The Story

Nearing the border with Mexico, the region of Huehuetenango offers some of our favourite Guatemalan coffees. The higher altitude brings cooler evening climates which affects a slower maturation of coffee cherries. This weather also extends the required drying time for processed coffee allowing complex flavours to develop as well as adding to the green coffee's longevity. Finca La Esperanza is a perfect example of this with an approachable complexity perfect for those autumn morning brews.

Producer Aurelio Villatoro now oversees the farm his father founded in 1953. Their vibrant washed coffees are picked and processed at a deep red ripeness with an attention to detail that is evident with the crisp and clean tasting notes of Pear, Vanilla and Melon.

Our ambition is to continue sourcing, roasting and crafting the finest coffees from the heart of East London.
