fruit, floral, smoky
Four villages, or aldeas from the Ixil region of the deparment of Quiche work together in a society called “Ixil A’achimbal” to produce a coffee with lush, winy acidity, vibrant fruit tones and nuanced floral aromatics. On the our brokers cupping table, (Atlas),these extraordinary coffees have been stars since their first purchase from the community in 2003. Since then, the quality has only continued to improve in leaps and bounds, with each aldea’s coffee gradually establishing an identity of its own. Although the four aldeas of Trapichitos, Batzchocola, Xeucalvitz and Sumalito are just a few kilometers apart from each other, the differences in character can be striking.
