Finca La Merced - Guatemala

    Cup Characteristics: Lively and sweet, with a buttery caramel aroma turning into a cherry apricot finish.

    Near the town of San Martin Jilotepeque, Guatemala, the Ortega family grow these Bourbon trees 1800 meters above sea level. The cherries are processed in the traditional washed process, de-pulped to remove the skin of the fruit before they are soaked for approximately 24 hours to ferment and loosen the sticky mucilage that surrounds the bean.

    Process: Washed and sundried
    Varietal: Bourbon
    Region: Chimaltenango
    Altitude: 1,800 meters
    Harvest Period: December through April
    Acidity: Lively and Sweet

    90 Points - COFFEE REVIEW 2015

    What Coffee Review had to say:

    Blind assessment: Crisply sweet, cocoa-toned. Cocoa, baked apple, vanilla bean, elm in aroma and slightly savory cup. Gently rounded acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Baked apple and elm carry into a sweet-savory finish.

    Who should drink it: The slightly savory, baked apple edge makes an argument for a place on the holiday table for this resonant Guatemala Bourbon.
