Finca Los Coles sits 1600 meters up from the nearby Aldea El Pajal in the Huehuetenango region of Guatemala. Florindo Camposeco grows his two varietals under a canopy of chalum and gravilea trees which help to shade the smaller coffee trees, but also act to keep soil healthy and replace lost elements like nitrogen as they are used up in the growing process.
The coffee is fermentated for an average of 32hours before being washed and soaked in fresh water for a further 24 hours. The greens are then patio dried for around 12 days.
The great care that is taken at every stage by Florindo shows as this particular coffee jumped out of our Guatemala tasting table as something very unusual and very special. We managed to snag the only bag in Scotland and this super sweet and complex Guat is a real treat.
