Guatemala OrganicJava Planet Coffee
This single-origin Guatemala coffee is grown in the Huehuetenango region. It is shade-grown under guava, plantain, and banana trees which give the coffee it's fruit undertones along with the caramel and chocolate notes. We roast the coffee only to medium so as to maintain those flavors.
It carries the Smithsonian Bird Friendly Certification and Fair Trade certification.

This certified Bird Friendly and Fairtrade Organic coffee comes from Asociación Civil Guaya'b, an association in the Huehuetenango region of Guatemala. Of its 330 members, 316 are of indigenous descent.
Formally established in 1998, Guaya'b began selling to the Fair Trade market in 2000.
"Since we began selling at the Fair Trade price we have seen a big improvement in our quality of life," says Antonio Carmelo Camposeco, president of Guaya'b. "Cooperative members can now afford to buy clothes and medicine for their families, and they benefit from the new programs the cooperative has implemented with revenue from Fair Trade sales."
