Tasting Series: El Amate
Origin: Huehuetenango, Guatemala
Father Petronilo Martinez and son, Petronilo Jesus, manage this farm on the Mexican Border. They named their farm after the avocado trees that were planted throughout the plantation. El Aguacatal was founded in 1958 by Petronilo's father, Gumercindo Martir Martinez, who left the farm to him. Petronilo de Jesus Martinez and his wife, Demetria Castillo Recinos, have 8 children, 23 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren. Most of the family is working in coffee at different levels, from Petronilo's award-winning producer son-in-law Aurelio Villatoro to his son Petronilo, a forestry engineer.
We are very excited to share this natural processed coffee as a tasting series offering. This coffee is layered with delicate florals, tart black cherry, and chocolate, and has a creamy body that is delicious to the last drop. Take a moment to savor this one; it is wonderful.
