Since 2011, Yellow Brick Coffee has celebrated coffee producing communities around the globe by sharing stories of its producers and uniquely roasting its coffees. By teaming up with Joe Pagac for this limited release, we are proud to honor our local community as well. Joe Pagac is a local painter and sculptor whose colorful murals liven up buildings and streets all over Tucson. We hope you enjoy this celebration of community and collaboration as much as we do. 


9 small holder farmers from the local area contributed in the production. of this coffee. La Leona is the coffee that perfectly represents the community of San Marcos, Guatemala. The lion is the symbol of the evangelist St Mark, and throughout history, it has been represented worldwide by statues, on coins, flags, and other insignias. In the department of San Marcos, there are statues of the Lion of St Mark, signifying the power of the evangelist word, the spiritual elevation of the people and their devoutness.
Due to the delicate, floral, and subtle notes of orange and honey in their coffee, this community blend is best described as the female lion! The area is surrounded by two of the highest peaks in Guatemala, the Tajumulco and Tacaná volcanoes. Tajumulco and Tacaná are very characteristic of the region, they stand out creating a beautiful sight and resulting in coffee farms having ideal volcanic fertile soil.
The producers that put together La Leona coffee are committed to quality. They have worked hard on their infrastructure over the years to improve the quality of what they do. Today, they are proud of the coffee that they produce and are excited about what the future holds
