Sugar Creek Coffee Roasters carefully sourced this coffee from a cooperative located in the Huehuetenango region of Guatemala. The cooperative currently consists of 330 members, 316 of whom are indigenous. Formally established in 1998, Guaya'b began selling to the Fair Trade market in 2000. The sales made by Guaya'b have brought stability to the cooperative and have enabled members to meet their basic needs. With the Fair Trade price, Guaya'b farmers have increased their own earnings and reinvested a portion of their profits into the community. As a result, the region’s economy is more stable and the rate of migration has decreased. Guaya'b cooperative members voted to finance medical insurance for members and their families with Fair Trade premiums. The cooperative offers womens' programs focusing on female nutrition, and work and business training.
At Sugar Creek Coffee Roasters, we specialize in hand crafted, small batch, artisanal roasted coffee. While other commercial roasters typically have pre-roasted beans on the shelf, we are roasting fresh coffee each day, so you can be assured what is delivered to your door is the freshest coffee available.
All of our fresh roasted coffee selections are available for pickup at our roastery, as well as free delivery within 10 miles of our roastery in Indian Trail, North Carolina, with a 2 bag minimum. A low $5.99 flat rate shipping is also available for those across the U.S. Please do not choose the "pre-paid shipping" option unless you are on a pre-existing coffee subscription.
