About this coffee
This juicy single origin from the highlands of Huehuetenango in north west Guatemala is a testament to female entrepreneurship. This is Caravan’s fifth year sourcing from the remarkable female producer Maria Ramirez. Like most inhabitants of the region, Maria is a member of the indigenous Maya community, a patchwork of unique language groups and cultures who have lived in this part of Guatemala for over a thousand years. This coffee is both a tribute to the rich history of the indigenous Maya community and a testament to the growth of female producers in the world of coffee.

We recommend whole bean as generally, whole beans will stay fresher for longer and give you the flexibility to grind your beans to suit different brewing methods.
If you have an Espresso Machine, we recommend you grind your own coffee to suit your particular machine. However, we do offer a ground bean option for Espresso, and if you select this option we will do our best to get it right but there are no guarantees as it's a fine balance.
If you select ground coffee for Filter, beans will be ground medium which will be suitable for most at-home brewing methods e.g. Plunger, AeroPress, Chemex, Drippers etc.
