Cobanero Chili Flakes

Burlap & Barrel's Cobanero chili is a rare Maya variety of chili pepper, grown in the mountains around the city of Cobán in Guatemala. It has a lush, fruity aroma and a fierce, smoky heat that makes everything taste better. Perfect for anyone who appreciates true chili flavor - fruity like a peach, sweet, slightly smoky, and brightly spicy. Use caution - at 30,000-50,000 in Scoville units, these chilis pack a punch; they're spicier than serrano peppers and in the same range as cayenne peppers. 4 Pack contains four 1.5oz jars.

We met the folks at Burlap & Barrel several years ago in our citizen-consumer organizing work. Their work to promote the reduction of inequality and exploitation in food systems by connecting farmers to high-value markets, helping them access a larger share of the product value chain, and establishing long-term, mutually-beneficial trade relationships resonates deeply with Equal Exchange.

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.
