Farm Description

Produced by five farms in the Cubulco region of Guatemala:  Las Anonas, Las Naranjas, La Esperanza, Grano de Oro and Finca las Piedras. Cubulco is situated near the Sierra de las Minas and Sierra de Chuacus mountain ranges. Moist clay soil and a rainy and temperate-to-cold climate help the cherries mature slowly and develop the coffee's signature notes of milk chocolate, citrus and hazelnut.

Cubulco is part of the department of Baja Verapaz, a region with improving living conditions and a high percentage of indigenous peoples, who are descendants of the Achi ethnic group.  The area's coffee producers are smallholders who use traditional agricultural practices and operate their own wet mills.

Processing

Wet Process - Coffee cherries are selectively handpicked, de-pulped, naturally fermented, washed and sun dried. After the coffee reaches a moisture level between 10.5 and 11.5 percent, the parchment coffee is stored. Before export, the coffee is milled, screened, classified by weight/density, sorted by color and, after resting, packaged in GrainPro bags.
