This coffee has a crisp acidity with big chocolate and toffee notes, a very good mouthfeel and lingering finish. Great all rounder as a brighter Espresso and wonderful long brewed coffee.
Julian Flores founded Finca El Bosque in 1932. The fourteen-hectare extension of land was planted out with Bourbon varietal coffee, and the farm grew over the next few years with the purchase of additional land. Julian Flores died in 1947 and his only son, José Eladio Flores, continued in his father’s footsteps. In 1970, José bought another 23 hectares and planted the same Bourbon coffee varietal. Since his death in 1996, a third generation has taken charge under the direction of José’s widow, Martha Stalla, and their sons Julio, José, Francisco and Mario.
The first two generations cultivated and sold coffee in cherry form only. Now the third generation has taken care to innovate, and they have built a plant for processing the cherries in line with strict environmental guidelines. They have also diversified into growing other plants for local consumption such as avocados, roses and lemons, as well as growing a new grass innovation.
This amazing coffee is grown ~1400 to 1645 m.a.s.l. near to Lake Amatitlan. It is fully washed and sundried on patios and is 100% Bourbon.
