ROASTER'S NOTES:

Huehuetenango is a region that has earned quite a reputation among coffee aficionados for having a very distinct cup profile.

It is close to the Mexican border on the western edge of Guatemala. Often coffee produced here has a distinctly “fruity” cup profile, quite different from many of the other regions in Guatemala.

As always, the micro-climate, soil conditions, and cultivars all play an important role in what we experience in the cup.

PRODUCTION NOTES:

Finca Los Laureles is owned by Mario Roberto Sosa. The farm was purchased in 1966 and has been in the family since then.

Many varieties exist on the farm, mostly “bourbon” and “pache.” Pache is a natural mutation of “typica” whose tree tends to stay smaller, while producing a larger than usual bean size. The variety originated or was discovered in Guatemala.

The coffee is fully washed, and sundried on elevated drying beds.

CUP CHARACTERISTICS:

The cup has a focused vibrant acidity with flavors of green apple and cherry. It is balanced with a medium body and has a lingering sweetness.

RECOMMENDED BREW METHODS:

ROASTED TO ORDER:

When you order online, your coffee is roasted the next morning (Monday-Thursday) by our artisan roasters in Olympia, WA and is packaged and shipped out to you that afternoon.

In just a few days your coffee arrives on your doorstep, ready to be brewed into the best cup of coffee possible.

OUR PROMISE:

When we find an exceptional coffee we buy it. Then the unroasted beans travel by land and by sea to the USA where our artisan roasters develop a custom roast profile for the coffee that best highlights its unique qualities.

We pay farmers fairly and build relationships that last decades. More than 30 years of experience means we have an abundance of relationships with coffee producers that grant us access to the best coffee beans in the world.
