Sipacapa is produced by a cooperative in San Marcos—a region of western Guatemala that is high in elevation and has a notably dry climate, but is not historically known for exceptional coffee. In the last few decades, however, cooperatives throughout San Marcos have increasingly focused on planting and developing quality coffee. This is our fourth year working with this organic producer group, and we love the notes of dark chocolate, fig, and brown sugar this coffee delivers.
We pay extra attention to decaf because we know people love it solely for its flavor. For Slow Motion, we start with great coffee—from the same farmers we work with for all of our coffees—and decaffeinate it in small batches using chemical-free water processing.
