Freshly roasted coffee sent to you directly from Jericho coffee roasters.
Coffee name: Maya
Notes of: Dark chocolate, boozy, black tea and caramel
Grown in: Guatemala
This is an absolute cracker of a coffee. A favourite as an espresso based drink. Add milk and it tastes of butterscotch and caramel. It's also great as a full bodies cafetiere, with plenty of richness. Very smooth, delicate and balanced.
The Farms of Antigua and the Antigua Regional lots are comprised of coffee from farms in the Antigua region in the south of Guatemala. A large portion of 2021’s Antigua Regional comes from a community of 43 producers located on the Volcán de Agua which towers above the Pacific coastal plain to the south and the Guatemalan Highlands to the north. The other coffees come from the larger historic farms of Antigua: Fincas Covadonga, La Guadelupe, San Inacio, Santa Barbara and San Carlos.
Los Volcanes Coffee (LVC) buys the entire harvest in cherry from these farms, using a uniform pricing strategy that results in the highest price in the region. The producers are paid within two weeks of their coffee being received at Beneficio La Esperanza for processing. Josué Morales, LVC’s founder and director, coordinates with community leaders to orchestrate the pick-up of cherries. Trucks leave every morning and return to the Beneficio La Esperanza mill in the evenings loaded with cherries.
The producers contribute their labour, land and coffee, and use the infrastructure of LVC and Beneficio La Esperanza for collection and processing. LVC provides tea or composted pulp to some of the producers to improve soil quality, while all of these producers have been involved with LVC’s workshops at Finca La Esperanza, benefitting from classes on compost, shade, spacing and picking, among others.
