Tasting Notes: Black Cherry, Cola, Dark Chocolate, Juicy
Roast Level: Light
Cooperative: Rio Azul
This small Coop was founded in 1967 and received Organic Certification in 2005. All members are from the indigenous Mayan group Jalcaltec, also called Popti. In 2006, Conscious imported their first ever Fair Trade Organic harvest. It continues to be great year after years. With notes of black cherry and cola, this coffee is a great representation of the high quality coffee that Guatemala is known for.
I have been a subscriber since their launch, having been introduced to Better Grounds at a coffee festival. I have enjoyed every monthly selection so far! Their service is a great choice for anyone who, like me, wants easier access great quality coffee and anyone who might feel overwhelmed trying to look into the sourcing bonafides of different brands. I appreciate that they do this work for their clients, and also support different roasters who are doing good work.
