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.
The Coordinadora de Organizaciones de Desarrollo de Concepción Huista (CODECH) was founded in 1995 as a cooperative for coffee and other products and services. It has grown to include more than 750 members. Coffee is relatively new to this area—at least to small-scale growers—and the majority that CODECH members produce come from trees planted in the past 20 years.
