We invite people we work with to taste coffees before they're released, to help define the tasting notes that inform the brush stroke illustration for the coffee. For this coffee, we invited the team at West Norwood's Volcano Coffee Works Cafe.

Sierra Productora de Cafe or SIPRO is a brand new association of eight smallholder producers in Amatenango de la Frontera, a small Chiapian community right on the south eastern edge of the country. Stand in the town centre and a strong throw will send a stone across the border into Guatemala's renowned coffee-growing Huehuetenango region.
This proximity ensures coffee from the two regions share similar traits. This washed coffee has rich fruit flavours, sweet spice notes and a medium body. It creates a delicious espresso and is just as good brewed as filter - easy-drinking and smooth.
