This coffee is a new staple of the shop, we use it for our batch brew every day.
We sourced this coffee on an origin trip to Guatemala with Onyx Coffee Importers.
Driving the narrow mountain road up an impossibly steep slope to Finca La Colmenita, or "The Beehive", the views are striking. The valley stretches out below, and our own family farm, Finca Vista Hermosa sits just beneath. There's a reason this area is called Buena Vista!
When Francisco Cardona Martin bought La Colmenita in 2002, he had a vision: To produce the best quality coffees possible, by planting varieties known for excellence in separation, and investing heavily in equipment and farming techniques. Francisco is incredibly resourceful, drying his coffee on a patio he built on top of his house and investing nearly all profits from coffee sold back into the farm. He often attends cuppings with our QC team in Huehue to develop his skills and to learn where he can improve.
