Single Origin Release: Guatemala Santa Isabel

10/4/18
Santa Isabel is situated on 300 acres of high, fertile land in the cool, rainy area of Cobán. The farm is owned and operated by the Valdéz family. Luis is the general manager and his son, Luis Jr. ("Wicho"), whose background is in agronomy, acts as the agricultural manager. When the farm was originally planted with Bourbon, Caturra and Catuai varietals, the Cobán region wasn’t known for high-quality coffee.

Single Origin Release: Nicaragua Jesus Mountain

This lot is from Cerro de Jesus or Jesus Mountain Farm which lies on the second highest peak in Nicaragua. The farm is about 700 hectares in size, 400 of which is set aside for forest reserve. In the last year, Jesus Mountain Farm began working with Cafetos de Segovia, a micro-mill and export company in the region run by the Albir sisters (Martha and Ana) who, aside from tending to their own farm, have invested in milling coffees for other area producers.
