La Coop Coffee Co. is located at 5505 1st St, NW, Washington, DC, 20011. It is a family owned and operated business that works with a coffee coop in Union Cantinil, Huehuetenango, Guatemala. Maybe it is a bit like Divine Chocolate (which you can buy in Yes Market and other DC stores)? Here is what they are about:
We source directly from a coffee cooperative formed by our founder in his hometown of Union Cantinil, Huehuetenango, Guatemala. We always ensure farmers receive the fairest price for their product and that each cup of La Coop coffee we bring to our customers is of the highest quality.
Through this direct trade relationship we bring our customers single origin specialty coffee that not only tastes good, but helps make a difference in the lives of hard working coffee farmers in Guatemala. Our founder grew up farming the same coffee he is now roasting and serving locally in the Washington, D.C. area. Through La Coop, he now gets to share a little bit of the Guatemala he knows with the world.
P.S. The current landlord is trying to evict La Coop, so help this great organization! More info on the evil landlord: https://www.facebook.com/photo?fbid=10219916206110296&set=gm.638170230184083
