Specialty cascara - died skin of coffee cherries from Guatemala. A profile characterized by superb sweetness and acidity of tropical fruits. An intense, complex and mouth-watering brew!
Country: Guatemala
Region: Acatenango

Cultivar: geisha

Altitude: 1300 - 1550 m.a.s.l.
Harvest: February 2022


Here we have a pure geisha fruit from natural processing. We asked Julio this year to separate this cascara, which was then hand-searched to get rid of any impurities. Mother dear. Holy Lord. The whole symphony orchestra came out of it.


El Zapote is one of those farms that evoked hard to describe, extremely positive emotions. Beautifully situated at the base of two volcanoes, with wilderness at the bottom, add a rushing, winding river and a jungle vibe. Julio is a great guy, with a vast knowledge of coffee and a sleeve full of anecdotes. Open-minded, willing to experiment and engaging in unusual practices - we'll show the results of his work more than once!


While serving this cascara, we get asked if we added sugar. And that's probably enough for a hundred words!


The coffee is packed in a brown jar made of PET, 100% recyclable or reusable. In case you're thinking "oh no, plastic!", bear in mind that standard coffee packaging is also made of plastic (and a few other materials, making it often harder to recycle). We also thought about glass, but it's heavier, more expensive, breakable and, wait for it, has the same or greater (sic!) environmental impact! A plastic jar turns out to be pretty eco-friendly, just remember to put it in the right container, or find a creative way to reuse it at home.
