The Lake (aka Guatemala Pasajquim)
Beautiful apple and cherry flavors with soft citrus acidity are surrounded by caramel sweetness in this balanced and welcoming coffee.
end short description
Don Juan Perez Taylor and Doña Maria Perez own multiple coffee growing parcels in the town of Pasajquim. Pasajquim is located on an almost impassable dirt road on the side of the San Pedro Volcano facing away from Lake Atitlán. The Perez family buy, collect and process the coffee of their many smallholder coffee farming neighbors. While they have a small washing and processing station in their house, their coffees are sent to Beneficio La Esperanza in the form of wet parchment to be dried and prepared for export. The combination of wild forest-like growing conditions, with the highly experienced team at Beneficio La Esperanza, bring us a unique and excellent quality coffee from a very caring community.
