ORIGIN & SOURCING:

Primos Unidos is the combined efforts of the 3rd generation of Villatoro coffee growers.  Each year the cousins take on more ownership of the family coffee production, planting new varieties, driving education and experimental processing, and cupping in the family lab.  This coffee is the result of tireless cuppings among the cousins, combining day picks to create sweet and complex profile lots. Intentionally curated with the roaster in mind, Primos Unidos lots represent the love and passion of third generation coffee farmers, cuppers, agronomical and forestry engineers, and most importantly cousins, doing it all together.

We source this coffee through our friends at Onyx coffee importers.  They are a Guatemala-specific importing company founded by Edwin Martinez, a third generation coffee producer himself.  They import coffee from their family farms and also bring coffee from other farms that share their goals and values.   Onyx has partnered with Aurelio and the rest of the Villatoro family for over 15 years to bring their coffee to roasters in the US.  The Villatoros are well regarded as premier producers in Guatemala and grow extremely sought after coffees.  They are regular prize winners in Guatemala Cup of Excellence and Best of Guatemala competitions.  We have worked with Onyx since 2018 and have purchased numerous different lots from Onyx and the farmers they work with.  Many of our favorites come from the Villatoro family including the Primos Unidos.

Why We Love This Coffee: 

The Primos Unidos is a delicious coffee that highlights our goals with all the coffee we roast. Tasty coffee grown responsibly/sustainably by amazing people working hard to better the lives of their families and the people they work with. This is a special coffee with the family collaboration involved and every year it's a favorite here at the roaster.  It gets bonus points as it’s sourced with the help of our friends at Onyx Coffee Importers, they themselves being awesome people who share the same values of quality, traceability, relationship.
