This coffee will roast Monday 12/20 and supply is very limited.
In August of this year we participated in a buying group bidding in the Guatemala Cup of Excellence auction. We were very excited to be able to win this lot, and very fortunate and proud to roast and offer this award winning coffee from Finca El Amate, which won 11th place in the prestigious Guatemalan Cup of Excellence. Produced by Mr. Petronilo Martinez, and his son Petronilo Jesus, on their 12 hectare farm in Hoja Blanca, Huehuetenango. This auction lot is 100% Bourbon cherry, grown at high altitudes of 1890m. This is one of the finest Guatemalan coffees we have ever tasted and had the pleasure to roast.

About the Cup of Excellence®
Since 1999 the Cup of Excellence has been an innovative, educational and life changing program for coffee farmers. Utilizing a stringent competition and selection process the Cup of Excellence has fundamentally changed the entire high quality coffee industry and in fact has created and supported advances in farming and premiums to farmers that would have been impossible without it.
Cup of Excellence continues to push recognition to farmers of every size and gender in countries where it operates. These individual farmers then can enjoy building direct and long-term relationships with those buyers that appreciate the coffees they produce.
