Coffee Description

Finca Villaure is a fantastic example of a premium washed coffee from Guatemala. It's rich, sweet and smooth, full of milk chocolate and almond flavours and a hint of pear. It's a great all rounder coffee, which sits amazingly well served as espresso or in a cafetiere. A coffee for everyone.

This is the filter roast, which is roasted considerably lighter. This version is much more delicate and brighter cup. It offers a more refreshing profile, with a layer of almond, supported by a red apple acidity.

Coffee Origin

Villaure comes from an area called Huehuetenango, which is arguably the best coffee growing region in the country. With altitudes over 2,000 meters, Huehue is the highest and driest region of Guatemala. It is only one of three regions without volcanic soil. Historically, it has been one of the more remote areas of the country and accessibility has been challenging. In the past, many farmers have used oxen or have carried their coffees on their back. Huehuetenango enjoys easy access to water sources, enabling many producers to process their own coffee.
