Youth inclusion in Guatemala

The future of coffee is changing and young people in Guatemala are facing a migration crisis due to the lack of access to land, credit, training, and education. To combat these challenges, Equal Exchange, through the Cooperative Development Program, has joined with coffee co-op Manos Campesinas to develop opportunities encouraging young people to stay in Guatemala through programs offering a sense of inclusion, ownership, and a voice in the co-op. Since 2018, 27-year-old Marina Elizabeth De León Tzunún has been a part of this program gaining experience through training and education, and is now an active co-op member with her own plot of land to farm coffee and raise chickens for the sale of eggs and meat on a larger scale. Marina Elizabeth’s story of inclusion is one example of how programmatic change is vital for the survival of coffee farming co-ops and is reflected in this seasonal offering of Organic Next Gen.

What do our roast names mean?

At our solar-powered roastery in West Bridgewater, Massachusetts, our worker-owner team batch roasts and conducts production cuppings daily to bring out the best characteristics in each harvest. With four primary roast levels, we think there’s a favorite here for everyone.

Medium Roast: expect the unique citrus, nutty, fruity, or floral notes of each coffee to shine through.

Full City Roast: you’ll get a bit more of the caramel flavor that comes from the roasting process.

Vienna Roast: starts to bring the smoky aroma and smooth and rich body of a darker roast.

French Roast: with the natural oils fully expressed, it’s an intensely dark and smoky experience akin to dark chocolate.
