Onyx Importers reached out to us in the beginning part of 2018, and after talking with them over the course of a few months, we are convinced that they are the way to go when it comes to Guatemala coffees! They are a highly specialized Importer, with 90% of their work being within Guatemala. This allows them to build lasting and fruitful relationships with the farms their, like the Perez family farm. We look forwarded to working more closely with Onyx and their partnering farms in the future!
