Guatemala Hunapu Small Producers SWP Decaf


Hunapu is the indigenous name for Volcan de Agua, not far from Antigua's main center. However, unlike the "estate" coffees that usually come from Antigua, the Hunapu area is comprised of small scale farmers whose coffee fields are planted on the volcano's slopes across an altitude range of 1600 - 1900 meters above sea level. Roughly 450 farmers are currently selling their coffee to the mill in Antigua where each lot is assessed for quality, and separated accordingly. This single origin coffee has been decaffeinated naturally at a Swiss Water facility in Vancouver, Canada.

The roast offers bittering cocoa roast tones and caramely, unrefined sweetness. Roasted grain and nutty flavor notes find their way into the cooling coffee, with finishing notes of wheat bread, cocoa powder and almond meal noted.

This coffee is part of the 'Farm Gate' program from our friends at The Coffee Shrub, which means they have negotiated directly with the farmer, and guarantee prices that are at least 50%, and often more than 100%, over fair trade.
