IN THE CUP

This coffee has a medium body and a ripe plum-like acidity. It's sweet and juicy as a filter, it's rich and syrupy as an espresso. You can expect to taste chocolate and honeycomb almost like biting into a Toblerone.

STORY BEHIND THE CUP

We sourced this coffee from Finca La Benedicion farm owned by Amilcar Perez. His 1.2 hectare farm has just about 500 coffee trees planted. It is located in Canalaj within Huehuetenango region, which is probably the most famous coffee producing region and has the highest altitudes in the country, as high as 2,000 meters above sea level. Crisp malic and citrus acidity, full body, and toffee sweetness mark these coffees, which tend to be the most fruit-forward and can be the most complex of what Guatemala has to offer. After picking the ripe coffee, it's depulped that same day, the coffee is fermented for 18–28 hours, on average, before being washed twice or three times and laid out to dry on patios or nylon for 3–4 days.
