Additional Notes: We have had some super coffee from Guatemala this year and this lot has to be one of the finest. It makes a beautiful espresso that brings a balanced, fruity acidity to the cup. The washed process allows the terroir of the region to shine. There is something in this coffee for everyone to enjoy and it is excellent value too!
Mr. Itiel Vásquez, the owner of La Inteligencia, talks of how he was born in coffee plantations, starting working young on a little area of the farm, where he met his wife today.
Shortly after his father-in-law died, he found himself left in charge of 34 hectares of coffee. Since then, he and his 4 sisters-in-law have dedicated time and effort to remain being the best coffee of the region and of Guatemala. They hope for the legacy to continue, with plots on the farm already set aside for their three children.
