Representing three villages near beautiful Lake Atitlán in southwestern Guatemala, La Asociación Integral Unidos Para Vivir Mejor (ASUVIM), is a small coffee association with a strong focus on quality.

Concepción HuistaJacaltenango, Huehuetenango, Guatemala $18.25 | 12 oz bag
Western Guatemala's high mountains are home to what are considered some of the most interesting high-quality coffees in all of Latin America—and this is true of the coffee from the CODECH cooperative in Concepción Huista. We focus our sourcing on a few community-based associations within the cooperative that are known for good on-farm processing at high elevations. The resulting coffee pops with notes of Fuji apple, apricot, and raspberry.
Finca El PuenteMarcala, Honduras $18.25 | 12 oz bag
We met Moisés Herrera and Marysabel Caballero, owners of Finca El Puente, in 2005. Since then, they have become like family, and their constant pursuit of coffee perfection inspires us year after year. From experimental coffee varieties and growing techniques to unique ways of processing, they push the boundaries of coffee quality. This lot—mostly made up of the Catuai variety—has rich notes of cocoa, accented by a brown-sugar sweetness, finishing with a crisp, toasted nut character.

Finca La Victoria sits nestled in the quiet pine forests of Dipilto, Nicaragua—a community widely considered to produce some of the best coffees in the country. Though unseasonal rains and labor shortages made for an extremely challenging year for Nicaraguan producers, the Lovo family persevered to produce this balanced and sweet coffee highlighted by notes of pecan, vanilla, and red apple.
Finca VillaverdePalmitopamba, Ecuador $22.25 | 12 oz box
Single-Variety Lot – Typica Mejorado
We have traditionally focused our sourcing efforts in Ecuador on the country's southern regions, but we’re always exploring what other regions have to offer in the way of quality coffee. This small lot comes to us from a farm situated in the cloud forests just outside of the northern capital city of Quito. Producer Ruber Portilla grows a variety of Coffea arabica known as Typica Mejorado that's gaining recognition for producing flavors reminiscent of highly coveted Panamanian Gesha-varieties. We taste complex notes of blood orange and brown sugar with a juicy mouthfeel.
