is located in the San Cristobal el Bajo aldea centrally located in the municipality of Antigua.
Volcan de Agua, Volcan de Acatenango, and Volcan de Fuego (which is still active) can all be seen from the farm.
Old bourbon cultivars are grown under partial shade from grevillea and avocado trees. The rich volcanic soil, warm days and cool nights and high winds give Antigua a unique microclimate that has been highly sought after for many years.
The fully washed coffees are fermented in water for 24 to 36 hours, pending weather conditions. After fermentation, the coffee is dried for 6 to 9 days on concrete patios. Each day-lot is cupped by the Coto Quality Control team and separated by cup profile.
Antigua Guatemala has a long history and was the first region to grow coffee as an ornamental plant in Jesuit convents before becoming a livelihood. The beautiful farm of Jauja is one of the oldest coffee farms in Guatemala.
Jauja is a family jewel that has been kept through generations. Panorama’s production team led by Stuardo Coto is now working together with the land owner to produce and revive the finca for many generations to come, while yielding an excellent cup result.
The Guatemala Antigua Jauja Rosario features notes of chocolate and caramel (expected from Guatemala) but also hints on green apple. That's new for me. I'm new to roasting and I was so excited to be able to taste all of the tasting notes after my first batch.
Hey Jeff, glad our palates are calibrated! That green apple note adds a really nice crisp finish to this complex coffee. Happy to know you are enjoying roasting.
I roasted this bean as a light-medium which allowed the green apple finish to shine through while also highlighting the caramel and dark chocolate notes. Very flavorful with a clean finish, and full flavor stays for weeks off roast.
Awesome! Thanks for leaving your feedback. We have been loving this coffee right there at that light-medium roast range.
I have heard of notes of green apple before but never could really identify it. I could with this bean and this roast. Very crisp and delicious Guatemala coffee.
