Guatemala Marta Neli Omni
Creamy, vanilla, a little red wine - sounds pretty good right? Another microlot from Guatemala, this omni roast is taking the lead as our go-to every day drinker.
Marta Neli Dominguez is a second generation coffee producer who inherited her farm from her parents, which inspires and informs her very traditional processing techniques. Tradition doesn’t always have to keep you in the past though, and Marta’s artisanal approach to environmentalism (the family transport coffee with horses, which sounds pretty romantic to me), echoes how much of a contemporary issue the climate is in coffee.
Made up of the varieties Caturra and Bourbon, and grown at 1620 - 1680 masl on Marta’s farm Canchapina in Huehuetenango, this coffee is doing a pretty good job of taking over from our last Guatemala, the Josefa Perez.
