<p> 	The Hazard family has been producing coffee on their land in Atitlan since 1985. They place a heavy focus on sustainability: 60% of their farm remains natural forest, and the 40% that's planted is an intentional mix of coffee, macadamia, avocado, and other crops that provide both biodiversity and a diversified income. The colorful Guatemalan national bird El Quetzal is native to the area, and the Hazards work with local preservation groups and biologists to maintain a healthy habitat for it amongst their coffee trees. Speaking of coffee - the Hazards grow several varietals including the rare stuff like Geisha - which is what we're enjoying in the club now! </p>
<p>
Los Andes Geisha is a sweet and flavorful coffee that's almost too easy to drink. We're tasting a sugary sweetness throughout, punctuated by some orange citrus notes and a unique rosehip note that lends tartness and florals to the brew. We're starting to see Geisha more regularly cultivated across South and Central America - and while it's not always a 100% sure bet to be delicious coffee, it certainly doesn't hurt your chances! When you pair a tasty varietal with the expert production and processing practices at a farm like Los Andes - you're in for something tasty. Enjoy!  </p>
