Description

In this espresso roast of Cuevitas, look forward to unparalled levels of sweetness that reminds us of earl grey and hard candy complimented by a juicy, ripe blueberry acidity. This coffee comes in 8oz. 

SOURCING STORY

"Cuevitas” is one of the highest elevation farms the Vides family owns (up to 1950 m.a.s.l.) Here they grow San Ramon and Caturra varieties. This lot is a fully washed processed lot that underwent a 48-hour anaerobic fermentation before drying on raised beds for 12 days. Vides 58 is a family company, owning and operating several farms in the La Libertad region of Huehuetenango, Guatemala. Their story begins over 6 decades ago with Jorge Vides, who was a highly esteemed doctor who travelled all around the country treating his patients. In 1958, he founded the first Vides family farm “Finca La Bolsa”, which continues to produce fantastic coffee to this day. Now 3 generations into coffee production, the company is managed by Jorge’s grandson Renardo and daughter María, who continue the family legacy of exporting fantastic, sustainably produced coffees. The Vides family has become world renowned for not only the delicious coffee they produce but the positive impact they have on the local community in Huehuetenango. They are heavily involved in environmental conservation, development of schools in the local area and improving the living conditions of their workers.

How do they do it

This is the first espresso I have had that I can taste the notes mentioned. You can smell blueberry on grind and taste it in the cup along with the Earl Grey.

Amazing small lot

As usual, the 49th Small lot espresso delivers. The aroma and fruitiness is on another level.
