Single Origin Espresso {Guatemalan 'Palo Blanco'}

from 16.00

We've always wanted to build a relationship with a producer with consistently great coffee in Central America, and we're very excited to be working with Finca Palo Blanco this year. Since 1990 when the farm was purchased by the Ovalle Altuve family, they've been working on transitioning the farm from chemical and conventional agriculture to organic. This is a long process that involves recreating the rainforest environment by planting trees and rebuilding the topsoil that has been washed away or otherwise destroyed by conventional agricultural practices. In general, since the new ownership, they have been working towards being socially, environmentally, and ecologically responsible. They are deeply involved in their local community and support the local school. We're proud to be able to work with them and share this delightful organic crop that they've produced this season.
