Blend Description:

Xinabajul is the name of the original Huehuetenango town, and this coffee comes from small-holder farmers in the greater department of Huehue. It's also the name of the project (Proyecto Xinabajul) we started in this area paying small farmers a premium for high-quality coffee cherry. Farmers in the highlands have little option for selling their cherry and either cart their coffee to market themselves or sell to "coyotes" who pay next to nothing. It's another of the custom decafs that we have processed by the folks at Swiss up in Canada. This lot cupped strong as a regular, non-decaf, and so we were confident it would make a great decaf too. There are huge advantages to sending off your own coffees for decaffeination - the biggest being selecting quality lots in order to make a quality decaf. We don't think decaf drinkers should be relegated to what seems to be the standard decaf cup profile - low sweetness, cardboard, and a thin body. And it's also satisfying to know where your coffee comes from, which is often hard to find with decaf offerings.
