Maquina Coffee Roasters - Sonrisa (Guatemala) - Whole Bean - 12oz
ACODIHUE, Asociación de Cooperación al Desarrollo Integral de Huehuetenango was founded in 1996 with the support of the European Union and the government of Guatemala. It is a primarily coffee producing organization, made up of 20 agricultural associations, overseen by a board of directors which is elected at the organisation’s annual assembly. ACODIHUE is also focused on supporting the next generation of coffee growers and has implemented a generational advocacy initiative to support and promote the inheritance of farms by the children of coffee farmers. Through the program, youth participate in key training events covering organic production, agronomic best practices, post-harvest management, marketing, and sales. In April 2019, ACODIHUE approved a youth commission to give more decision-making power to their next generation of coffee growers; later that year, the commission signed their first coffee contract.
This project, Sonrisa de Mujer is a women’s lot. It’s delicious and consistent and tied to positive projects at origin. Creamy mouthfeel and super sweet. Guatemala Sonrisa (which means SMILE in Spanish) is an uncomplicated and delicious example of Huehuetenango’s best coffees.
Notes: Candied orange, chocolate, vanilla bean
