Guatemala El Limonar 250g Roast date 19/02/18
A truly special lot this year from our farming partner Rogelio Aguirre. Rogelio has surprised us by hand-picking only the Maragogype cherries (larger than usual beans) throughout his farm. Taste sweet notes of Honey, Nectarine and Caramel Apple
This is our second year working with Rogelio Aguirre. Last year we noticed Rogelio grew Maragogype (A variety typically known for its surprisingly large beans).
However, the coffee plants were dispersed around the farm, processed and mixed with other varieties causing the rarity of the cherry to be lost.
We are extremely proud to be working with such a dedicated team of people and to share this limited lot.
The picked cherries are brought to the wet mill at the bottom of the valley where they are pulped and fermented for 14-16 hours. The coffee is then washed in channels and soaked in clean water for another 24 hours. The coffees are then dried on concrete patios slowly over 8 to 10 days. Before being exported the coffee was milled and processed in Cafcom’s dry mill in Palin, which is currently the official mill for all CoE microlots.
