This Caturra, Bourbon and Cataui variety lot comes to us from Peña Roja Farm in the Agua Dulce region of Huehuetenango, Guatemala. It’s a fully washed process lot from the Claveles microlot. Robin Gutierrez is the badass coffee producer who owns the farm. He owns a few lots in region and all of them produce some really great coffees year after year. Look for tasting notes of dark red fruits and merlot, with tons of crisp apple and brown sugar, somewhat caramelly.
