Single Origin Filter Coffee Description
Our coffee hails from the prolific coffee growing region on Huehuetenango in the west of Guatemala. This region stands as a testament to the centrality of coffee cultivation in the local economy, where the majority of livelihoods revolve around coffee farming. Its distinction lies not just in its geographical location but in the convergence of a diverse climate, elevated terrain, and access to plenty of water sources—all contributing to the cultivation of some of the best coffees in Latin America.
Guadalupe Bautista is a smallholder producer in the area. Her farm, Finca Alejandrina, is 14 hectares in size, with the large majority of the farmable land planted with coffee trees. Bautista meticulously tends to a range of of coffee varietals, including Bourbon, Caturra, Green, and Red Pache, each with its distinct characteristics. The coffee cherries are picked only when ripe and depulped on the same day.
The pivotal stage of sun-drying takes place on carefully curated concrete patios, a process spanning 6 to 10 days, depending on the weather. This methodical approach results in a coffee of exceptional quality, exemplifying the region's terroir.
The coffee is a complex cup that presents a juicy acidity and a lingering candy-like sweetness, with tasting notes of stewed apple, honey and lime. Guadalupe Bautista stands as a shining example of the dedication and expertise of Guatemala's smallholder farmers.
