Their coffee first appeared in our Holiday Coffee in 2013, and their level of quality and execution, even being so new, was the tip off for us that we wanted to work more with them. This is only the group’s second year exporting coffee. We visited Sipacapa for the first time in February 2014 and were eager to visit based on our knowledge that this area in Guatemala is poised for quality coffee production. Fewer than 300 producers make up the group—which is growing quickly thanks to interest among people in the area. The majority of the producers have less than one hectare of land. Sipacapa is one of six secondary cooperatives that delivers its coffee to the primary cooperative, Manos Campesinos. The years ahead will no doubt hold great growth and advancements in quality for Sipacapa, and we will eagerly be following along.
