ROASTER'S NOTES:

The Herrera Family has over 50 years of history producing exemplary coffees in the San Pedro Necta area of Huehuetenango.

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:

The La Esperanza farm, owned by Octavio Herrera, is small, totaling just over 13 hectares. This particular lot is 100% caturra.

The caturra variety is considered a dwarf bourbon, shorter and smaller in stature but still heavy yielding. In addition to coffee production, the Herrera family also produces a significant amount of coffee blossom honey from their farm.

This is a fully washed and sundried coffee. Only the ripest cherries are harvested for processing. Careful sorting is the key to top quality potential in the cup. The coffee is dried on elevated beds and typically takes over 10 days.

CUP CHARACTERISTICS:

This is a classic cup profile from one of the world’s most renowned growing areas. The cup has a focused vibrant acidity with flavors of green apple and raisin. 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.
