Product Overview

Guatemala Cubulco Coffee

Cup Profile:

Dark chocolate, citrus fruit, herb-like, with a bright acidity and medium body. 

About the Coffee: 

Five farms primarily contributed to this coffee: Las Anonas, Las Naranjas,
La Esperanza, Grano de Oro and Finca las Piedras. 

Finca Las Naranjas is owned by Don Ruben Ajualip Gonzalez. He inherited
the 2.45-hectare farm from his father and over the last 12 years has
significantly elevated his coffee’s production and quality. 

Don Pascual Teletor owns Finca las Anonas. Don Pascual lived in the United
States for a time but dreamed of returning to his hometown of Cubulco and
purchasing land for producing coffee. He now farms an 8.4-hectare plot,
1.45 hectares of which are planted with coffee. 

About the Region:

Located in central Guatemala, Cubulco is situated near the Sierra
de las Minas and Sierra de Chuacus mountain ranges. Moist clay soil
and a rainy and temperate-to-cold climate help the cherries mature
slowly and develop the coffee’s signature notes of milk chocolate,
citrus and hazelnut. 

Cubulco is part of the department of Baja Verapaz, a region with
improving living conditions and a high percentage of indigenous
peoples, who are descendants of the Achi ethnic group. The area’s
coffee producers are smallholders who use traditional agricultural
practices and operate their own wet mills.
