Guatemala Bella Carmona Espresso (8oz)
DIRECT TRADE COFFEE
This is a honey-processed lot from Bella Carmona - as espresso, look forward to concentrated stone fruits like plum and jam alongside a heavy brown sugar sweetness.
This bag comes in 8oz.
Owned by Luis Pedro Zelaya, Bella Carmona is a 4th generation farm that sits between volcanoes “Vulcan de Agua” and “Vulcan de Fuego”, near the city of Antigua. Coffees from Bella Carmona are processed at the nearby mill also owned by the Zelaya family, Beneficio Bella Vista. This lot underwent a dry depulping, leaving the fruit mucilage intact, and was then sun dried for 15-20 days. Our favorite things about this lot are it’s over the top sweetness and dense, syrupy mouthfeel. Look forward to a rounded, fruit forward profile with concentrated notes of stone fruit, citrus and a heavy, sugary sweetness.
