From Casa Espresso:

We have chosen this stunning coffee together with the washed from the same mill.

The cherries are dried for 19-20 days on patio. This is Ayarza’s first year at processing naturals, and what a great coffee for their first time at it.

Based in Santa Rosa, south east of Guatemala, the coffee is produced by Cooperativa El Porvenir R.L. The co-operative includes 28 small farms. Olam Specialty who is the importer, works directly with the farmers, and rents this mill for a number of years to boost the quality of production from this area. They have installed new equipment, and oversee the specialty preparations.
