You're moderately adventurous. You like a little thrill but you're not looking to try out shark cage diving. You like to try new things, shake it up, but not cooking up alligator pate to impress your pals.
664 is for you. The cupping notes are familiar - cocoa, cherry, yeah, that sounds good. But we all agree, there's just something a little extra, a little different about 664. It's something special. It comes from Huehuetenango, which is located in Western Guatemala bordering Mexico. It is extremely diverse and known for producing some of the best coffees in Latin America due to its climate, altitude, water sources, and traditional varieties.
But we're not just talking about tasting notes! Fair Trade and Organic, named for the 664 women farm owners/managers who grow and process this coffee, is ethical, delicious, and distinct. Go on, you intrepid coffee drinker, pour another cup.
Asociación de Productores de Café Diferenciados y Especiales de Guatemala (ASPROCDEGUA) is a producing organization with 664 women farm owners. The organization offers its members access to technical assistance and routinely provides services such as soil analysis, test farms, and social projects based on food security, education, and nutrition.
The women farm owners and managers plant additional crops to diversify their acreage, with most farms operating on less than 5 acres. In 2020, the Women's Association used the premium collectively to purchase dairy cows. The cows provide nutritional value and easier access to organic compost for their farm production.
