Guatemala Mountain Water Process Decaf Fair Trade

ASOBAGRI or The Asociacion Barillense de Agricultores was founded in 1989 by 20 Mayan coffee and cardamom farmers. It currently has more than 1,200 cooperative members. The members of ASOBAGRI are from approximately 30 small villages in the Huehuetenango region, surrounded by the Cuchumantanes Mountains and the Maxbal Forest Reserve. This coffee is shade-grown under guava, plantain, and banana trees. ASOBAGRI promotes sustainable agriculture by training its farmers in organic production methods. They continue to reinvest in their infrastructure while exploring new quality control measures through financing and operating their warehouses and drying patios.
Some companies claim a so-called “natural” decaffeination process but still leave behind residual chemical contamination. These companies use chemicals like methylene chloride in an “organic” water process or ethyl acetate, a.k.a. “sugar cane” or “natural process,” which causes unnatural fruity flavors.
This coffee is a medium roast with tasting notes of honey, almond, and orange.
