Guatemala Proyecto Xinabajul-Valle de Cantinil

from 9.00

 

This is a single-farm coffee from which we purchased a few small lot separations this year, each one earning top placement amongst other offers from the region. Valle de Cantinil is a single farm coffee in San Pedro Necta, a sub-region of Huehuetenango perched on the spiny mountain highlands. The coffee is grown around 1800 meters, and is planted in mostly bourbon and caturra. 

This coffee is part of our Farm Gate pricing program.

 

Cupping Notes

The fragrance of this micro lot has plum and pectin-sweet jam smells. There's a buttery-sweetness too. The smells leading up to the cup are fantastic, the sweetness reaching pinnacle proportion with the addition of hot water. It's like baked apple or peach, with brown sugar and butter crumble, a kind-of candied sugar and fruit pectin sweetness. This is a beautiful Guatemalan cup with  balanced flavors of sweet and bitter, fruited expressions that are well integrated into the overall cup character.
