Coffee production started at Culpan in 1867, early on in Guatemala’s coffee history. Since then, coffee production has expanded to become one of Guatemala’s main crops, and premium specialty growers have consistently impressed the world with their exquisite coffees. The Rivas family took the reins at Culpan in 2008, and have emphasized specialty coffee production practices like patio drying and lot separation while carrying on the legacy of the farm.</p>

This lot of washed Pacamara coffee gives off some serious summer vibes with a bright, tropical flavor profile. Keep an eye out for crisp acidity courtesy of the starfruit note and notice how well it combines with the juicy tangerine flavor to create a coffee that’s both sharp and juicy. It’s such a delight that coffee this light and playful can come from a farm with such history. We love how Guatemalan coffee culture continues to grow and evolve, and we're excited to see what they’ll be up to next. And in the meantime, we'll keep finding our favorite lots and sharing them with you. Enjoy!</p>

I loved that interesting tropical fruit taste in this coffee. Sharp and juicy are good descriptors.

Culpan Coffee

I liked this coffee. It has a strong yet mild taste (if that makes sense), its very smooth to the pallet. I detected no bitterness whatsoever. It has a hint of fruitiness and a pleasant aroma. I will buy again!

Nice mild coffee with terrific aroma. As others noted, it's very flavorful but not dark. This is my first shipment of coffee and I'm impressed even though I generally prefer darker roasts.

Hi Ben, Glad you enjoyed the coffee! If you're a fan of darker roasts, you should definitely check out our Classic Series where we specifically select coffees with a more traditional, chocolatey taste. You can update your account to include Classic coffees via your preferences tab, and we'll have one to you for your next shipment!
