Organic Guatemala Atitlan Specialty Arabica - La Voz Co-op

Unroasted Coffee (Size): 3 LB
This Organic Guatemalan unroasted coffee shows off a buttery sweetness rounded with almond and toffee. More like almond brittle candy with an apple-like acidity that pops as the coffee cools. A smooth and balanced gourmet Central American green coffee with a soft acidity and a creamy nutty mouthfeel. Delicious to the last drop.

FLAVOR: Apple, Almond Brittle, Chocolate

How it tastes? Fruit notes buoyed by sweetness float across the palate with a lingering, smooth body. Smells of pure chocolate, honey, and vanilla fill the cup - aromatic, refined and juicy.

Complex peach and plum notes are matched with an soft apple-like acidity held together by a wonderful nougat and brown sugar sweetness. Accent notes of berry and orange offset a lovely chocolate body.

Full-bodied and smooth, this coffee's finish is clean and balanced with a pleasing almond brittle aroma.
Recommended Roast: Medium - Dark
Medium roast develops a buttery sweetness and a nutty finish. More like almond brittle candy with an apple-like acidity that pops as the coffee cools

Dark roast develop heavier chocolate tones and a creamy, rich mouthfeel. To accentuate more sweetness and temper the acidity, lower the gas before first crack or shorten roast development.

This coffee is responsive and cooperative - takes on heat nicely and cruises through the Maillard phase.

Organic Guatemala Atitlan

Guatemalan highlands are renowned for their distinct and delicious coffees. This Organic, Fair trade certified coffee is no exception. It is farmed by members of the La Voz Co-op, on the shores of Lake Atitlan, about 1,600 meters above sea level. The co-op is nestled into the side of the mountain, which rises up dramatically from the valley to the sky. Winding paths are carved between the coffee plants and the farms are shaded by large trees overhead.

Established in 1977, La Voz is a small farmer cooperative comprised of roughly 161 members, of which 61 are women. Farmers grow this coffee in rich and fertile volcanic soils under a canopy of shade trees. The region enjoys cool climate, amply rain, and mineral rich soils deposits from the Atitlán, Toliman and the San Pedro Volcano. These ideal conditions generally produce a slow-maturing, larger bean with richer and complex flavors.

La Voz takes great pride in its ability to control quality at every step of the production process. Manager Andrés believes the quality of La-Voz’s coffee begins with work in the fields, and is supported by the co-op’s efficient processing methods. The co-operative has a central wet mill where coffee is processed from cherry to parchment, and all of the work is done by hand and naturally.

In line with its sustainability standards, La Voz is involved in community initiatives that aim to provide healthcare benefits and better schools for the community and its members. In addition, the co-op supports its members in securing additional revenue sources through apiculture and a women’s weaving cooperative.
