This year we continued our work in Huehutenango, Guatemala with our friends at the CODECH cooperative in Concepción Huista. We also participated in a great event that we call The Best of Concepcíon. This is a coffee competition that dozens of farmers enter with the hopes of their coffee landing in the top positions.
We picked the 3rd place winner from the competition to be our Best of Concepcion coffee for 2017. It is a lot from the ADIPY cooperative and is quite floral and caramelly with clean strawberry-like fruity character. It makes for both an interesting and tasty cup for those who like something more acidity-focussed. Try The Best of Concepcíon now.
We also selected a lot out of the top 10 that has a very powerful jammy/fruity character that probably results from this coffee’s post-harvest fermentation. We’re calling it The Fruit of Concepción and it’s one of the most intriguing and fruit-forward coffees of the year. If you like natural processed and Ethiopian coffees then this is definitely one to try. Give it a try The Fruit of Concepción now.
Enjoy these new offerings from Guatemala!
