Private Collection Auction of

Guatemalan Specialty Coffee

The auction will be July 28, 2022.

The National Coffee Association of Guatemala (Anacafé) and Alliance for Coffee Excellence (ACE) have come together to launch the second edition of the “One of a Kind Guatemala” auction, marking the auction’s first Private Collection Auction installment. With the goal of expanding market access for producers while showcasing Guatemala’s innovative nano and micro-lots, the One of a Kind auction will help to introduce lesser-know producers to the world.

“The dedication and experience of the producers who grow these coffees under shade, the hand picking of each coffee cherry at the exact point of maturity, microclimates, types of soil, altitudes in mountainous and volcanic areas, combine to produce one of the best coffees in the world, coffees from Guatemala” (Ana Lucrecia Glaesel, Marketing Coordinator at Anacafé).
