Guatemala Siembra de Mujer
The Guatemala Siembra de Mujer comes from Cuchumatan in the Huehuetenango region of Guatemala, an area kanown for producing outstanding quality coffee. This coffee is produced primarily by small farmholders, 80% of which are women. When coffee is not being harvested, the cooperative ACODIHUE have given the producers opportunities to diversify their income. Many of the women have learned to supplement their incomes by producing other products alongside coffee such as honey and various produce. Because of their work with the local women, ACODIHUE has earned the certification Manos de Mujer (Women’s Hands). In addition to diversifying income, ACODIHUE offers health, education, and food programs.
Siembra de Mujer has quickly become a favorite at Utopian Coffee. On the nose, you can pick up notes of jammy berries and subtle honeysuckle. The flavors in the cup are exceptionally dynamic ranging from wild berries to mild citrus and caramel. This coffee tastes exceptionally well with any filter brewing method (Pourover, French Press, etc.) as well as espresso. In the espresso more floral flavors tend to be present.
