Guatemala: Finca Santa Ana
2015 is the sixth year we have partnered with Finca Santa Ana, located in Santa Rosa between the Tecuamburro and Pacaya volcanoes and located on the mountain of La Gavia. Managed by descendants Don Lizandro - who was a coffee-grower in the 18th century, Finca Santa Ana heralds the arrival of our Direct Trade offerings from Guatemala.

Finca Santa Ana has had multiple Cup of Excellence appearances, including #4 in 2010 and top 20 this year at #16, and this lot is a fine example of a Cup of Excellence-worthy coffee. The carefully supervised quality control at the farm is evident in the cup.

As part of our Direct Trade buying philosophy, we always look for ways to invest in our farming partners -- in addition to paying a good price for the coffee. This year, we shared an investment w/ Fernando to plant new seed stock at the farm -- about 15 new varietals including Mokka and Geisha. In a few years, these shrubs will give Finca Santa Ana more varietals to sell to specialty roasters and add another dimension to this already great farm.

In this year's cup, Praline, nougat, vanilla, dark chocolate and lightly floral with a hint of orange blossom.
