"This lot is our first purchase from The Coffee Bird. A small family run business specialising in the sourcing and supply of speciality coffee from some of Guatemala’s finest farms.
Finca Santa Barbara is one of the finest Guat’s we’ve taste all year and this particular lot scored highly in the national Cup of Excellence program.
At around 85 acres, this farm produces a number of varietals but all our semi-washed as is often the case in Guatemala. Once coffee is picked and weighed, it is taken to the fermentation tanks where the coffee cherries are poured out of the sacks, and into the tanks. They are left to ferment over night. First thing in the morning the coffee is de-pulped, washed and transported to the patios via channels.
Over the last few years, the focus on this farm (located just beyond the limits of Guatemala City) has been very technical, and each year they have refined their techniques to cultivate coffee to exacting standards. They count on a team of professionals that are permanent on the farm. Together they are experienced in experimenting in the various areas of the cultivation, processing and socio-economic diversity.
All coffees are hand picked crop by qualified pickers and processed in-house at their own wet mill guaranteeing origin and quality. Coffees are Sun dried on patios that are constantly monitored and with constant humidity checks to every lot.
On filter, we get a lovely clean balanced yet subtle acidity with hints of peach and baked apple, finishing with sweet caramel.
On espresso, its super complex and incredibly well balanced with dates, prunes, milk chocolate and salted caramel on the finish."
