Our new arrival from Finca Las Moritas comprises everything we love about coffees from Guatemala. In the cup, this coffee has mild acidity, a rich and choclatey body and gives way to a creamy buttery finish.
Cupping notes: Honey Crisp Apple, Dark Salted Caramel, Toasted Almond
A little bit about the Producer:
Don Higinio and his wife Doña Aura bought their first small plot of land in 1988, naming it San José Las Moritas. The first coffee seeds planted here were given to Don Higinio from his father. They began with less than a hectare of land, planting bourbon varietals and small trees. Nestled in the mountains of Sierras de Las Minas an altitude of 1,200-1,800 meters with various types of terrain, soil, and climates, this land makes for diverse growing conditions. Now Las Moritas has 70 Hectares of land with 56 hectares devoted to coffee.
