Our 5th generation farming family in this region of Guatemala has a unique approach to their coffee harvest. Instead of shade providing sheeting to protect their coffee juveniles from the sun and its harsh rays, the farm grows pollen producing saplings alongside its coffee to provide rest bite from the UV and heat. These saplings are then pruned gradually over time which controls the amount of sun reaching the coffee plants which then encourages correct growth and ripening. The sudden removal of sheeting however, would burn the coffee plant and disrupt even, gradual growth, hence affecting flavour in the coffee cherries.

The Holiday Season

Hi everyone, we plan a 10 day break which means our last Roasting day will be Mon 10th Aug. Please can any orders be placed by 17:00 on this day so we can ensure they arrive with you on time. Our next planned Roast day is Sat 22nd Aug. Apologies for this stopgap. When we are back we plan to launch two types of Kenyan single origin, one of which is a tiny 30 Kg auction microlot from Kamwangi and the other a pea berry from the Kisii estate. Thanks for your patience
