Guatemala Huehuetenango Guaya'b
Decadant brown sugar and a silky body give way to a macadamia nut and lime zest sparkle in this beautiful Guatemalan coffee.
This Fair Trade Certified, Organically grown coffee is sourced from family-owned farms organized around Guaya’b Asociación Civil (GUAYA’B), an association of 640 members living in Jacaltenango, San Antonio Huista, and Unión Cantinil, within the department of Huehuetenango, Guatemala.
