Nougat / Milk Chocolate / Toasted Peanut


Country: Guatemala
Lot: Volcan de Acatenango
Certifications: Fair Trade Organic
Processing: Washed
Experience: Rich and earthy on the nose. Smooth, syrupy sweet body.

This lot comes from Asproguate, an NGO comprised of farmers and agronomists who have partnered to improve the quality and market access of smallholder producers in several regions of Guatemala.

Asproguate has 15 "inspectors" who are trained by a head agronomist to work with farmers in three different regions of Guatemala: Coban, San Martin, and Acatenango. The inspectors conduct trainings for farmers 14-16 times per year, mostly supporting their Fair Trade Organic certification but also supporting them to start small side businesses, like shampoo and clothing lines, utilizing resources available on their land. These inspectors also deliver fertilizers to producers and collect coffee cherries for further processing and export.

Each year, Asproguate holds one major assembly where 4-5 representatives from each community, roughly 260 members, come together to vote on how to use their Fair Trade premium. The rest of the year, a board of eight farmer representatives, the lead agronomist of NGO, and the leader of the NGO collectively govern Asprogute's operations.

This unique model has helped Asprogaute scale its farmer training outreach, improving livelihoods and coffee quality at the same time.

**Don't Forget! These beans are green right now! We need you to place your order, so we can roast it especially for you and ship FRESH on Tuesday . Wait, tell me more…

At Treeline we like to keep it fresh. All coffees ordered are roasted, packaged and shipped on demand each week on Tuesdays. Orders must be placed before 5 a.m. PST in order to have your coffee shipped that week, because as much as we like to think we are awesome - we are not awesome enough to predict what you might be ordering.

All orders after this time will ship the following week. If this seems like a SUPER long time to wait for caffeine (don't worry, we get it) please leave us a note and we will do everything in our caffeinated power to sort you out. 

Due to our cafes being extra needy, we roast some coffee other times in the week as well - if your coffee happens to be the same coffee that they are getting, consider yourself a winner-winner-chicken-dinner because we will probably ship earlier then we just told you we would.
