La Loma, Finca Villaure, Huehuetenango
This is the fourth year we’ve bought coffee from Aurelio Villatoro and his family at Finca Villaure, and we’re really excited to share it with you once again – it definitely makes the grade.
Finca Villaure is one of the finest farms in Guatemala, evidenced by their regular placing in the Cup of Excellence competitions, and the amount of roasters who come back year after year. Once again, we have bought the La Loma lot, which is one of the hillsides where the family grow Bourbon & Caturra, although they grow other varietals on the farm too, which ranges from 1,410 – 1,850 metres.
At harvesting time, more than 40 of the extended family come together to harvest the cherries, which are processed via the fully washed method, and dried in day lots on patios at the farm, and amongst the little village of family houses that lie between the two farms they own and operate, Villaure & Esperanza.
This attention to detail and expertise results in beautiful flavours – this year you’ll find plenty of orange zest, with a lovely raisin richness, which adds to the complexity and depth, and with most Guatemalan coffees, there’s an abundance of chocolate flavours too.
It makes a beautiful espresso, super sweet milk drinks, and is a proper all-day drinker in filter and other brew methods.
