Los Santos - Warmth Espresso
ORIGIN: SAN JOSE POAQUIL, CHIMALTENANGO, GUATEMALA
VARIETY: CATUAI, TYPICA, CATURRA, BOURBON
This coffee is from the municipality of San José Poaquil in Chimaltenango, Guatemala. It is a collection of different harvests grown largely by indigenous, small holder farmers surrounding the Bella Vista Mill where ripe cherry is brought daily to be processed.
Like many indigenous towns in this region, San José Poaquil suffered under severe military repression in the early 1980s. The community has since turned to specialty coffee and has been growing it for the past 20 years. This is the first year that Bella Vista has brought us this coffee, and we are excited to add this delicious coffee to our warmth coffee lineup.
