We've been buying Manos de Mujer for a number of years now, and while the coffee has changed as the co-op has improved their processing, it continues to be a coffee that we feel has the cleanness and flavor dynamics to please the coffee nerd in us, but it is also one of the most approachable coffees we've ever had and delights a very wide range of coffee drinkers.
The Guatemala Manos de Mujer (hand of women) embodies what we love about our industry. It's a delicious coffee made by skilled women in Guatemala. It's good on the pallet and good for the growers.
This coffee comes from a co-op made of women farmers in Guatemala; hence their name, Manos de Mujer (hands of women). We have been buying this coffee for many years now, and as we grow we have been able to buy more and more of their production.
In 2019 we started buying larger volumes of their production and committed to buy it before harvesting and processing had even finished. This early sale of their coffees, which we have sought to continue, gives increased financial stability and enables the co-op to focus energies on quality rather than on figuring out whether and when their coffee will.
