Guatemala Santa Marta
This coffee puts a smile on our faces and is a great example of what a Guatemalan coffee can taste like. Sweet red berries and milk chocolate.
This one is from the Santa Marta farm owned by David Rodríguez Batres in the Mataquescuintla region in New Orient.
With an altitude of 1800 - 2200 masl it is at quite a high elevation for Guatemalan coffees.
It was harvested in January and February of this year, washed processed and sun-dried (like the tomatoes) on their patios. Like our Brazil its of the Yellow Catuai variety but thats about all it shares in common. Its sweet milk chocolate with a gentle yellow fruit (think apricot or nectarine) acidity and red berry notes and it’s very pleasant drinking all day long!
