Casa Espresso - Guatemala Bosques De San Francisco - Natural

Subscription only coffee

Getting product details...

This lot is an exceptional example of what is possible from natural processing. We cupped this coffee and couldn’t stop talking about it - huge aroma mouthfeel and body, soft fruit acidity. We found notes of praline, Turkish delight and cocoa.


Location & processing

This coffee is grown in Antigua region of Guatemala, on a farm called Filadelfia by farmer Francis Dalton. The Bourbon and Caturra varietals are harvested at 1600 metres above sea level.

After the coffee is hand-picked and sorted it is laid out on patios to dry, being turned regularly to aid even drying. Once dry the coffee is de-hulled to remove the fruit from the beans.
