GROUNDS for CHANGE | Guatemala "Quetzal"
Letting the true varietal character of this delicious Guatemalan coffee shine through, we use a delicate light roast to tease out sweetness without degrading the creamy smoothness and long finish that high-quality Guatemalan coffees are known for.
The fair trade cooperative that produces this fine coffee is located in the department of Huehuetenango, which happens to be home to the rare and beautiful Resplendent Quetzal (Guatemala's national bird). The co-op provides technical assistance to its members and has a facility that produces organic fertilizer to ensure the production of high quality coffee.
Jared's relationship with Grounds for Change dates back to 2008 when Jared was farming in WA. Upon discovering this local, sustainable, incredible family business, Jared was eager to share this coffee with his customers then and now!
