What is a Medium Roast?

In 1927, the Colombian coffee growers joined together to create an organization that would represent them nationally and internationally, work for their well-being and improve their quality of life. Their vision is to work for the well-being of Colombian coffee growers through an effective union, democratic and representative organization.

Focus on Women-Owned Farms

Across Guatemala, women are the majority labor force on coffee farms, from picking to exporting. And around the world women comprise up to 70% of farm work while owning disproportionately few assets and land. Despite limited access, discrimination, and violence, many women have forged their own paths for their families through their coffee farms.

Cedar Bean’s Coffee Joint and our growing coffee network of partners are proud to have deep relationships with a few women farm owners around Huehuetenango, in the highlands of western Guatemala.

With our latest batch of Mill’s Reserve, we’re helping to invest in long-term partnerships empowering more women producers. The ELLA blend is a curation of women-produced lots we're hoping to work with more, with a brown sugary sweetness, full creamy body, orange and berries, pleasant nuttiness, and classic crowd-pleasing vibes all around.
