We had an opportunity to roast this coffee again and so loved the coffee and the people that grew it that we brought it back as INSTANT for all of you to enjoy. This was a labor of love and we hope you enjoy drinking it as much as we did bringing to your cups. Whether at home, on vacation, at the parent's house, birding or camping, this is your new comfort cup!
This is a carefully selected community lot made up of Bourbon and Caturra varieties coming from three members of the ASODIETT cooperative. It is located in the township of Mash, in the Todos Santos Cuchumatán municipality in the department of Huehuetenango. About 30 families make up the ASODIETT cooperative, and many are of the Maya Mam ethnicity.
ASODIETT has been steadily growing over the last few years, thanks to intentional leadership and connections built by their leader Macario Calmo. The group is working to finish building a warehouse building with a second floor- this will allow the group to store members’ coffee in cooler, more stable conditions, and they hope to have humble quarters for visitors to stay as well. The warehouse will and has already served as a community center- there’s a small, community-led pharmacy on the first floor, and the area is a communal meeting space. The group’s sense of solidarity and focus on shared progress is evident.
ASODIETT has started their own bio-lab where they make a fermented foliar from the pulp of the leaves of a local plant called Horsetail, steeped in water.
