Our first 2023 coffee from Central America!

...in this coffee.
We are excited to launch our first coffee from Central America for the year from Esteban Pablo’s farm Paya, high in the mountains of Huehuetenango! Esteban is a first generation coffee farmer who realized that some of his land would work well for growing coffee. Ten years ago he started planting coffee and with the support of his coop El Sendero, and a careful focus on quality, he’s found he can sell his coffee at a significantly higher price than what the local buyers offer.
Now it is an honor to share his delicious coffee with you! After grinding, we are smelling sweet chocolate and vanilla notes. The chocolate carries over into the cup as well and is joined by caramel apple and red grape. Sweet, chocolatey, vibrant and balanced, Esteban’s coffee is a fantastic start to our Central America season! Get it.
Time: 22-24 sec

We buy, roast, and sell coffee. On a surface level, this sounds simple enough. But buying coffee in a way we are proud of and in a way that those who buy our coffee are proud of is often complex, challenging, and hard work. We find ourselves on a continuum of buying and selling that progresses towards more sustainable, meaningful and equitable. The chart below provides basic information for each lot on where we are on this journey.
