Western Guatemala's high mountains are home to what are considered some of the most interesting and high-quality coffees in all of Latin America—this is certainly true of the coffee from the CODECH cooperative in Concepción Huista. We focus our sourcing on a few community-based associations within the cooperative that are known for good on-farm processing at high elevations. The resulting coffee pops with notes of cherry and apple with a creamy body.
Concepción Huista is the featured coffee for the month of October.

The Coordinadora de Organizaciones de Desarrollo de Concepción Huista (CODECH) was founded in 1995 as a cooperative for coffee and other products and services. It has grown to include more than 750 members. Coffee is relatively new to this area—at least to small-scale growers—and the majority that CODECH members produce come from trees planted in the past 20 years.
