Description

This lot comes from producers in the Todos Santos Cuchumatan village in Huehuetenango, Northern Guatemala. The community in Todos Santos Cuchumatan is an indigenous group who predominantly speak Mam. Producers in this area mostly grow Pache and Caturra and little has been changed since the farms were first planted 30 or so years ago. The farms are managed organically with organic fertilisers and compost.

The group have 37 hectares planted with coffee, which is shared between the entire community at about 1 or 2 hectares each. The coffee is picked, processed, and dried by the individual farmer and then blended together later in parchment, but all producers have been trained in post-harvest best practices and follow the same protocols. This coffee has a particularly fruity characteristic which is due to the extended fermentation method that producers use in this area. The coffee is first washed and sorted and then pulped before being left to ferment for 3 to 4 days until the mucilage can be removed easily and has become a pinkish colour. This process requires the producers to be careful not to over ferment or damage the coffee.
