It was through this captivating brew, full of balanced body with rich dark chocolate, sweet orange, and brown sugar swirls, that we realized these women from Jalapa, Guatemala weren’t producing just any old cup of coffee; they’re creating something special. The only thing that may be even more delectable than actually drinking this coffee is the knowledge that this quality is transforming the community, opening opportunities, and empowering “chicas”.

The Medium Roast is the preferred coffee in Guatemala. It is a clean cup that gives a smooth body and a roast profile light enough to find intriguing flavor notes. We recommend always trying the first 2 sips of your cup of coffee without any additives to experience its natural goodness, but after, if its your preference, a bit of sweetener doesn’t harm this coffee. Depending on brew method and taste, a splash of milk could work but this coffee is best enjoyed black.


Your bag of Medium Roast will come from one of the strong female producers listed above. However, with our Espresso, Medium Roast, and Dark Roast, we do not actually know who’s coffee we will be roasting until roast day. These producers are all very small producers and don’t cultivate enough to have their own dedicated product. They are all from the same community and produce quite similar coffee so we can ensure quality throughout the year by leaving sacks sealed until they need to be opened.

It is our promise to always deliver single-origin coffee. That means, we never blend our coffee, not when roasting or before when it’s in green bean form. We maintain strict records to ensure that every single bag of coffee can be traced back to the strong woman who created it and also the batch it was roasted in. Check your bag to find out who produced your coffee!

    This was the first Chica Bean coffee I ever tried and I still remember how shocked I was by the incredible smoothness, unbelievably pleasant aftertaste, and impressive strength. I never knew coffee could be that good just by itself! All these years later and I’m still taken to that happy place by each and every cup!

    I was really excited to try some of this specialty coffee! I was not disappointed in the least! Not only was the coffee itself lovely, but the shipping after it left Guatemala was so quick! I am particularly fond of the bag and the beautiful logo as well as the special touches to remind you of the women behind the coffee you’re drinking.

    Amazing flavor. Best I have tasted in a long time. First sip is a burst of flavor unlike anything I have ever experienced! Awesome!! My limit is two cups of coffee for breakfast, but today, my first of my ChicaBean coffee, I HAD to have one more cup. I intend to make this coffee as a treat for my guests.
