Guatemala Tres Gigantes Single Origin Espresso
- Dried peach
- Key-lime pie
This coffee is from San Marcos, a department in Guatemala that stretches to the Pacific Ocean in the south and borders Mexico to the west. The area is known for its captivating landscape - the Cuchumatanes mountains in the north and a chain of volcanoes in the south. In fact, it’s these “three giants” - volcanoes San Antonio, Tacaná, and Tajumulco - that this coffee is named after. Tajumulco is actually the highest peak in Central America at 4220 meters above sea level, closely followed by Tacaná at 4092 masl: giants indeed!
Typically, up to 20 farmers contribute their coffee to Tres Gigantes lots, however, this particular lot was grown and processed by only three producers. Coincidentally all three producers - Agapito, Edgar, and Eduardo - all share the surname Orozco, although they are not blood-related. Their coffees were all processed (fully washed) at the farms where they were grown, and then brought together to form this community lot.
