Tasting Notes:

Having cupped this coffee side-by-side with the other Guatemalan offerings we have on deck this year, it was very clear that the light body this bean boasted was unlike any of its peers. The ability to encapsulate that classic Guatemalan sweetness while providing a very nice and delicate mouthfeel made this coffee stand out as a unique and dynamic hit. With a constant sweetness that we pinpointed as a wafer or nougat-like note paired with just a subtle fruited acidity, this bean just tastes delicious; it’s simply an enjoyable coffee. Not to mention the tea-like mouthfeel makes it hard to believe it’s a washed process mix of carurra, catuai, and bourbon varieties. This is a delicious cup that you’ll just have to taste for yourself.

Bella Vista Coffee Production

Arcenio Castillo Villatoro, owner of Finca Bella Vista, grew up with his father in the village “La Cipresada” in La Libertad, Huehuetenango. Where he learned how to prepare good coffee with care and dedication. Arcenio's main Bella Vista lots are typically dried in parchment in the traditional method, on his rooftop patios. This smaller separation lot from his Bourbon and Caturra lot is dried more slowly and evenly, on raised African beds beneath shaded canopies.

I'm sure that you've seen notes on our website about how 'We don't roast until you want it." or "Roasted Fresh After You Order", but have you thought about why and how we setup our business to do that?
