This aromatic coffee comes from a family-operated farm in Huehuetenango, Guatemala. Tended by the third generation of Herreras with over 50 collective years of coffee experience, these tasty Caturra & Bourbon beans were grown and prepared in classic Guatemalan fashion. Grown in the high hills, this coffee was fully washed to remove all the fruit from the beans before being spread out on patios to sun-dry. It's not the fastest way to prepare coffee, but under Octavio's watchful eye we're sure it's the best for these particular flavors. All the work that went into this coffee becomes apparent even before you've finished brewing, with an intensely sweet floral aroma akin to a delicate perfume. That floral note establishes the flavor profile, accented by a bright lemon acidity that gives the cup a nice kick. Some light nutmeg and spice notes appear on the back end to round the flavors out and temper this coffee's sweetness. This is one incredible coffee, and we're beyond stoked that we get to send it your way!
