Explore the tasting notes of a single origin specialty coffee sourced from Guatemala freshly roasted in our coffee lab, at Meron Roastery. Here is some cool info about the coffee and the farm.


The farm/farmer

Cooperative Río Azul started in 1977 as part of the larger Cooperative Fedecocagua, a cooperative comprised of many small farmers in Huehuetenango transporting their coffee to the city to be exported. The farms and communities of this cooperative are located around the mountainous municipality, Jacaltenango in the highland region of Huehuetenango. 

Growing steadily over the years by word of mouth and the demonstration of their successes as a cooperative through the improvement of cultivation and harvesting techniques, the cooperative now consists of 254 producers, 500 associates, and 7 board members. 

About the coffee

Río Azul now has a mill, drying patios and a storage warehouse. They hope to continue adjusting their farming and harvesting techniques in accordance with the changing climate and standards of the specialty coffee market.
