Guatemalas are BACK! We are beyond excited to start the season with our old friend, La Folie. This farm has been managed since 2003 by Luis Pedro Zelaya, a coffee agronomist who also owns and operates the Bella Vista Beneficio. It is orderly and clean; the rows of coffee are evenly spaced, the rows of gravillea shade trees are perfectly spaced and nearly identically sized. It’s a sight to see! It is an impressively managed farm and the continued growth in output and increase in quality over the years are testament to the detailed care that goes into it. This year we selected two lots from La Folie: this first offering sparkles with lemon candy sweetness. Enjoy!
All of our coffees are roasted to order and shipped as whole beans. We roast on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays and ship out the following day. Orders are roasted based on demand. Thanks!
