  • Fragrance of dark chocolate and cherry, aroma of guava and raspberry, notes of cherry and strawberry with a lemon zest aftertaste and tart grapefruit-like acidity with a syrupy body.
  • The fruit notes show best at lighter roasts with a tart acidity, however the syrupy body and sweetness will be more pronounced at a medium roast. We recommend keeping this coffee somewhere in between a light-medium and medium-dark roast to showcase these attributes.

"At Finca El Platanillo, Stuardo has managed to create an environment compliant with certifications and with his own personal quest to find the balance between the ecosystem and a productive coffee plantation as a wholesome unit. Close monitoring of flora and fauna has led to a rich environment where the ecosystem and the plantation planning go hand in hand. Protecting the ecosystem is a principle that has guided all the constant improvement that the farm undertakes each year. Because this principle was always a priority, by the time certification programs such as RFA (Rainforest Alliance), Starbucks’ “Café Practices”, 4C, etc. came into existence; Finca El Platanillo was already in compliance with most of the requirements to obtain these certifications. Keeping Rainforest Alliance from 2005 to this day, and pioneering RFA’s Climate Module as the first farm in the world to implement this once “extra sustainable” now RFA’s standard program.

I loved this Guatemala on espresso. I roasted this bean a bit too dark, wishing end temp was lower. The coffee was still great but you could tell it wanted to be lighter. But for espresso, wow! Burst of Cherry/Strawberry yummyness.
