Our Review: Entre Rios' is a farmer group in the region of La Libertad, San Marcos with strong beliefs and practices in sustainable organic farming. The majority of the members of this cooperative are refugees who fled to Mexico during the Guatemalan civil war. After the war they returned to the region of San Marcos and formed the community in La Libertad. Coffee cultivation was not a part of life in the community when it was first formed. However, through hard work and technical assistance from different entities, this community has now formed into an organic coffee cooperative.
What a story! But how is it? Well the short version is that this coffee is just as good as the tale behind it! If you love Guatemalan coffee, you've certainly tried your fair share of coffee from the Huehuetenango region. While this coffee is similar, it's a bit softer and more balanced while still retaining the big body and smooth, creamy texture. The front end is gently crisp with a subtle note of sweet meyer lemon. Next you'll pick up more sweetness in the form of milk chocolate and rich brown sugar followed by a clean, satisfying finish.
