New Release | La Esperanza Special, Guatemala

La Esperanza Special, Guatemala


As we move into the last few weeks of Summer, we also approach the end of Guatemala season here at Seven Seeds. With just two releases from our 2022 sourcing left to go, this week, we present the last offering from Familia Villatoro; La Esperanza Special, Guatemala.

Seven Seeds has worked with the Villatoro family for the last nine years. Over that time, we have had the absolute pleasure of purchasing from three Villatoro farms, learning about and enjoying each farm's unique profiles. Of these farms, we've found the coffee from Finca la Esperanza always to have incredible clarity and balance.

La Esperanza Special, Guatemala, Coffee Profile

The La Esperanza Special showcases the Bourbon and Caturra varietals, grown between 1800 - 1950 masl. You'll find a gorgeous acidity in your cup that is vibrant but not overwhelming. With mellow stone fruit tones upfront and an aperitif-like finish, this is a filter coffee fitting for the changing season.

While all good things must come to an end, when it comes to coffee sourced from Familia Villatoro, the end is only temporary. We look forward with excitement as Seven Seeds co-owner Mark Dundon will be visiting Huehuetenango in March to secure another container load of outstanding Guatemalan coffee while celebrating ten years of friendship and direct purchasing. Here's to another ten years!
