Guatemala Los Santos
FLAVOR: POMELO, ASSAM TEA, AGAVE
This luscious smallholder-produced offering is flavorful and balanced. When brewed as a filter coffee, it exhibits notes of pomelo, brown sugar, and dark chocolate. The tannic body of the offering is reminiscent of Assam tea and develops into sweet and lingering chocolate notes. Enjoy this delicious and smooth offering all day, every day!
This offering comes to us from smallholder producers in the Chimaltenango region near Antigua, Guatemala. Our Director of Coffee visited Guatemala earlier this year and selected these lots from Los Santos under the expertise of Luis Pedro Zelaya and the incredible Beneficio Bella Vista team. Bella Vista's strict quality standards are highly regarded in the coffee world. Dulce Elena Barrera, Bella Vista's Head Cupper of Quality Control, placed 4th in the World Cup Taster Competition this year! Beyond their coffee, we love partnering with the cafe at Beneficio Bella Vista and participate in an annual barista exchange program. This year Ted, one of our favorite baristas (and part-time production roaster), was able to work with Bella Vista's team. Enjoy!
