Gregg chatting to Julio Martinez and Roberto Monterroso at his El Morito farm in the Mataquescuintla region of Guatemala. On this patio they are inspecting the coffee that has been honey processed (also known as pulped natural) at the wet mill, rather than being fully washed. This gives the coffee a unique flavour as some of the fruit is still on the bean. This region produces outstanding coffees for different reasons to other parts of Guatemala. There is no volcanic soil here but the valley creates a microclimate with the south winds bringing warm air and rain during summer and the north winds bring cooler, dry air in the other months. The wind also helps dry out the coffee on the patios, as well as lots of sunshine!
We help roasters from coastal cities to small towns on the national map ship coffee from their roasting house to yours.
Every shipment from our partners that enters our beancraft, we offset its carbon footprint by donating to the coffee producing region of Peru and the Alto Mayo Protected Forest through the @CoolEffect_ project since January, ‘17.
This project seeks to protect nearly 450,000 acres from deforestation. As its motto says, “More trees = more oxygen.” And more oxygen means the more beans that our partners can roast and that we can ship to your doorstep.
