Tasting Notes: 


This Guatemalan coffee is pleasantly rich and bold, but has subtle fruit notes to it.  Earlier this year, we were sampling coffees and happened to have 12 Guatemalans hit the cupping table.  We were already offering 2 or 3 at the time and really didn't need a new one, but it was time to plan ahead and I wanted to try a new importer.  I'm glad I did because this cup just kept getting voted as a favorite. 

The dark chocolate and molasses finish pairs perfectly with its big body and juicy plum or fresh raspberry vibrancy.  This is not like the Guatemalan gold that makes a creamy chocolate cup.  This one is more dark chocolate and fruited almost syrupy cup of coffee.  Perfect for espresso or a french press. 


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.

Great coffee.

I’ve been living with my Mother-in-Law for 2 months. I actually love her. (She probably tolerates me). Her idea of good coffee is a 5 lb bag from Costco. I been called a coffee snob but I like the word coffee appreciation expert. This Guatemalan Vista Al Bosque makes such a wonderful, smooth, delicious, and sumptuous cup that I find myself forgetting breakfast so I can enjoy the coffee without the food competing on my taste buds. I particularly enjoy this made with a French Press.

Need to understand philosophy

Once U understand the philosophy of offering the coffee in the roast that best illuminates it's positives, as opposed to offering a choice of roasts, U can use it's site as a way to truly compare coffees from around the world in order to find the one that U like best. Wonderful idea.

Every cup seems to a new flavor- an enjoyable flavor. I sure like the Ethiopia coffees always good and this one of my favorites.
