Importer:
The Sierra de los Cuchumatanes, the highest non-volcanic mountain range in Central America, is situated in the northwestern Guatemalan department of Huehuetenango. Miguel Gonzalez's farm is nestled in the foothills of these massive peaks, where he and eleven other growers contribute to El Mirador ("the lookout"). While El Mirador is usually a community blend, we're fortunate enough to have this lot from only Miguel's farm, Santa Clara. There is so much good coffee coming out of Guatemala that it's hard to keep track, but this is one of the better lots we've had from this region. The highlight of Miguel's coffee is easily its complexity, each sip tasting different than the last. Look for notes of pear and apple with some really complex baking spice qualities and a body that starts off juicy and ends up rich and creamy.
