Guatemala Las Moritas
Roast Profile 1 - Light

Single varietal micro-lot from Guatemala

Beautiful coffee with clean, juicy finish

Don Higino, along with his wife Aura, bought their first small plot of land in 1988, naming it San Jose Las Moritas. With coffee seeds given to him by his father, they planted less than one hectare of Bourbon varietal trees. Every year they purchased more land. Today, Las Moritas is able to produce 4,860,000 lbs of coffee cherry, from several different parcels of land, with over a dozen different coffee cultivars planted. The farm remains a biodiverse ecosystem using the natural forest as well as ingas, pine, and avocado trees for shade. Corn, beans, tomatoes, and peaches are also grown for supplemental income and diversity.

This is a single varietal micro-lot compromised entirely of the H1 hybrid, planted out of the producers' desires to experiment with different varieties in their region of Guatemala. This variety was created as an effort by breeders to increase genetic diversity of coffee plants in Central America. It's prized for its resistance to leaf rust, a fungal disease that can devastate crops, as well as its performance on the cupping table. 

We enjoyed this sweet, lightly citrus and fruity coffee as soon as we tasted it. Dial in to pleasant notes of cola and dried orange with 1:16 brew ratio, filtered water at 208-210℉, a medium grind, and a 3-3.5 minute brew cycle.

Orange

Warm, lively orange coffees feature sweet citrus and stone fruit flavors of peaches, tangerines, and apricots.
