Tinamit COOP (Natural) - Atitlan, Guatemala

We saved the best for our last Guatemalan coffee launch of the 2023 harvest! We only have a small run of this exceptional lot, so get it while it lasts!! 

The Tinamit Tolimán agricultural cooperative, known as Tinamit, is a new cooperative made up of Kaqchikel growers in San Lucas Tolimán, a stunning town on the shores of Lake Atitlán. These growers recognized that they were in a perfect location to grow specialty coffee and formed an organization in 2016 to market their coffees together. They formally became a cooperative in 2018 making them a new organization with great potential to continue improving quality for many years in the future!

The 26 current members work on farms from 1500 meters to 2000 meters above sea level, and they also have a small roasting operation to sell coffee locally in their small store. They have worked to branch out into quality natural and honey coffees, though washed coffee remains the majority of their production. The members pay special attention to their role in preserving the remarkable natural beauty of the lake, and strive for environmentally sustainable production.

This coffee is harvested by hand on farms in San Lucas Toliman, and delivered to Tinamit Toliman for processing the same day. Each lot is meticulously checked to to ensure the cherries are fully ripe.

Once cleaned, the coffee is set on the patio to dry in the sun for 5-6 days. Only then are the dried pods moved to shade-covered raised beds to finish drying fully. On both the patio and the beds, the coffee is frequently turned to ensure thorough and even drying. The coffee is pulled from the beds when it meets the appropriate humidity for export; it is then delivered to our dry mill for dehulling and bagging

This coffee has been imported by Primavera Coffee Importers.
