In Guatemala, the higher elevations of the Terrazas farm defy imagination. It’s a place where rolling hills meld into sweeping, lush green mountains and warm winds blow in from the Tehuantepec plain. Nestled here in La Bolsa, is a coffee farm that the Vides family has owned since 1958.
Coffee can flourish at this high elevation because warm winds eliminate the frost that can harm the delicate plants. At such a high altitude, the coffee cherries mature slowly producing a sweet and sophisticated cup.
Terrazas-La Guitarra is another exceptional lot from Huehuetenango.
The Vides family’s continuous focus on quality and their sense of social responsibility makes us excited to work with them for another year. They maintain a full school and provide access to health care for the local community.
A complex cup and a great representation of Guatemalan Caturra & San Ramon. Terrazas - La Guitarra offers complex flavours of pinot noir and cashew with floral aromas and a silky mouthfeel.
