This coffee launches with a sweetly resinous fragrance of chocolate and roasted almonds. These carry into flavor notes, joined by buttered toast and honey. Sweet, rounded acidity and a smooth, silky mouthfeel lend a rounded and juicy profile to this shade grown coffee.
In the heart of the highlands of Nim Jul (Big Jewel) lies Finca San Antonio de Esquipulas, founded in 1971. Here Radames Sagastume and his mother Evangelina are committed to growing exceptional coffee. Among their workers are local employees that have been on the farm since its inception. Together they work to preserve the richly diverse biosphere, employing environmentally-friendly practices including use of organic material to enrich the soils and absence of pesticides.
Finca San Antonio de Esquipulas processes its coffee on site, having its own wet mill and drying patios. Warm and welcoming, the Sagastume family is a fine example of sweet and gracious Guatemalan hospitality and pursuit of excellence in coffee.
