NICE

This Natural Processed Castillo coffee comes from an educational micro mill that is owned by Banexport. This micromill educates farmers on how to make more money for their coffee and pays them more at the same time (Anywhere between 1.3 to 1.7 X the value to encourage only the best practices)  Banexport also pays for the coffee upon the whole cherries arriving at the mill so that farmers do not have to take short term loans that could cost upwards of 70% interest.

This specific coffee is from the farm Napoles owned by Teodelinda Arce Flor and now managed by her son Darly in the village of Los Pinos.  After being picked, the cherries are fermented for 48 hours in concrete tanks that have been sealed with plastic, then dried until the desirable moisture is achieved of 10.2%

We have roasted this coffee to a level that we feel presents all of the extraordinary flavours and balances them out with good sweetness and low acidity making it a great coffee to drink on its own, or blend with a little Naughty.

This coffee reminds us of Fresh Cranberries and oranges with a big body

NAUGHTY

This fully washed coffee was cultivated in the Lake Atitlan region in Guatemala's highlands. The Atitlan region is known for its excellent volcanic soils that produce some of the world’s finest coffees. This lot came from Cerro Lancandon Chochajau, a farm operation that cultivates over 33 hectares with 27 producers contributing to the farm.  This coffee is a variety of Bourbon, Caturra, Catuai & Typica

The lake is surrounded by 12 Indigenous villages, inhabited by predominantly Kakchiquel and Tz’utujil. Traditional clothing is worn in the villages around the

lake. Its location at 1,600 Meters above sea level and proximity to the equator provides a year-round, spring-like climate.  It is often called the “Land of Eternal Spring” for its exceptional weather. There are 22 distinctive linguistic groups, not dialects, but completely different languages that are spoken around the lake.

When blended with Nice the chocolate notes in this coffee stand out more than ever until you try it on its own. 

This coffee reminds us of milk chocolate, ripe pears and brown sugar
