Guatemala Los Cipreses 250g Roast Date 16/09/19
Roasted for filter: Best enjoyed as a pour over, without milk, to allow the subtleties of the light roast to emerge.
Rogelio Aguirre, 3rd generation farmer, and producer of fan favourite Cup of Excellence, El Limonar has recently inherited Los Cipreses. Taste notes of Red Apple, Molasses & Roasted Hazelnut in this washed Guatemalan microlot
This is our fourth year working with Rogelio, farmer of both our El Limonar & El Comedor microlots. He has recently inherited a new plot, growing Mundo Novo in the mountains of Huehuetenango.
Los Cipreses (Cypress) is appropriately named after the Cypress trees scattered around the farm that shade the coffee.
Rogelio Jr. was raised on the farm and taught how to take care of it and produce exceptional coffee and is now a 3rd generation farmer!
El Limonar has recently placed well in the Guatemalan Cup of Excellence, so we're excited to see how this plot progresses with Rogelio's expertise on hand at the farm!
With a focus on sustainability, Rogelio has invested in an on-site wet mill, purifying and recycling wastewater. He also reuses the spent coffee pulp to fertilize the farm land.
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.
