ORGANIC This Fair-Trade coffee is grown on one of many small plantations owned and operated by native Mayans who cherish the land and practice environmentally friendly methods much like their ancestors. More than 2,300 farmers and their families find their way of life in the growth and processing of this organic Central American coffee. Each coffee tree is grown under shade trees; they mature slowly, locking in immense flavor as the coffee cherries ripen. The coffee beans are hand-selected and sun-dried before they are processed and exported. Full-bodied, well-balanced, lightly sweet and mild cup with low acidity and a pleasant aroma, finishes with a crisp, clean essence.
