La Resistencia

The Why

Our last coffee from Cafe Colis Resistencia was a sorted blend from multiple producers. This one comes to us from Eder Jiminez, brother of the group’s one lawyer and a pivotal resistance figure himself. The Jiminez family is fighting the imperialist invasion of Pan American Silver daily, both through direct action at the Escobal mine and in court via legal challenges.

We’re honored to be able to share their coffee with you, firstly because buying it has a direct economic impact on the sustainability of this group. But also because it showcases what is possible when you take a holistic, indigenous-led approach toward agriculture. Eder’s farm is lush with biodiversity, all the coffees are shade-grown and the family relies solely on natural farming inputs.

Quick tips:

This coffee has larger seeds, but they aren't very dense - they will grind easily, and extract easily. Grind finer than the other coffees we have in our lineup, but keep the ratio around 1:17 to allow for space to enjoy the delicate complexities this coffee offers.
