Single Origin Coffees : Guatemala Cobán Santa Isabel
Product # 364

Price: $ 17.99 /lb.


The climate in Cobán is wetter than other areas of Guatemala like Antigua. That causes some difficulties with patio drying, but the farm also uses “Guardiola” mechanical dryers, and has built out a sizable greenhouse to allow for patio drying even with unexpected rain. They also think sustainably, and make use of all that precipitation by turning their storeroom rooves into rainwater collectors.

Out of all the farms we visited in March, Santa Isabel had the healthiest looking trees. Central America is still fighting outbreaks of coffee rust disease (aka Roya), and it takes constant vigilance from farmers to prevent it from decimating their crop.

You can taste their efforts in the cup—the coffee is juicy and round, with a tart, but well-balanced acidity.
