This coffee is pleasantly creamy with a distinct lightly fruited chocolate undertone. A hint of sweet toastiness lingers on the tongue after your last sip. We sampled this coffee and weren't planning on buying another Guatemalan, but we were trying out a new importer. One taste and we knew we had to have it. Not only is it delicious as a drip coffee, but I think it is one of the most versatile coffees in the shop. It can be brewed in a French Press, as cold brew or even espresso and still stand out. Enjoy!
Guatemala Vista Al Bosque Coffee Production
Mr. Wilmar Castillo, still young and unmarried, traveled with his father and three older brothers, from village to village within Hoja Blanca working on other peoples' coffee farms, learning as much as he could along the way. His dream was to have his own farm and he worked very hard to achieve it. Coffee has always been part of his life and he always saw his dad work with love and passion within coffee. Seeing that motivated him to work hard to save and slowly purchase Vista al Bosque (the farm overlooking the forest) which has owned for over 18 years. Currently he oversees the farm with his 16 year old son and his wife.
Mr. Wilmar thanks God for having his estate and that he could achieve his dreams. He looks forward to seeing what opportunities his children will have because of what the farm has provided.
