SongBird Guatemalan, Light Roast
Vibrant • Cherries • Molasses
Rich aroma complicated by smoky semi-sweet chocolate and
Lightly roasted to express the unique characteristics of this
exceptional coffee: juicy ripe cherry sweetness, cacao nibs, and
sugary molasses. The coffee is shade-grown on steep volcanic slopes
of the Northwestern Highlands of Guatemala by Maya Quiche coffee
farmers. It is a gift from craft-inspired farmers whose ancestors
have lived in these lush mountain forests for millennia.
The GUAYA'B Association is a cooperative of 292 small coffee
farmers in the mountainous Guatemalan state of Huehuetenango. In
the 1980's, this indigenous Mayan community was ravaged by the
Guatemalan civil war, and the area's economy was destroyed. Many
inhabitants lost their farms and migrated to the Guatemalan coast
to search for work.
In 1992, a number of small-scale family farmers of the
Maya-Popti indigenous group united to take control of the
production and export of the coffee crops. By forming a
cooperative, the "Asociacion GUAYA'B", the farmers hoped to make
coffee farming sustainable and profitable for the community.
"Rich aroma complicated by smoky semi-sweet chocolate and
caramel. The cup is simple but satisfying: very sweet, deep,
roundly roasty. The real glory of this coffee is an extraordinarily
long, lushly vibrant, deeply chocolaty finish." - The Coffee Review, November 2005

From ELAINE RICCI of HOUSTON, Texas on 1/14/2012.
I highly recommend this coffee. It has a light body and a complex, slightly fruity flavor, with just the right amount of tanginess.
