastic taste.  

This coffee has a complex taste as an espresso. While it has rich, chocolaty notes usually seen in Latin American coffees, it also has bursts of berry and subtly sweet floral notes. The low acidity means it tastes lovely with milk, and plant-based milks won't separate in the cup.

We gave this coffee flavour notes of Vanilla, Blackberry, and Chocolate, and it has a Velvety finish.

Background info:
Red de Mujeres, or 'network of women', is a large group of female coffee producers covering five different areas of Huehuetenango. The group is made up of 830 women, but this particular lot comes from the San Antonio Huista area and is the product of 50 producers. Within the entire community of women there are 8 different Mayan languages spoken, highlighting the diversity of culture and language in this area of Guatemala.

With the help of ACODIHUE, who own the farm, these female producers have been united to market their coffee and find international buyers. ACODIHUE has also supported them in training in organic farming methods - from producing and applying fertilizers, to rust and pest control methods. Falcon, who we buy these green beans from, has started working with ACODIHUE to improve the quality of production even further, starting with Red de Mujeres.
