Cherry, Lemon, Pineapple, Brown Sugar
We first tasted this coffee last spring when our friend, Christian Starry, founder of Truth Trading Company, brought a sample to our roastery. Sweet, full fruit flavor is what distinguished this coffee at the cupping table so much so that we knew it needed to be included in our lineup.
Truth Trading Company was formed by two specialty coffee producers in Guatemala with the goal of helping producers and buyers obtain better pricing through 100 % transparent negotiations. Their work to connect farmers directly to roasters enables us to have access to coffee that is both exceptional as well as sustainably grown. Truth Trading Company represents a variety of Guatemalan farms including Finca La Florida.
Finca La Florida's quality is strongly influenced by its strategic location in the subtropical climated surrounded by forests in the heart of the Las Minas Mountain Ridge. This is then underscored by the families attention to details in growing, harvesting and processing methods to produce exceptional coffee.
Natural notes of cherry, lemon, pineapple, and brown sugar make this a very distinct cup.
