Chocolatey, nutty and smooth. This coffee sees a little more development in the roaster to minimize the acidity, hone in on the body and act like a warm hug.
This coffee comes to us from a farm in Guatemala by the name of Santa Ana de la Huerta. This is the first year we've purchased from Santa Ana. The farm is found on one of the mountains that form the Sierra de las Minas, in Morazan, Guatemala. The altitude varies from 1550-1650m above sea level, allowing a pretty ideal temperature for cultivating coffee.
The main varieties are Bourbon, Caturra, Villa Sarchí and Catuaí. They are also very strict with shade. Harvest is handpicked by people who have been instructed and taught on how to select only the ripest cherries. Cherries are wet milled with clean spring water and then the coffee is sun dried in patios and/or greenhouse. The coffee is left to rest for around 8 weeks, before its final preparation. Dry milling is done at Bella Vista, like our other Guatemalan offerings.
Currently this offering is only available by 340g bag or 5lb bag and will work great as both an espresso or a filter.Country: Guatemala
