Las Joyas

After Guatemala’s previous prejudice-beating debut, we now explore the diversity this origin has to offer.

Mild aromas like jasmin and nuts. Juicy sweetness like coffee cherries. Medium body like black tea and cacao.

Las Joyas

Many people are familiar with my reluctance about Guatemalan coffee. Last year when I got in touch with Primavera Coffee, specialists in specialty coffee from this origin, they surprised me with a coffee that I actually liked. This was the start of a great collaboration in a new origin, which we now keep on exploring to find new, exciting flavours.

Pricing

Since we do not have a direct collaboration and therefore no concrete plans yet, there is no quality premium either. However, one of our projects on the Argote farm to extend their drying beds requires some more funding. This is why we decided to charge 1.50 Euros above the regular mark-up which will be used to pay for Argote’s new drying beds. This cross-collaboration is a new premium system that we hope will create more opportunities for sustainable growth.

Efrain Argote needed USD 2,200 to build drying beds for his entire harvest. We hope to fund 50% of this amount by selling this coffee.
