Story

Here's your chance to taste two coffees side by side, both grown in Guatemala's Huehuetenango region. The first is a coffee from the López brothers, José and Carlos, which comes from the microlot on their farm Finca El Mirador named Los Altares. The second is produced by Artemio Morales at his farm, Finca La Bendicion. 

Both coffees are comprised of Caturra and Bourbon varieties, with just a little Catuaí also featuring in Los Altares. They have both been dry fermented for a long period of time before being fully washed and then soaked for an additional 24 hours before being put out to dry. The similarity of the processing type, geographical region, harvesting period and coffee varieties means that tasting a difference between the two will be an insight into the impact of microclimate and terroir. 

We're excited that both coffees possess a lot of intrinsic sweetness and have a very playful character. The Los Altares can taste all the way from winey and incredibly fruity to reminding us of boiled sweets and amaretto. Artemio Morales' lot tastes more layered and subtle, with florals and light caramels being the main flavour notes, with a candied citrus edge showing through in the acidity. 

We hope you enjoy these two coffees from one of the most beautiful places on the planet.
