This is the second year we're buying coffee from this amazing farm and producer.
This coffee, grown at 1850MASL, is from the Sierra de las Minas region, the highest non-volcanic chain of mountains in Guatemala outside of Huehuetenango. The producers, Don Higinio Gómez and his wife Doña Aura, were among the first visionary farmers to transition into coffee over forty years ago and continue to impress. The micro climate of humid forest dominated by pine trees gives character to this coffee that we really find unique.The farm has an extension of 60 hectares where Borbon, Pache San Ramón, Castillo, and an assorted mix of unidentified yellow varietals grow under native forest shade. However, this lot is a microlot of just Pacamara that is just downright special.
The cup is a mouthful of stonefruit with milk chocolate sweetness.
