Ek Balam is a cooperative of producers that banded together in 2019 as a way to combat falling prices, agricultural disease, and the dissolution of prior processing organizations. They seek to “achieve social, economic, and environmental development in order to improve the quality of life of [their] associates” (from their mission statement).
This offering is a showing of their processing expertise. Brewed, this coffee is comforting and full bodied, but with a pleasant and subtle malic acidity.
