Hope Coffee – Education for Guatemalan Girls through Coffee!


Coffee with the power to educate!

A delicious limited edition coffee created by the 6th grade girls of Hope Academy, a local Guatemalan bilingual STEAM school, to fund further education for girls.

PRESALE! Shipments start Oct. 18th (after the girls do their presentation)


El Mejor Parte de su Día Comienza Ahora!

After 10 months of visiting Chica Bean headquarters, learning all about the ins and outs of coffee alongside the Chica Bean women,
the Hope Academy 6th grade girls are finally ready to present their final project: their very own Hope Coffee roasts!


From the expected (like how to process a fruit into a coffee bean and the importance of customer surveys) to the wild (like degasification and syphons), the Hope Academy girls have delved into the science, business, and realities of the coffee industry. Together with the Chica Bean female coffee professionals, we brewed, tasted, roasted, bubbled, designed, surveyed, packaged, and pushed papers (that was probably their least favorite day)!


And through that process, the girls developed their own coffee offerings that they are excited to share with you. They enjoyed making it so much, they couldn’t decide on just one so you have the choice!

Option 1: Dark Roast
Process: Washed
Tasting Notes: Marshmallow, crispy tortillas, a warm fire

Options 2: Medium Roast
Process: Washed
Tasting Notes: Chocolate, melon, traditional candies


As part of the logistics lesson, our shipping partners at UPS/CAEX even invited us to tour the airport and get up close and personal with how the products are exported. It was an amazing and eye opening experience for all!

From learning how much work goes into making a seed into a drink to training the palette to find flavors beyond just bitter (and maybe more importantly, to stop using sugar), this program has expanded the girls’ horizons in a practical, safe, and realistically accessible way. We look forward to continuing this internship program. Your purchase will directly go to supporting further educational and mentorship programs like this, so drink up the good!

    Shipping was quick and the coffee was great. Some of the best beans I’ve ever had – the chocolate, hazelnut, and spice scents hit you as soon as you open the bag! We’ll be back in a month for our next bag.
