Hailing from western Guatemala, in the city of Huehuetenango, this delicious coffee comes from a farm that has been hitting the mark for 65 years. Grown at the Las Bromelias farm, this coffee has been tended to by an industry veteran named Nayo Ovalle. Nayo has been consistent in bringing the coffee industry high quality coffees throughout his tenure at Las Bromelias. Crop after crop, Nayo has mastered the art of bringing the best of the best.
The Las Bromelias farm is one of several owned and operated by the Vides family, who have been responsible for exporting some of the finest coffees to come from Guatemala. These farms focus on three impact areas in everything they do: Social, Agricultural, and Environmental. Socially, they push to work together with the communities that surround their farms to support the development of their region. Agriculturally, they operate with agronomists who teach those who work at the farms to work sustainably and in accordance with the Rainforest Alliance standards. And environmentally, they focus on conserving the ecosystems they work in and alongside by the efficient use of water and the respect and protection of wildlife in and around their farms.
Our lot from Nayo and the Las Bromelias farm is a washed process blend of Caturra and San Ramon varieties. While Caturra is a common varietal across Central and South America, San Ramon is not something we see everyday. It’s an off-shoot of the Typica variety, which tends to deliver a big body and big sweetness. Prepare for a juicy and delicious cup of coffee that will have your Meemaw’s apple pie taking the backseat at your next gathering. This coffee is sure not to disappoint and will have you feeling refreshed sip after sip. Take a seat, grab a number, this coffee is here to take you through to the end of summer.
