Notes from Slightly Coffee Roasters:
Flavor notes: Plum, Chocolate and Caramel
We are finally getting in season coffees from Guatemala, and we couldn’t be happier about it! This coffee is delicious and easy to drink, as it has a mellow acidity and an approachable even body and sweetness. This is a fine coffee for those looking for “just a good cup of coffee”.
Notes from our sourcing partner:
Varietal: Caturra, Bourbon, Catuai, Typica, Pacamara
Location: Huehuetenango, Guatemala
Producer: Finca Joya Grande, Finca Vasquez, Finca la Maravilla and other small farms.
Finca Joya Grande was established in 1976 as a very small coffee plantation operation. Access to the farm at that time was very limited and fertilizers and nurseries had to be transported by horses. Given the farm's topography, coffee is the only agricultural product that can be planted but with the advantage of a superb quality production. All coffee pulp resulting from the wet mill process is utilized as organic fertilizer. The farm works under a strict shade-grown policy and also has forest conservation areas that provide shelter to many native fauna and flora species. Finca Vasquez was established in 1980 when Don Jose Vasquez moved from Colotenango to the coffee lands La Libertad, Huehuetenango. He moved to this region, looking for better opportunities and placed a bet on his beautiful farm. The current owners of the farm are Genaro and Juan Vasquez (son and grandson of Don Jose). Both of them are quality oriented, keeping the same practices and varietals as Don Jose once did. Finca La Maravilla was acquired in 1997 from an extension of El Injerto II.
