Guatemala Buena Vista Rosendo Domingo
Tastes Like: Plum Compote, Green Apple, Kiwi, and Cherry
This coffee is flat out stunning. If the Primavera Family lot ticks all the boxes of the classic Guatemala profile, then this coffee is off the charts with its complex acidity and sweetness. We cupped this coffee twice and it was the hands down favorite both times.
Rosendo Domingo is a second-generation coffee producer from Petatan, Huehuetenango. Before the harvest he made sure that his pickers and other employees were motivated to pick only the ripest cherries. All cherries were depulped the same day as picked. The coffee was then fermented in water between 36 to 40 hours and washed with clean water. During the first hours of the drying process the coffee was left in thick layers to lower the humidity and then was rested in 5mm thick layers in the sun for five days to reach 12% humidity for exporting. Lastly the coffee parchment was sorted by hand to eliminate defects and impurities.
“My parents started with coffee production about 30 years ago. Before this our family had a very low income but after we started to receive harvests, coffee was able to give us a better life”, Rosendo explains.
