From Artisan Roast:

The immense beauty of highland Huehuetenango is characterised by dramatic lush, mountainous valleys rolling on and on into the distance. Each valley has a unique micro-climate and the region produces distinct and diverse coffees that represent their terroir so well.

Finca Villaure has it’s own distinct and unique flavour profile, formed by the surrounding landscape and weather patterns. The farm lies to the North-West of Huehetenango, almost within touching distance of the border with Mexico. Cold nights and ideal soil make the location perfect for coffee growing and the farm, an acronym of Aurellio Villatoro’s name since purchase, has been a proven winner in many a quality competition. The farms supporting sustainability standards help complement Aurellio’s wholistic approach to coffee growing and commitment to quality.

Kept lighter in the roast Villaure is smooth and silk like in texture. Blanched almond and caramel form the main flavours followed by velvet like milk chocolate notes, grape, and hints of delicate black tea. Clean, sweet, and bright with an orange like acidity that adds complexity on the finish makes the coffee perfect for filter, aeropress or French press brewing.
