More About this Coffee:
The Monte de Oro farm is located in the Acatenango Valley on the hills of Balam Juyu, at an altitude of 1,600 metres. It is named after the excellent fertility of the soil on which it is situated. Initially devoted to polyculture and breeding, the farm gradually stepped up its coffee production and today it is the farm's sole activity. Over this period, new varieties and coffee preparation techniques have been introduced. The 22-hectare farm currently has more than five varieties of coffee that are prepared according to three different processes, producing a wide variety of sensory profiles.
The farm's manager, Mario Ricardo, is an industrial mechanical engineer by training, and he is using his expertise to develop more responsible production processes, for example by reducing use of water when wet-processing the farm's coffees. .
Cafés Lugat boasts a team of enthusiastic young coffee roasters who select exceptional coffees and create irresistible recipes just for you. Through their range of coffee beans, ground coffees and Nespresso® compatible capsules, their mission is to bring you the unique flavour and aromas from the world's best coffee-producing areas!
