WHAT MAKES GUATEMALA COFFEE SPECIAL AND UNIQUE?
Despite its small size, Guatemala is one of the top ten coffee producers in the world. Guatemala is the Mecca for coffee farmers, and for good reasons. Coffee in Guatemala is grown at an altitude of over 5,000 feet, which explains its robust and distinctive flavor. Guatemala's unique region, with a mild subtropical climate, combined with nutrient-rich volcanic soil, create an ideal environment for growing some of the most delicious and fine coffee beans in the market. HELPING THE SMALL PRODUCERS Guatemala's coffee industry is one of the country's main economic motors and also the largest rural employer. Many communities in Guatemala's Western Highlands rely on agriculture for their livelihoods, especially coffee growers. Yet, small-lot coffee growers are at a disadvantage selling their product at low prices or getting their product to market. Sahil Coffee is partnering with local indigenous producers to help them manage their land more sustainably and improve their livelihoods. So, next time you pour yourself a fresh cup of coffee you are not just drinking one of the best coffee in the world but you are helping improve lives of Guatemalan families.
