We are happy to release our second Guatemalan offering of the year, this time from Antigua.
Finca San Mateo is a small 5.5 hectare farm located just north of the city of Antigua in one of Guatemala’s most beautiful and captivating valleys. The region’s rich volcanic soil and cool weather provide the perfect conditions for producing some of Guatemala’s, and for that matter, the world’s most prized coffees.
San Mateo is managed by Loyren Orzocco and this lot is a combination of Villa Sarchi and Yellow Bourbon cherries which are processed at Beneficio La Esperanza, managed by our friend Josue Morales. The mill uses traditional washing and sun-drying processes.
