We can't oversell this coffee. It is a beautiful combination of terroir, variety character and commitment to quality along the entire line of production. We don't source many natural coffees, but this one is well worth it; the syrupy citrus character of the pacamara is transformed into deeply sweet tropical fruit and strawberry preserves. Treat yourself to this super clean, fruit-bomb-of-a-natural coffee.
Huehuetenango is a traditional coffee region that produces high quality beans. On that place, in La Libertad is located Las Macadamias an experimental farm of El Injerto. Located south of El Injerto, with an area of 12.4 has. at an elevation of 5000 to 5800 feet.
Las Macadamias used to be part of El Injerto farm founded in the 189s. For different reasons the farm was separated from El Injerto as well as others, but it has been worked with the same hard work, passion and quality control.
In this farm we try different agricultural practices, as pruning types, fertilizers, weed control and even varieties; this help us evaluate different methods and if they work we use them in a longer term.
Most of the plantation is a natural blend of Catuai and Bourbon, only a small area at the top is 100% Bourbon.
