Guatemala - La Nueva Montagna
This is one of the cleanest natural processed coffees that we have tasted all year! It’s a fruity natural from Antonio Gonzales’ farm in El Palmar in Fraijanes, Guatemala. After picking, the coffee is soaked to remove any dust and immature beans that might mess with the fermentation. It is then dried on raised beds in the shade for 18-22 days.
In the future Antonio is interested in developing his agronomic practices. Antonio also wants to provide support to other producers in the region who can’t afford buying supplies. He wants to make the supplies accessible and very cheap for producers.
Antonio hopes to be able to support his children to be able to study at a University and continue to improve the quality of his already incredible coffees. “Together we take care of the environment avoiding any contaminations. To produce honeys and naturals is a very important way for us to improve our income and the wages for those who work for us. Production of these special coffees also allows us to know our produce better.”
