Our rich, full-bodied Organic Espresso Sierra features beans from the Americas and the Pacific Rim. We roast the beans to a deep dark brown. Roasting it to this level transforms the bean’s characteristics, imparting sweet notes of dark chocolate and caramel. This coffee makes for a great espresso or drip coffee.
We coax the sweet notes of dark chocolate and caramel in this powerhouse blend to fruition with an espresso-worthy, transformative dark roast. A blend of beans grown in the Americas and Indonesia, this is the ideal espresso to pair with milk or sweeteners. It makes an incredible drip coffee, and an excellent foundation for a first-rate cappuccino.
We crafted this espresso for those dark-roast extremists. Organic Espresso Sierra is an intense and heavy-bodied blend. We roast it to accentuate the smokiness, but with underlying depth and sweetness.
The ACODIHUE Cooperative (Asociación de Cooperación al Desarrollo Integral de Huehuetenango) was founded in 1996. The organization is located in the mountainous territory called Chuchumatanes in Guatemala’s Huehuetenango region. Small-lot coffee producers representing nine different Mayan ethnic groups make up the co-op. The cooperative provides its associates with food security and health benefits in addition to business services including marketing, commercialization and economic development focused on coffee and honey. There are just over 1,200 coffee producers belonging to Acodihue with average farm size between 0.5 and 4 hectares.
The cooperative began as an NGO and continues to keep the well-being of its members as its core focus. For example, ACODIHUE provides numerous assistance programs. Women and young coffee farmers are the cooperative’s focus of many of their programs. In fact, twenty one separate women’s groups are part of the larger “Manos de Mujer” group. They founded it 2012 to formally market these women-produced lots. Today, women farmers produce 80% of the coffee in the co-op.
