So, what does Kapeh Utz even mean?: Kapeh Utz translates from the Mayan language Kaqchikel to: Good Coffee. Kapeh=Coffee. Utz=Good. Let me tell you something. It is superUTZ!(superutz is actually a word I heard the young folks of Guatemala using when I lived there. The majority of young adults fluently speak a Mayan language in addition to Spanish and some English. Gah! Language fusion is incredible!)
So, what’s Kapeh Utz to you?: Kapeh Utz is sustainably and organically grown coffee from the cloud forests of Southern Highland Guatemala. The coffee is grown by my friend and fellow farmer Felipe Misa who lives in a town called San Lucas Toliman. San Lucas Toliman sits beneath two volcanoes on the edge of a mysterious, bottomless, freshwater lake created by the implosion of a super-volcano millions of years ago. Isn’t that awesome? That’s where this coffee is coming from. The land of awesome. The land of eternal spring…Listen, I could go on day and night about this coffee. I could wax poetic for hours on it’s deep rich flavor infused with hints of smoldering volcanic soil and the magical jade colored waters of Lake Atitlan. OR you could come to Eastern Market on May 28th and sample some for yourself. I will be ordering this coffee on a monthly basis from my friends to ensure the freshest product for my customers. Read more about this coffee under The Farm Share tab above ^. Some more details below.
