Gaspar Diaz Domingo is a first-generation coffee producer from the town of Concepcion Huista in Huehuetenango. The name of Gaspar’s farm, Tipoj, means “white sands” in Popti (the local indigenous language.) It’s inspired by the farm’s sandy white soil.
Our trader, Primavera specializes in Guatemalan coffees. Last year they set high expectations when they brought us El Aguacate and they didn’t disappoint this year. We instantly fell in love with Gaspar’s coffee. Tipoj is intensely sweet, its crisp and clean, but still has a full body.
Look for sweet raisin’s, a gooseberry acidity, and a dark chocolate lime zest aftertaste.

Gaspar Diaz Domingo on his collaboration with Primavera
“We are a coffee growing family, focused on producing high quality coffee and caring for our environment from the beginning. The cooperative El Sendero, in collaboration with Primavera, helps us train ourselves to produce even better coffee and adapt to climate change”
Gaspar picks only the ripest cherries, which are then depulped and fermented for 36 hours. The coffee is washed, soaked in fresh water from the local spring for 12 hours, and dried on sun soaked patios for 6 full days.
