We have a soft spot for the super drinkable, sweet, and balanced coffees produced by the Antigua valley and processed by the Zelaya family. While they’re not hyper complex, exotic acid bombs, there’s always more than enough nuance to keep the cup interesting. This lot from Hacienda Bella Carmona is composed of peak harvest Bourbon and Typica cherries, and we find comforting flavors of marzipan, honey, caramel, at the foundation, with hints of dried red berries and slightly tart green fruits in the rounded acidity.
Coffee is a seasonal fruit; we only offer coffees within a certain window of freshness (9 – 13 months past harvest). Our high standards and an unending focus on increasing sweetness, solubility, and pleasant flavors through the roasting process that have lead to great reputation in the specialty coffee industry and beyond.
