Red Robin Coffee
This month's coffee from Easy E's is Guatemala Baja Verapaz.
The Coffee Producers Association of Chichupac (APCC) was established in 1982, just after the conclusion of Guatemala#s horrific, 36-year-long civil war. The group remains small: currently it is composed of just 28 members who come from around 13 different local families, plus around 50 #independent# neighbours who deliver their coffee to APCC#s wet mill. All families, apart from two, belong to the Maya Ach¡ community, and Spanish is their second language.
