Notes from the Roaster

We're super excited to bring Ixban back to our roasting studio! Last year we couldn't travel to Guatemala so we were a little late to the coffee buying game and Ixban was taken super fast.. but we were able to get our hands on some of their bags this year and we are soo stoked!

Ixban is a group of eight smallholder producers in Huehuetenango, within the region of San Pedro Necta. All of the producers have been working in coffee their whole lives and rely on it for their entire income. Their high average altitude means their harvest is somewhat later in the season. The harvest tends to come in two main "rounds," as the trees mature: The coffee is handpicked and sorted by the families, who also depulp and ferment the coffee and dry it on their own personal patios before bringing it to the Bella Vista dry mill for hulling and sorting.
