Spring Bloom! Already during the grinding process, the scent of orange blossoms rises to your nose. In the cup, the sweetness of melon and white chocolate is dominant. With a light floral finish.
A new Filter Blend brings the best of Guatemala and Mexico in the cups:
The Caturra variety from Mexico grows on the Finca La Teja at an incredible 2150m above sea level. The farm, owned by Millar Cruz, is only about 7 hectares in size (or rather small). The Caturra coffee plants are carefully selected; since this variety does not grow very large, it is ideal for the small farm.
In addition, the quality of these beans benefits immensely from the enormous altitude. It allows the coffee cherries to ripen especially slowly at low temperatures, developing more complex flavor aromas.
Millar Cruz has created a small but optimally interlocking ecosystem on his farm. His small coffee plantation has left the surrounding flora and fauna untouched. The farm draws its water from an adjacent spring. He has also built his own beehives. The bees reliably pollinate the coffee flowers and improve the formation of as many coffee cherries as possible.
The second part is also a Caturra Lot, but from Guatemala. Fancily named, “Peña Blanca,” the lot is already a single estate blend of Bourbon and Caturra beans that was washed after harvest and develops a clear, crisp flavor profile with sweet notes of orange blossom and white chocolate.
