Description

Los Ancestros coffee grows along the mountains that surround the Mayan archaeological site, Zaculeu, in Western Guatemala, hence the name. Our importer, Caravela, works with around 13 coffee growers that contribute to this community blend.  The blend varies from harvest to harvest but typically consists of coffees with strong red fruit, lime, honey, and vanilla notes. The variety of microclimates, combined with the diversity of altitudes within the region, and the passion of these coffee growers make it possible to produce amazing coffees.  Coffee growers in this region are innovators, they love to try new processes, new varieties, and new ways of doing things to achieve better prices. Lately, they have been innovating by experimenting with honey-processed coffees and have achieved some incredible results.

This particular lot that we purchased isn’t just a blend of varietals, it’s also a blend of processes, containing coffees produced both by washed and honey processing which adds to the coffees sweetness and body. When we brew this coffee we’re tasting and perceiving Redcurrant, Cranberry, a creamy body, light florals, and a pleasant sweet-bitterness at the end which reminds us of slightly toasted malt.
