Intercontinental Coffee Trading is proud to be a longtime supporter of this worthwhile cause.  Please visit http://bit.ly/ict-coffee to place your bid, and learn more about Grounds for Health.

The ADISQUE Co-op consists of 165 mostly indigenous families of Mayan decent.  49 women are among the growers contributing to the production of “Sello de Mujer”.  ADISQUE is an organization that provides assistance to small farmers in the production of high-altitude, organic coffees, with a special focus on practices that do not contribute to climate change, and on improving living conditions of local families.

Cupping Notes: Medium-bodied and well-balanced, with a gentle lemony acidity. Notes of almond and chocolate on the finish.
