For three generations our friends at Onyx have grown coffee in the highlands of Huehuetenango, and for the past twenty years they've partnered with other producers, cooperatives, and associations across Guatemala. Their mission is to connect these beautiful families and their coffees with roasters around the world.
Generally, we source single farm lots from Onyx, but La Alma is a new project that combines coffees from multiple producers in Huehuetenango and Laguna de Ayarza. The focus was on 85+ point coffees with clean, bright, and slightly fruited profiles.
