Our latest offering from our friends at Finca Concepción Buena Vista is a delicious naturally-processed Red Bourbon varietal grown at 5900 feet above sea level. After harvest, each bean is slowly dried in the cherry for around three weeks, with the moisture being monitored meticulously along the way.
The resulting cup is one of our favorites of the year, and is equal parts approachable and totally unique. We taste Caramel Apple, Black Raspberry, and Tootsie Roll!
About the farm:
Finca Concepcion Buena Vista has been in the Solano family for more than 150 years. Fourth-generation coffee farmers David and his brother Eddy have become more and more involved in the family business over the last several years, learning everything they could from their father Don Bernardo, and working to add capacity and implement new processing methods to create even more interesting and delicious coffees.
San Martin Jilotepeque is a small community in the Guatemalan state of Chimaltenango, about 2 hours from the old colonial city of Antigua. Although it may be a lesser-known growing area, the coffees from Concepción Buena Vista benefit from a unique microclimate and topography that produces amazing sweetness and floral notes, with a good dose of the chocolatiness that Guatemalan coffees are known for.
