There aren't many coffees we like to see appear back on our menu more than La Folie. This is such a stunner every year, and this year is no exception. La Folie 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 is our first offering from Antigua this year, and one that shouldn't be missed. It's got tons of really sweet stone fruit qualities with the classic toasted nuttiness that we've come to love.
