As the seasons change, so does our TEAMWORK espresso, highlighting the very best single origin coffees throughout the year. We’re looking for coffees that are balanced and sweet, delicious in milk, and with enough complexity to be enjoyed straight up.
This coffee comes from seven farmers that grow coffee in the highlands of Huehuetenango, Guatemala - one of our favorite producing regions! Huehuetenango is very remote, but the altitude of this region, combined with the hot dry winds that blow over from Mexico’s Tehuantepec Plain, provide excellent conditions for growing quality coffee. Expect a sweet and full bodied espresso with notes of chocolate, caramel and stone fruit.
Today, nearly half of coffee production comes from countries predicted to lose more than 60% of land suitable for growing coffee by 2050. As temperatures rise and extreme weather becomes more frequent, coffee farming is becoming increasingly difficult and less profitable for many producers across the globe. World Coffee Research is a non-profit organisation providing farmers with the tools, knowledge, and plants necessary to adapt in a changing climate. Together with our importing partners Caravela, we are donating €0.50 from every Kg of TEAMWORK Seasonal Espresso to support their work.
