Farm to Cup Story
This coffee is brought to us by Omar Olayo from his farm, La Chucita, which sits on the foothills of the "Volcan de Agua". It is a farm that has been passed down through three generations and is a true representation of the power of rebirth in agriculture. For this reason, we’ve fittingly named this offering Phoenix Guatemala. In a cup of Phoenix, you’ll experience the sweetness of blueberries paired with the delicacy of floral notes and the acidity of lemon.
In 2006, when Omar graduated from school, he started working at a company that maintained coffee mills and that is where he began to become more involved in the coffee industry. In 2011, Omar decided to take over the management of Finca La Chucita and give it new life. However, since all good things take time, it was not until the 2014/2015 harvest that Omar managed to get his first coffee production. The coffee was processed in the adaptation of a depulper and a bicycle, which helps cut down on energy costs and which Omar still uses, and fermented in the "pila" of his house (Pila is a small water tank commonly used by families in Guatemala). Finally, the coffee was dried on the terrace of his house. Since then, Polaris Coffee has worked with Omar, supporting better quality control. In the past year, they have built African beds to improve the drying process, which is how this particular lot of La Chucita was dried.
