This lot from the La Libertad region is a custom blend we put together from the coffees of small producers in the area. La Libertad is in the Huehuetenango Department, and already sits at a fairly high altitude of around 1500 meters. The farms making up this lot start at about 1700 meters, and are planted almost entirely in Bourbon, save a few Typica varietals mixed in. Production is handled locally at a small wet mill, and then the coffee is patio dried. The dry parchment is transported down to a dry mill in Huehuetenango town where it is sorted and prepared for export. We spent many hours at cupping tables in Guatemala and Oakland sorting through small producer lots from the region in order to construct this regional blend.

The coffee was amazing and i would drink it everyday if it wasnâ€™t outside my budget.
