Guatemala Santa Isabel
We have an incredibly special microlot from Guatemala that I hope everyone gets to try. It just arrived in the USA in March 2015 and is our first Central American coffee arrival of the 2015 crop season. If you are local to Western PA, you may have seen cards sitting out at our cafes where you can drink a cup of this coffee, and sign your name and add a note. Those cards will go directly to the farmer who grew this coffee, and he is bi-lingual, so he will be able to appreciate your kind words.
This is a sun-dried coffee, completely processed by hand, giving it all the sweetness, fruity, floral notes of an Ethiopian. But being a Guatemalan also gives it a white-chocolate taste and wonderful smoothness. This is unheard of in Guatemala, but the effort and attention paid off — this is not a coffee you will quickly forget, and the demand from repeat customers has been overwhelming in these first couple of weeks. We originally hoped to have enough stock to last us through the summer, but at this rate it looks like it may be gone before summer even arrives.
