Guatemala Santa Ana SL-28 Natural Microlot

This is the 4th year we're buying from one of our favorite producers in Guatemala, the wonderful Nando Diaz. This lot is from his Santa Ana farm, one of several small farms in Santa Rosa, nestled between the Tecuamburro and Pacaya volcanoes, covered in beautiful shade trees adjacent to rainforests. And high up on the hills, at 1800MASL. Here's a great video on the family and their farms whose coffees have won several awards. 

Coffee has been in Nando's blood since the 18th century, when his family began coffee farming. Nando has taken the baton and moved his farms into specialty, with a focus on quality and tons of experimentation, including with processing.

This is a rare, tiny lot of naturally processed coffee of the SL-28 variety (normally found in Kenya). We're here combining the best of both world. The acidity of a Kenyan coffee with the body and richness of a Guatemala coffee.

This lot is exceptional. We taste mousse, pear and citrus zest.
