Green Coffee, Guatemala, Light Brown
The volcano,Volcan de Agua, looms over the city of La Antigua, Guatemala. The locals call this volcano Hunapu, which is what this coffee is named after. The Bella Vista mill, owned and operated by Luis Pedro Zelaya, purchases freshly harvested cherries from small-scale farmers around the city. Luis and his team support their farmers by sharing growing, pruning and pest management techniques. As part of their commitment to quality, once a harvest is delivered, a sample of cherries is removed for inspection. Each lot must contain over 90% fully ripe cherries (the values are usually closer to 98%). Each respective lot usually yields between 500 and 1000 kg of green coffee and is kept separate for cupping for prospective buyers.
While a majority of the farms are situated between 1500 and 1800 meters above sea level, the lots we purchased this year are solely from producers situated around Ciudad Vieja, the old city just east of La Antigua. The coffee this year is rich and sweet like almond butter, molasses and apricot.
