ASOBAGRI, or the Association Barillense de Agricultores was founded in 1989 by 20 Mayan coffee and cardamom farmers. The members of ASOBAGRI are from approximately 30 small villages in the Huehuetenango region, surrounded by the Cuchumantanes mountains and the Maxbal Forest Reserve. This coffee is grown under guava, plantain, and banana trees. ASOBAGRI promotes sustainable agriculture by training its farmers in organic production methods, investment in infrastructure, and operating their own warehouses and drying patios.

The Huehuetenango region is located on the pacific slopes in southwest Guatemala. This region is known to be one of the best coffee growing regions in all of Guatemala. It’s a large, strictly hard bean (SHB) coffee that is shade grown in clay, limestone and volcanic soil at an altitude between 5,000 – 6,300 feet above sea level. The coffee is all hand-picked and prepared using the wet method and sun dried outside on cement patios.

All of our Central American coffees are grade SHG and are of the highest quality specialty coffee available.
