Another delicious washed lot from Guatemala anchors our filter offering. An approachable and easy going coffee, we're tasting almond and honey reminding us of nougat. Backed up by bright orange and mellow, creamy papaya, you can taste the hard work of producer Crispin Matias.
Crispin’s coffee consists of all ripe harvested cherries that are depulped on the very same day of picking. The coffee is then fermented for two days and washed in the early morning. The beans are soaked in clean, cold water (with constant circulation of fresh water). After soaking, the coffee is then sun dried for five days on patios.
FROM OUR IMPORTERS - PRIMAVERA
Don Crispin Matias lives with his wife Margarita and their six children. He explains that he came up with the name of his farm ‘The Emerald’ because he noticed that he had these beautiful gems on his farm. Crispin grew up in the country side and has always loved agriculture. However, before having his own farm, he used to have a grocery shop. At a certain moment he realized that his heart was with producing crops and decided to sell the shop and buy some land to start his coffee farm. Nowadays he feels proud on his work and achievements in the farm. He is also an active member of the ASIAST, a coffee producer association in his town.
