In The Mix Colombia & Guatemala House Blend Coffee - 1kg
Country: Colombia / Guatemala
Tasting Notes: Dark Chocolate / Vanilla / Hazelnut
Roast: Medium Roast
Brew Type: Filter + Espresso
This is our perfect all rounder and often the everyday choice for our customers due to its' versatility. Roasted on the slightly darker side of medium it can work very well for manual espresso, bean to cup machines as well as manual brewers with a coarser grind. A real crowd pleaser that works every time it drops.
This blend brings together the complementary characteristics from Guatemala and Colombia. We drop in our favourite Colombian with coffee from the Huehuetenango region in Guatemala which brings dark chocolate to the party.
Guatemala San Antonio De Huista
This coffee is produced by an association in the town of San Antonio de Huista in the famous region of Huehuetenango in northern Guatemala. The region is characterised by very high elevation farms (average 1800m), with a temperate climate warmed by winds brought down from Mexico. The farms that produce these coffees practise organic agriculture, and cultivate traditional 'old' varieties of arabica such as Typica, Caturra and Bourbon. The coffees are selectively hand-picked during the harvest, fully washed and wet fermented for 12 hours, and then dried on patios for 8-10 days.
Colombia Valle del Cesar
This coffee comes from an association called Café Entre Sierras, which was formed in 2018, and comprises 17 farms in the Perija mountains, northern Colombia. The mountains form part of the "Cordillera de los Andes", which is the largest continuous mountain range in the world.
Between them, the association manages 385 hectares of land, producing organic coffee under native forest shade, and in doing so, protects one of the most ancient areas of forest in Latin America.
For a period of time, farms in this area were abandoned, as the population fled armed conflicts in the region. The associates therefore manage their land and projects in pursuit of a simpler, calmer life. The Café Entre Sierras association provides support to new producers wishing to join the adventure, and aims to inspire the younger generation back into farming. They have recently created a school of 'Cafe Catadorcitos', to teach younger barista and coffee tasting skills. We are pleased to say that we will be supplying these young baristas with the tools to perfect their trade.
