Strikes great balance between caramelized sugar and bittersweet cacao. Cherry and red raisin accents, Full City coming off like German chocolate cake with raspberry fill. City+ to Full City+. Great for espresso.
Cuilco is a micro-region in the Huehuetenango highlands, part of La Libertad municipality. This lot is a blend of a two Cuilco farms, one is actually from the owner/operator of the farm Regalito, Aurelio Villatoro, a beautiful coffee we buy annually consistently ranking with our best scoring Huehuetenango coffees. The other is from a neighboring farm of the Lopez family, and an offer sample that clearly needed saving from much larger, regional blends. We cupped many great samples from the area, and were able to bulk together this 10 bag micro lot offer. These two farms are mainly planted with a mix of Caturra and Bourbon varietals, and the altitude varies between them as low as 1,500 meters on up to 1,750.
