A complex fruitier coffee, medium to full body with lots of depth This coffee favours more gentle brewing methods for example cafetière or filter cone. It works really well with milk due to its comparative high acidity. Espresso brewing either with a domestic machine or a stovetop mocha pot may be a little challenging but good results can be achieved with a bit of practice.

Farm

Owned by the Echeverria brothers, Santa Catalina is 95 hectors. The majority of their land is planted with coffee, the rest is a nature reserve close to the Acatenango Volcano. The altitude on the farm ranges from 1550m to 2100m. The higher slopes are largely populated with the bourbon variety and the lower is made up of Caturra, Catuai and Pache. Bourbon notoriously ripens earlier so growing it at higher altitude slows down the maturation process allowing all coffees to be harvested at the same time.
