Guatemala is always on our minds here at Huckleberry, and even though the coffees from the AProCafé El Grano Growers Association might only be on our menu for a few months each year, these coffees represent year-round work and commitment from both Huck and the growers. After months of work and a bit of waiting, we’re always stoked to drop Atitlán el Grano back into the lineup. This year, before coronavirus turned our world upside-down, we traveled to Guatemala with a crew of Huckleberry baristas for the first time ever. Keep your eyes peeled for some fresh video content! As always, it's a pleasure to spend time with the team at AProCafé, and sharing that experience with our own team made it even more special. Every time we visit we're blown away by AProCafé's hard work, dedication to organic farming and preserving the environment, and the farmers' eagerness to both welcome us and work towards improving their coffee. We've been roasting coffee from AProCafé el Grano since 2015, and have been working hands-on with these growers since day one. Several years ago we worked with the group to develop their first single farmer microlot program, and each year, have used a portion of proceeds from our holiday Sister Winter blend to help the group with a variety of projects. AProCafé has used Sister Winter funds to purchase and apply organic-approved leaf rust prevention treatments, to build raised drying beds to improve coffee processing, and this year we purchased Brix meters for the group, to help picking coffee cherries at their optimal ripeness. While we’ll have special single farm microlots from a few farmers in the group, the main lots from AProCafé are equally special. We're tasting red apple, hazelnut (we would've put Nutella on the bags if we legally could), plum, and caramel in this year's crop - Atitlán el Grano is back for year six, and as always, is dependably sweet and delicious!
