THE STORY

Asproguate is 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 FTO certification but also supporting them to start small side businesses, like shampoo and clothing lines, using resources available on their parcelas. These inspectors also deliver fertilizers to produers and collect cherries. After Asproguate collects cherries they depulp them and ferment them at their own wet mills before delivering them to their partner Dinamica for dry milling and export. The Lago de Atitlan is super smooth and chocolatey with notes of deep plum and toffee. We're so fond of this coffee we use it as the primary component of our flagship Blendo Stupendo!

Light roasted for drip and press.

BREWING RECOMMENDATIONS

We serve this coffee as both espresso and drip in our shops.  We use 20g ground espresso to produce 30g brewed espresso in 26-30 seconds.  If you don't have a scale and the espresso is between 7 and 14 days old, just aim for a volume a little over 1.75 ounces for a double.  Please note this coffee is delicious as straight espresso but can get lost in milk; if you prefer a stronger espresso for milk drinks we recommend using the Blendo Stupendo.Of course, feel free to experiment with the parameters to find your perfect coffee.  If our parameters make the espresso tastes sour or bitter to you, just increase your brewed amount a few grams up if it's sour or a few grams down if it's bitter.  For our drip coffee, the parameters vary a little because we use a refractometer to control strength at 1.35% TDS, but if you don't have a refractometer just use about 12 grams of coffee for every 8 ounce of water.  Please contact us with any brewing related questions!
