In midst of the Sierra Madre Mountain range, Fair-Trade Organic Guatemala is admired for its distinctive qualities created by the wet-ocean water of the Pacific Ocean contributing to its soft tones, but equally complex nuances as some of the more austerely powerful acidity of other Guatemalan grown coffees.
From Fair Trade, USA: The Coordinadora de Organizaciones de Desar Concepcion Huista (CODECH) is an organization uniting seven coffee cooperatives in the remote, mountainous highlands of western Guatemala. In this isolated region, access to education and healthcare is limited, and, in 2000, a group of small farmers founded the organization to promote socio-economic development for their communities.
Today, CODECH uses their premiums to fund an organic soil program, a health program, and for gender education. Recently, a group of women within the coop formed a women’s group to address gender inequality in their communities. Their most cherished goal is to earn enough money to fund their children’s education—boys and girls alike.
All Boulder Organic Coffee is offered as whole bean. This coffee roasts on Thursday and ships on Friday.
