The high mountains of Guatemala near the town of San Pedro Necta is the location of the farm Finca La Providencia – the origin of the San Pedro Necta beans now in stock at Artistry Coffee in Duck Farm Court, Aylesbury or online at artistrycoffee.co.uk.
The farm elevation is between 1550 and 1900 meters – and an important advantage in the production of very high quality coffee.
Several springs across the area bringing abundant water resources.
The farm has passed through three generations who know the region well and are dedicated coffee producers so they take measure to help preserve the local ecology and prevent soil washing down the steep inclines.
Coffee cherries are selectively hand harvesting and eco pulped with Penagos pulpers, reducing the impact of wet processing. Post-pulping and removal of mucilage ( a slippery substance surrounding the bean) the coffee is dried on the farms patios, or in wet weather in the farms guardiolas at a slow and even temperature.
The coffee variety is Caturra from Huehuetenango region (Guatemala) and is processed with the washed method for a cleaner and brighter coffee.
TASTE NOTES are : Dark Chocolate, Black Cherry, Walnut.
This bean is recommended for best use making espresso.
