How can we support our Producer Partners in a bigger way? We are diving deep and picking up larger lots from Producer's we are already partnered with to bring you, The Better Blender. From the high mountains of Huehue, to the lush valleys of Acatenango, we are separating these offerings into two profiles based on what we are tasting in the cup: Profile 1 is brighter and Profile 2 is more balanced. You shouldn't have to sacrifice for blends so we aren't skimping on bringing you the best we can find, for less.
"Onyx Coffee's Captzin blend has been an amazing solution for me. It has become a staple in some of my custom blends and, honestly, is good enough to be used on it's own as a regional offering. Really happy with this coffee and the Onyx team is great to work with!"
-Colin from Ironside Roasting Co.

We take pride in bringing our roaster partners FTO offerings that are not only traceable but delicious. We have found a great partner with the Asproguate Association and have unique offerings available based on Producer feature and profile score.
Asproguate started in 2014 lead by a group of organized producers located in Coban, Acatenango, and Chimaltenango regions.
The mission: to manage social development among small coffee producers in Guatemala providing sustainable and differentiated access to international markets.
They are accomplishing this by educating their producers with new agricultural technology, creating and sustaining long term relationships between the producer and buyer, and using sustainable practices for the environment.
55% of producing members are women and 90% of producing members belong to the Cakchiquel and Tzutujil ethnicities.
Our secret to the best decaf? The best producers + Swiss Water Process + Small Batches
El Aguacatal was founded in 1958. Don Petronilo de Jesus was elected as President of the Agriculture Cooperative to direct the production activities with several people and bring the coffee grown in Hoja Blanca to market. He was president for 5 years, but then bought 6 more hectares of land which kept him very busy-- by 1966 he was producing 300 quintales parchment. In 2004 he began working to export his coffee through Onyx.
The family is big. They are very unified, and incredibly hard workers. Petronilo de Jesus Martinez and his wife Demetria Castillo Recinos have 8 children, 23 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren. Most of the family is working in coffee at different levels, from Petronilo's award winning producer son-in-law Aurelio Villatoro to his son Petronilo, a forestry engineer. Petronilo is 74 years old now. He enjoys walking on the farm to enjoy the sunshine and sounds of the river, watching his favorite soccer teams on TV, and reading his Bible.
