Coffee Profile

We cupped many lots of Guatemala this year, and we kept coming back to La Colmenita. It stood out on the cupping table for it's fruit sweetness, round body, and strawberry nose on the fresh dry grounds.

Driving the narrow mountain road up an impossibly steep slope to Finca La Colmenita, or "The Beehive", the views are striking. The valley stretches out below, and we have visited many farms on this mountainside, guided by our friends from Onyx Coffee that own Finca Vista Hermosa, which sits just below La Colmenita.

When Francisco Cardona Martin bought La Colmenita in 2002, he had a vision: To produce the best quality coffees possible, by planting varieties known for excellence in separation, and investing heavily in equipment and farming techniques. Francisco is incredibly resourceful, drying his coffee on a patio he built on top of his house and investing nearly all profits from coffee sold back into the farm. He often attends cuppings with the Onyx QC team to develop his skills and to learn where he can improve.
