Copacabana is from a group of smallholder producers outside of La Paz, in a very famous coffee growing region called Caranavi. Caranavi coffees are renowned for their rich sweetness. Copacabana offers just that. There is a beautiful, delicate sweetness to this coffee that thickens the body nicely. Notes of apricot and peach are also apparent, which balance the acidity beautifully.
Varietal: Caturra, Red & Yellow Catuai
We visited Finca Las Rosas in February 2013. Run by Rolando Villatoro and named for his mothers' love of roses, we were stunned by the beauty, health, and cleanliness of Rolando's estate.
Located in the department of Huehuetenango, in northern Guatemala, Finca Las Rosas is in the region of San Pedro Necta, which is nestled in the slopes of the Chuchumantes mountains.
We're very proud to offer to you this Borbon variety lot, called "El Mangal". We chose this coffee because of it's incredibly clean and sweet flavour profile. Expect notes of dark chocolate, almonds and a hint of tropical fruit, with a lingering honey sweetness. Enjoy!
