Dos Rios (Two Rivers) is the name of the lot, within the larger farm area known as Finca La Bolsa. We came across coffees from La Bolsa four years ago, sort of by accident.We had cupped some samples sent to us at the end of the season and although they were old samples by then, the coffees still tasted awesome!
It is a long journey from the farm to the dock where the container leaves to carry the coffees to Australia. We are thrilled that the coffees make it all the way to Australia in fantastic condition. When we visit Guatemala each year, we aim to cup together with Renardo in his lab for lot selection and for calibration, with the view to continue working together in the coming years. In general we visit Guatemala twice each season, once early in the year for selection, and then again to cup our lots for quality control, prior to the coffees being. We are thrilled with the quality of coffee that has come in this year from Guatemala. Here’s to sharing a delicious brew!
