SEASONAL DECAF: Finca El Hato & Small Producers of Jalapa

Rated 5.00 out of 5 based on 1 customer rating
(1 customer review)



Balanced and Sweet with notes of chocolate and praline. Mild, apple-like acidity.

This coffee shows us just how good decaf can taste; a sweet and well balanced blend from a group of Guatemalan coffee producers in Jalapa who have formed their own association named simply ‘Small Producers of Jalapa‘.

A really versatile coffee – tastes great as a filter and is equally at home when brewed as espresso.

Age of the coffee trees: The coffee plantations are roughly 15 years old and are pruned and renewed on a regular basis in order to produce quality coffee.

Association History: The idea was born in Santa Amellia Xalapa as a way of supporting a growing community of farmers. They excelled at growing: Corn, Tomato, Apples, Peaches and Avocado – they then added coffee. Due to the richness of the soils and the high altitude at where they are found, coffee has been a great success. The idea originated when a Spanish organization visited them and encouraged an organized community to support each other and find better markets for their quality products. They became a formal association in February of 2017 with the help of Third Wave Coffee Source and will hopefully have their first wet mill next year.
