Guatemala Primavera Sisterhood - Espresso

Very excited to finally have some coffees from Guatemala in the roastery! This is one of two lots we have from the importers, Primavera. Releasing a smaller lot as a filter option and the other as an espresso.


• Producers + Mill:

Gender equity is a longstanding challenge for the coffee industry; women coffee growers have less access to land, credit, training, and basic education even as women make key contributions to plant care, harvest, and processing coffee. Research has shown that when women are empowered to make decisions, including financial decisions about their coffee farms, families and community are more successful and their needs are better met.

Primavera purchase 84 and 85 point coffees from smallholder farmers in Huehuetenango each year to blend into a balanced, classic profile for coffee roasters around the world - each unique lot has full transparency and is traceable to the farm level. For the Sisterhood blend, they used these same guidelines but selected only coffees produced by women coffee farmers. These women also receive a premium for contributing coffee to this special blend.




This variety originates from Minas Gerais in Brazil. It was a natural mutation of Red Bourbon, Caturra is favoured as it is a high yielding plant (more cherries per tree) and is more resistant to plant diseases than that of Bourbon.


Bourbon is the most famous of the Bourbon-descended varieties. It is a tall variety characterized by relatively low production, susceptibility to the major diseases, and excellent cup quality. French missionaries introduced Bourbon from Yemen to Bourbon Island (now La Réunion)—giving it the name it has today—in the early 1700s. Until the mid-19th century, Bourbon did not leave the island. But beginning in the mid-1800s, the variety spread to new parts of the world as the missionaries moved to establish footholds in Africa and the Americas. The Bourbon variety was introduced to Brazil around 1860, and from there rapidly spread north into other parts of South and Central America, where it is still cultivated today. Here it became mixed with other Bourbon-related varieties, introduced from India as well as Ethiopian landraces. Nowadays, there are many Bourbon-like varieties found in East Africa, but none exactly match the distinct Bourbon variety that can be found in Latin America. Today in Latin America, Bourbon itself has largely been replaced by varieties that descend from it (notably including Caturra, Catuai, and Mundo Novo), although Bourbon itself it is still cultivated in El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Peru.
