Located in the southern mountainous region of Guatemala the Santa Rosa region is home to 250 smallholder farmers who contribute to this Boqueron coffee.
The farmers harvest between December and February, ensuring the crop is at its peak ripeness. They bring their cherry to the wet mill in one delivery ensuring the best results and uniformity of the crop.
After removing any small sticks and leaves, the cherry is sundried on patios until a desired moisture content of12% is reached.
Although this particular batch of coffee is not Rainforest Alliance Certified, the Mill which processes the coffee in this region is.
This certification has helped the farmers and mill operators make positive changes for the community including installing a water treatment facility.
The careful selection of cherry during harvest and natural sundrying leaves this coffee with notes of strawberry, cherry, tropical fruit and caramel.
