The Flor del Rosario estate is about 20 miles from Cobán, the capital of Alta Verapaz, and about 130 miles from Guatemala City. In addition to coffee, the farm is home to a rich diversity of tree cover, plants, and wildlife. Thousands of cedar trees provide shade cover and a habitat for birds. If you visit, you might see anything from white tailed deer and armadillo to tepezcuintle (small, spotted, adorable rodents from Central America) and a variety of wild birds.
But enough about the animals. The estate also produces beautifully balanced and complex coffees: the kind of coffee we drink all day. This one is made with Catuai beans. It is balanced and smooth, with elegant, light fruit flavors that make your tongue dance and say, “one more sip, please”.
Tasting Notes: Silky smooth body with flavors of tropical fruit.
Facts: Roasted fresh by Zingerman’s Coffee Company. Shipped whole bean.
