Guatemala, Esperanza Pacamara

TASTES LIKE Prosecco, Lemonade, Apple Jam
PROFILE Sparkling & Vibrant


Deep in the western reaches of Huehuetenango, running near to the boarder of neighbouring Mexico, lies a valley that cradles the village of Hoja Blanca. It is here that Don Aurelio Villatoro of Finca La Esperanza fame, tends to his farms, producing high quality washed coffees. Seven Seeds has been direct purchasing coffees from Aurelio for 6 years and every harvest we cup through the myriad lots he produces, to come up with the final selection for our Guatemala seasonal offerings. One such lot that stood out on the tasting table is La Esperanza Pacamara. Memories of Rosma Lot 14 drift back at the mention of this coffee - Maragogype/Pacamara blend - with the exception here being that this lot is made up purely of the Pacamara cultivar.

With Aurelio’s harvest season running from December to March, a high standard of ripe cherry selection is employed with unripe, green cherries left behind along with any that don’t present a full ripe colour as well as damaged fruit too. After which pulping commences followed by fermentation - between 24 and 36 hours - before it is washed and sent to dry on the concrete rooftops that double as drying patios.

This particular lot is a stunning top shelf example of the meticulous care and work that goes into production at Aurelios farms.
