This coffee reminds me of an African coffee, with juicy notes. Fruit forward, but not a fruit bowl. Roasted medium gives it a more balanced approach while not sacrificing all of the complexity. Great to spice things up from your normal cocoa, nutty, medium roast.
Our new micro-lot Guatemalan coffee comes from Finca La Bendicion, through our partners Truth Trading Company. 85 years ago Vicente Gomez and his wife Maria Reyes purchased a plot of land in the village of Sanguayaba, Palencia. This 42-hectare property produces both washed and natural processed coffees, however we’ve always been partial to washed coffees for their crisp, clean flavor.
Many years later Vicente and Maria’s son Jose Gomez inherited the farm and began planting potatoes and corn. Dairy cattle were also raised on the land, but it was short-lived as many of the animals fell to their death on the steep hills.
In 1997 Jose Gomez rebranded the land and began growing coffee. He called it Finca La Bendicion. Today he works with his son Jose and they are experimenting with new varieties, in addition to building their own wet mill with African Beds for drying.How You Help Buying Our San Guayaba Guatemala
