ESPRESSO
Guatemala El Tambor, Washed

SINGLE ORIGIN – ESPRESSO

OUT OF STOCK
‘El Tambor, or ‘The Drum’ was named after a drum-like noise that was thought to come from an underground waterfall underneath the farm. The sound has no been heard since the 1940’s, and coffee has been grown in this area ever since. The Calderon family has operated the farm since 2001, and seek to highlight the sweetness that develops from the slow maturation of the cherries in the cold overnight temperatures on the farm.

Citrus notes of lime and orange are accompanied by a caramel-like sweetness in this washed caturra varietal from Palencia, Guatemala.
