Roaster's Notes Rebel Yell has a gentle acidity and mild sweetness wrapped in round smooth body. The toasty caramel notes come out in the aftertaste along with a delicate aromas of red berries.   

A bit about Cafe Colis Resistencia, founded by Alex Reynoso, aims to empower coffee-producing members of the Indigenous Xinka community around Mataquescuintla by accessing fair prices through international markets. Despite nearly 90% of the local population being coffee producers, most are limited to selling cherry to local intermediaries or large farms. The name reflects the Xinka people's history of resistance against Spanish colonization. Lawyer Kelvin Jimenez, one of the few remaining XInka speakers, recounts how the Spanish suppressed their language and traditions after initial resistance. In the 21st century, the Xinka sought recognition and cultural revitalization through legal means, but attention shifted to opposing the Escobal silver mine, approved without their consent, endangering their land and resources.
