Foundry Coffee Roasters: Las Terrazas - Guatemala - Washed

Sorry - Sold out - it's been popular!

Getting product details...

From Lee @ Foundry Coffee Roasters:

In the cup, you can expect a refined coffee with orange, caramel and cherry cola notes.

Las Terrazas is situated in the middle of a limestone valley in La Libertad, Huehuetenango. The valley creates a stable microclimate, protecting the farm from extreme weather conditions. This, along with the chalky soils contributes to the dense, syrupy body, and pronounced malic acidity in the cup.

Coffee grows at up to 2100 masl here, giving the cup a very refined acidity and floral characteristics. Las Terrazas was purchased by Renardo Ovalle Vides in 2012, with the intention of growing different varietals such as SL28, pacas, pacamara, typical and geisha. Renardo has also been experimenting with honey and natural processing, and has built a parabolic drier in order to create a clean cup in the humid conditions.

Large parts of the farm are protected areas of wild forest, much of which is used to prevent soil erosion and reduce the plants exposure to winds. This is based on a permaculture model, with the intention of sustainability and respect for the environment, to try and recreate coffee’s natural habitat in high altitude forests.
