For the 3-2021 release, we’re roasting from the Santiago region in Guatemala. This offering has a dark brown sugar sweetness with notes of candied almond and chocolate covered walnut.
This coffee comes to us from the Lake Atitlán area of Santiago. It consists of several different lots of coffee from small-holder local coffee farmers, most of whom are of indigenous Mayan origin. Nestled between the volcanoes of Toliman, Atitlán and San Pedro, the area contains nutrients rich in volcanic activity. The altitude varies between approximately 1500 and 1600 meters above sea level. The whole cherry coffee is sold to a local farmer who has a medium-sized milling facility in Santiago, where it is processed and dried on cement patios.
The coffee is balanced and bittersweet, with a round mouthfeel, and works well with various brewing techniques, including espresso.
We have a very limited amount available for this release.
