Guatemala Alto Campamento

Grind Level Guide

Tasting Notes


Guatemalan coffees are rich in flavor with an underlying sweetness and are often among our best selling offerings. This coffee gives you everything you want to have in a great Guatemalan coffee. Tropical Fruit and Chocolate is always a winning combination and the Guatemala Alto Campamento perfectly balances rich sweetness with gentle acidity. I think this coffee will be a favorite for many of our regulars.

Production


Aurelio Villatoro was born into coffee. As a child he dedicated himself diligently to his studies, and when he finished school he became a mechanic and returned to Finca La Esperanza, his father's farm. His hope was to continue the work of farming with his father, and in 1986 he founded his own farm called "Villaure" a combination of his first and last names. At first, his plot of coffee was very small, but with enthusiasm, and dedication, he increased productivity and slowly bought more lots. From the year 2002 to date, the family has received numerous awards nationally and internationally.
