Finca Santa Anita, near the town of Purulhá, is about 100 miles northeast of Guatemala City. The farm is situated in a small, picturesque valley that receives considerably more rainfall than surrounding areas. For this reason, the folks on the farm cannot dry their coffee on a traditional patio. Instead, they use wood-fired guardiolas—mechanical dryers—to expel moisture from the beans before milling, sorting, and shipping.
This coffee is the whole package: well balanced, crisp, smooth, and with enough other stuff going on—cocoa, citrus—to keep things interesting.
Tasting Notes: Citrus brightness with floral and cocoa notes.
Facts: Roasted fresh by Zingerman’s Coffee Company. Shipped whole bean.
