EARLY BIRD ~ MICROLOT ~ SINGLE ORIGIN COFFEE FROM GUATEMALA
GUATEMALA - SINGLE ORIGIN
Finca Los Tarrales was visited in 2018, an origin trip to discover and educate ourselves further on coffee farming, growing and processing.
Los Tarrales is located within a region of diverse tropical wildlife, with over 350 species of exotic birds residing in a natural reserve, integrating forests and plantations in their large 1,300 hectare reserve on Guatemala's Atitlán Volcano. Their award winning coffee is grown and processed on a farm that's been operating since the late 1800's. Their ethos for conservation and sustainability is impressive and one we like to support here at Painted Blue.
The family are committed to cultivating high quality coffee in a sustainable manner. Coffee production is an essential way of life, and producers dedicate their lives to the plantations they nurture
The varieties we have chosen to showcase are ones we personally saw growing at origin in the plantation. we sourced these beans directly from the farm.
Our Early Bird, a homage to the Azure-rumped Tanager and the other 349 bird species recorded at Los Tarrales, is the Caturra variety. It is grown at altitudes of 1200 MASL. It is a clean balanced cup with citrus and honey notes. So delicious!
