Vanilla Bean, Frangipane, Lemon Butter, Chocolate Cake.
We have two Guatemalan lots on offer right now that we believe reveal the amazing complexity, excitement and delicious tastes available from a single region. The other lot called El Rincon is an anaerobic naturally processed variety and can be purchased together as a special combo.
This lot is from the Hidalgo family, and like the Vides family with the El Rincon, have been working this farm since the 1950s in the El Paraiso Village. The son, Don Silvano Hidalgo, inherited the farm from his father and aptly named it after the Camelia flowers that his father grew. This flower is considered the symbol of utmost beauty and eternal love.
The sweetness here is a delicious balance of acidity and sugars. Theres a heavy cream like texture that lingers on the palate. The chocolate notes come through in the finish like cake. The almond aspect completes the dessert-like appeal.
Enjoy our espresso roast version of this delicious coffee.
