Guatemala, La Morena
In Guatemala, gender equality remains a challenge, and coffee has long been a male-dominated industry. These factors have made it incredibly difficult for women to compete and thrive in the coffee world, which is why we are so thrilled to be able to offer this wonderful "classic Guatemala", the 2018 La Morena. This year's La Morena microlot was produced by four women-owned farms in Huehuetenango. The combined efforts of these for growers, Maria Teresa Alverado, Aleida Herrera, Sara Lopez and Yuris Yojana Villatoro is evident in the high quality of their product. La Morena is fully washed, 100% Arabica and Direct Trade certified. It is a balanced and clean cup with medium body and brightness and a smooth finish. Look for abundant flavor notes of Chocolate, walnut, cherry and brown sugar.
