Guatemala Chipaltanengo

Green Mountain Coffee® Special Reserve Guatemala Chimaltenango

"Ojercaibal, a small town in the department of Chimaltenango, means "old market" in the indigenous Kaqchiquel dialect. Most producers here grow coffee on small plots next to or near their homes so they can carefully monitor every stage of its development.

While Chimaltenango is a small, remote area west of Guatemala City, coffee producers there have benefitted from exporters and roaster-buyers who recognize the quality of their beans. With the price premiums their coffee generates, the producers have been able to build classrooms for the village school and provide clean water for the whole community."

As welcoming as the friendly face on the package design. Gareth said it best: "Awesome. Very smooth, but somewhat rustic."
