In June 2012, Vigilante Coffee Company, along with 7 other roasters from around the country, were invited to join and contribute beans to a Guatemalan cupping challenge. Each roaster provided their own Farm-Direct Guatemalan coffee, highlighting Guatemala's diverse coffee profiles and roasts. Guatemalan coffee has recently received increased attention for winning various awards and competitions, and is quickly becoming a consumer favorite.
Vigilante's cupping contribution was from Frijanes. The coffee was favorably received by other roasters and coffee professionals. This unique coffee offers notes of molasses, toasted almond and orange.
