Visiting Julio Melendez in 2020 was one of our favourite farm visits so far. It’s not only the quality of his coffee, cleanliness of his washing station, or the prizes he won that grew our appreciation, but also his humbleness and kindness. At MOK we believe that aside from cup quality, a good connection with the producer is necessary to create a sustainable relationship. Together we ate homemade Pepián, one of the oldest dishes of Guatemala and sipped rum on his terrace watching Fuego spit flames. Coffee is as much about technicalities as as it is about the creative souls behind it.
