At Cooperative El Porvenir all lots of green coffee are individually cupped thoroughly to ensure the coffees meet the distinct wine series tasting profile, rejecting anything that doesn’t pass the highest quality standards. The Ayarza Wine Series is a collection of deeply fruited, markedly winey coffees. This coffee displays intense fruits, slightly fermented character reminiscent of wine, candied sweetness, and depth of body.
Cooperativa El Porvenir represents the hard work and dedication of nine producing families and twenty-eight farms in the area surrounding Laguna de Ayarza, in South East Guatemala. Farming families include the Lorenzo, Zapata, Aguirre, Najera, Mendez, Sandoval, Ortega, Martinez, and Barrera families. Average growing altitude in this region is 1800 meters above sea level, and coffees are processed at 1500 meters above sea level. Farmers grow red and yellow Catuaí, Pache, and red and yellow Bourbon. Coffees are dried 5-6 days on the patios.
An all-around fantastic coffee for pour over, batch brew, or espresso. Highly recommended.
