This coffee hails from a 150-year-old finca nestled high up on the Fraijanes Plateau in the mountains Southwest of Guatemala City. Franciscan monks located this fertile pocket in 1876 and founded Finca Agua Tibia. Old growth varietals have been cultivated in the rich volcanic soil since 1940s, growing under a canopy of shade trees, fitting for the name Palo Alto Azul translated as “tall, blue tree”. Rich, lingering flavors, a full, smooth body, and a powerfully aromatic cup; the many qualities emerging from our new Guatemala Palo Alto Azul. Try a fresh roast today and discover notes one taster described as reminiscent of chocolate, apricot, pecan pie, and apple. At Finca Agua Tibia farmers strictly adhere to old traditional methods as a way to ensure quality and consistency. Growing and harvesting practices are extremely primitive excluding any use of machinery. During harvest coffee is picked, sorted and processed by hand, using fresh mountain stream water. The resulting quality of the farmers’ traditional methods and this coffee’s long history are exemplified in the cup.
