We’ve been working progressively closer with a bunch of small producers of Huehuetenango over the last few years, and we’re unearthing some real gems. Gems that previously would have been sold at only a tiny premium above market rate, and eventually sold as part of a regional lot by a multi-national coffee trading house. We’re super happy to have met Ader Recinos
several years ago and through him many neighbours and family members, among whom is this delight (and Ader’s cousin), Erick. In fact while we met Erick in 2018, this season we actually got to know Adiel, his father, who is still very actively involved in processing and farm management.
Agua Dulces, Huehutenango, 1850 masl.
Across two high altitude farms and three parcels (Joya Grande, Las Cuevas, La Ventana) Erick and his father Adiel have got some special stuff happening. While 2018’s purchase made a great contribution to our main espresso blend, this year .. wow, Erick!
Whole beans only.
Roasted for espresso brewing.
