excellence, a walk of intention



La Bolsa, La Libertad, HueHuetenango, Guatemala

It’s a mountain whose name tintinnabulates like a cool millennial-type music festival: Huehuetenango. With millennials driving an increase in specialty coffee consumption with a preference for products that reflect value, Huehuetenango makes a fourth year cameo with  La Bolsa La Huerta from Guatemala.

The sustainable initiatives responsible for La Bolsa’s numerous accolades of excellence – water recycling and vermiculture composting – yes that means worms – makes the purchase of this roasted fruit, a star in its own right,  To further the story of La Bolsa, $1 from every bag sold will go to Action Against Hunger’s humanitarian work. Bag it up! Café Grumpy x La Bolsa w. Action Against Hunger.

Finca Beto, Cafe Demitasse

Finca Beto, Cafe Demitasse

Trifectas are rare. They are an anomaly, experienced. Thus, this first direct trade coffee sourced by Café Demitasse is an event for the palate, with a trio of factors contributing to its grandness. There’s it’s elevation: 1700-2100 MASL,  its farmer, Roger Urena and his commitment to the craft of all washed coffees and the bean itself, Red Catuai, honey processed.  Consider the coffee cherry bases loaded and this a home run in a cup.

Bases are loaded, and the home run is in the cup. Cafe Demitasse x Finca Beto.
