El Zorro

GROUP OF PRODUCERS IN THE DEPARTMENT OF CHIQUIMULA
STORY

El Zorro is a coffee brand made up of a group of small-scale producers from the department of Chiquimula. Their coffee is called El Zorro honouring the expedition of motorcycles that takes place annually in Guatemala City, going all the way to the “Basilica del Cristo Negro” in Esquipulas. The expedition is called “La Caravana del Zorro” and it is a very popular annual event.

The work between Caravela and the producers responsible for El Zorro started as a result of many cupping sessions that took place in the region. During these sessions we found the coffees from this area to be perfectly balanced, with notes of chocolate and caramel.
