Guatemala - La Armonia Hermosa

from 17.00

Translating to “The Beautiful Harmony,” La Armonia Hermosa is a community of farmers located near the Guatemalan village of Santa Maria de Jesus. Headed by farmer Julio Cuy, the community has its own ‘beneficio’ - a coffee processing mill where the coffee is delivered, depulped, fermented, washed, and dried in the sun. Processing coffee is often one of the most difficult steps of production for coffee farmers - there is great room for error and loss of quality, and the machinery involved to make it less labor-intensive can be very expensive. La Armonia Hermosa is the flagship of Deeper Roots, an organization committed to building relationships between farmers, roasters, and coffee drinkers since 2005.

We pay higher prices and provide a line of credit to pre-finance the harvest, in turn improving access to medicine, education, and a better quality of life. Though production was down this year due to a coffee fungus called Roya, the installation of the community's first "wet mill," which will allow them to process their own coffee, and the addition of more farmers will hopefully ensure a higher production next year.

La Armonia Hermosa is our longest-standing relationship outside of the family farms in Brazil. We have been importing their coffee since 2012 and have consistently been impressed year after year by the increasing quality of the coffee and its interesting flavors. Grown at high altitudes, this is one of our fruitiest coffees.
