Notes From The Producer

In the Sacatepéquez department outside of Antigua, Guatemala, Lucia Zelaya and her husband, Don Rony Asensio, cultivate the Caturra and Bourbon trees at their farm, La Soledad.  Shaded by ubiquitous Grevillea trees at 1750 meters above sea level, these 21 hectares of coffee trees are harvested of their fruit throughout the Spring. The coffee is then processed at the Zelaya family's own Beneficio Bella Vista in the traditional washed manner. The skin of the coffee cherry is pulped off before the seed is subjected to a fermentation process, used to deteriorate the residual clinging sugars. This coffee tastes clean and sweet, with flavors of orange zest, honey, and pear.

About The Producer

Ritual Coffee Roasters
San Francisco
Ritual has been a pioneer in this delicious shift in coffee consciousness since we opened our doors on Valencia Street in 2005 and started what some call a coffee revolution in San Francisco. Our goal then--and our goal now--was to craft the very best cup of coffee available anywhere. Period. We've learned a lot over the years, but the care and attention we lavish on our process is unchanged, including tasting every coffee several times before it goes out to our coffee bars and into your cup.Read more
