Cocoa & Chocolate
One of our discoveries when visiting Guatemala in 2018, is that we learned that some of the worlds finest cocoa is farmed and produced in Guatemala. The Maya Guatemalan's are the first to document the use of cocoa, like coffee specialty cocoa is not mass produced but is cultivated by individual farmers who care and develop their farms over many years.
Unlike Green coffee which is primarily exported and then roasted locally in the US, cocoa can be refined and processed into Coveture chocolate or made into cocoa powder. This added value add to the cocoa ensures that there is more economic diversity for the agricultural communities in Guatemala.
Retaining more of the production in the country or origin ensures economically more of the work and profit to remain in country. Ensuring that workers and farmers stay with their families where the jobs exist.
We work directly with CocoMiel a for profit importer that ensures that the profits are fairly distributed between the farmers and The Coffee Trust a non profit organisation that works to imrove the lives of coffee farmers and their families. Now cocoa is another farmed product that if paid above fair trade pricing can help lift many farmers out of a state of poverty in Guatemala.
Here at Trifecta Coffee Co. we are so pleased to be working with a bean to bar chocolatier and CocoMiel to bring you some of the highest quality cocoa and chocolate, there is complete transparancy regarding this product ensuring success is shared with the farmers and laborers who make this amazing product.
Welcome to Trifecta Coffee Company.
We are centrally located in Albuquerque. For many of our customers we are conveniently located but if you are just visiting from out of town you may have stopped by our shop/bakery/roastery, and now that you are home you find yourself craving our wonderful coffees. Well after many many requests to open an online store we finally got a small select group of coffees available to purchase online. This selection will vary throughout the year but we hope this will keep you coming back to try new exciting coffees that we continually discover.
All our coffees are roasted and shipped within 3-4 days of your order so be assured everything you order from us is fresh.
A WORD about roast styles, We roast our coffee a touch lighter than other shops in town and are currently offering City (light), Full City (medium), and Vienna (dark). We do not roast the same coffee several ways. The roaster picks a profile for a particular regions and tries to stick with it.
All our Coffee is roasted on a Diedrich IR-12 with the automation and most of our coffees are meticulously saved in the profiles the roaster has chosen.
