La Bella is regarded as one of the best farms in Guatemala, despite being in the rainforest region which is not typically known for growing exceptional coffee. This year we have a Pacamara that has previously won 4th place in the prestigious Cup of Excellence.

Despite their difficult conditions the team at La Bella have managed to successfully produce competition-winning lot after lot. Meticulous growing practices, farmer education, and a careful drying process have led to a quality end cup.

Process

Once the ripe cherries have been pulped, fermented and washed, they are soaked in running water for 12-18 hrs as this minimises the risk of contamination during the fermentation and washing process, producing clean and transparent flavours in the final cup.
