About this Coffee: This Coffee is cultivated in the Sierra de Los Cuchumatanes mountains of Huehuetenango, Guatemala, by 46 small producers, of which more than half are women. The Rio Ocho farmers are committed to organic farming practices, but faced with rising costs and expensive certification have been unable to re-certify their coffees. Unique to this area, each producer wet processes their coffee at their parcel and then takes the processed coffee to their home for drying. Producers use the pulp as organic fertilizer. On-site de-pulping significantly reduces the amount of work required to hand-carry their coffee from their plot to market.
