Guatemala Huehuetenango Mujeres Santo Domingo (Medium Roast)
This is a real crowd pleaser! Our medium roast of this delicious Guatemalan bean works well in any brewing style, including pour over, French press, drip, and even espresso.
With a pleasant, medium-body mouthfeel, we taste citrus rind, brown sugar, and chocolate.

Notes on the producer from our importer for this coffee, Sustainable Harvest:
The movement to create the Santo Domingo cooperative began under the leadership of Orfa Constanza, who together with local women saw an opportunity to improve their lives and socioeconomic status through organic coffee production. Forming the cooperative wasn’t easy— the idea was off-putting to their husbands at first, who were accustomed to a culture of patriarchy in rural Guatemala. Over time, however, the women each gained title to their own parcels of land, either through their husbands or through inheritance.
The journey to achieve specialty coffee production was challenging for the small community of La Libertad, but they have proven themselves to be profoundly ambitious and determined, and now produce exceptional lots for the International market.
Through training from their umbrella cooperative, FECCEG (Federación Comercializadora de Café Especial de Guatemala), Santo Domingo manages their own biofabricas (organic fertilizer and fungicide plants) that are essential to improving soil and plant health and combatting diseases such as Roya. The biofabricas have been so successful that they have actually provided an additional revenue stream for the community, as their fertilizer is far more cost- effective than commercial alternatives.
Selling fertilizer has not been the only income diversification initiative the women have developed. The group was the beneficiary of a project by USAID, and several years ago received commercial baking equipment to run a small bakery out of one of the member’s houses. This has been another key source of income for the farmers.

A favorite, sweet, smooth, creamy delicious coffee. Likely to become a regular rotation.
The Guatemala Huehuetenango Mujeres Santo Domingo was delightful. Creamy and smooth and the brown sugar really shines through. Great addition to my rotating coffee selections!
This coffee is something I can count in to deliver just what I’m looking for, every time. I enjoy experimenting with new flavors, but value a solid friend like the Aititlan Fuerza De Mujer when I want a familiar friend.
We have been enjoying all the different roasts - switching it up here and there and we are always so happy. It has become the best part of our morning. So thankful we found Applied Arts Coffee!
The best motivation to go to bed at night is knowing that I get to wake up and enjoy a cup (or more:)) of this Guatemalan coffee. THANK YOU for creating this morning joy.
