More About this Coffee:
This high-altitude coffee, produced on the La Libertad terroir (Huehuetenango region), is a blend of two varieties of Arabica harvested only at optimum maturity: Red Bourbon and Caturra. This coffee comes from two farms El Rincon et La Bolsa held by Renardo Ovalle and his family . Renardo received several awards for his production including the Cup of Excellence Award for the quality of his coffee.
This coffee from La Libertad is cultivated at a high altitude on a limestone soil, characteristic of the Huehuetenango region , and therefore carries a unique intricacy and acidity guaranteeing excellent bean quality. The very specific nature of this limestone terroir is reflected in the coffee's spicy and chocolatey notes.
The La Libertad terroir is one of the highest in the Huehuetenango appellation, giving the coffee a much greater intricacy than a "standard" SHB quality coffee, which must be produced at an altitude of at least 1200 metres.
