Guatemala: Finca El Zapote

This fully washed lot is a blend of the red bourbon and red catuai varietals. Wilfrido Perez and his son Hernan have started to started specialize in micro-lots recently - working in a more detailed way separating lots and varieties and monitoring the quality of these.

Grown in the famously rich soils within the mountains of Cuilco, Huehuetenango, this is a very juicy cup, with some honeysuckle florally, pear, and almond.

Huehuetenango, is at the foot of the Cuchumatanes, the highest non-volcanic mountain range in Central America, and wind patterns sweeping in from Mexico make it possible to avoid frost when growing coffee at extreme elevation. This elevation allows the plants to respirate more freely which in turn makes each cup of this coffee naturally oh-so-much sweeter.
