Juan Gabriel - Guatemala


| /

Pack Size

Our new bean from Guatemala is here! Its super easy drinking coffee and perfect for the mornings to wake up your taste buds. Gentle blackberry acidity, creamy body and well balanced golden raisin and salted caramel flavours, followed by a very smooth, silky finish.

In espresso, the blackberry acidity is more present, so this bean only just falls into the 'comfort' category. Great for those who like bit of a kick but nothing too scary.

We hope you enjoy it as much as we do, it's sheer class.

Origin:  Chabila, San Marcos, Jacaltenango, Huehuetenango, Guatemala

Varietals: Caturra

Processing: Washed

Roast degree: Medium (

Juan is a second generation coffee producer, and he learned all about coffee
production from his father. As he acquired small parcels of land, he decided to
plant them with quality coffee in order to continue this career; this parcel is named
for the Popti Mayan word for “oak trees.” He works together with his wife and kids
to tend the farm and process the coffees, and they are always working to improve
their processes in order to obtain the best possible coffee quality.


Cultivating coffee has been my career for a long time now, and coffee has helped
us develop our local economy the most. Today it is more difficult to grow coffee, so
we do what we can to adapt to the challenges of climate change and other crises.


Juan and his family work together to ensure proper processing for their coffee! The depulp their coffee the same day it is picked, and it dry ferments for 24 hours. Once all the mucilage is broken down, they wash the coffee and then place it in fresh, clean water for a second soaking, which lasts 12 hours. From there, the coffee is placed on the patio and dried for 4-5 days. They leave the coffee outside in the sunniest parts of the day for 8 hours during the drying period, from 8 AM to 4 PM, and they turn the coffee every hour to ensure thorough and even drying. Once the coffee is dried, they store it in a cool and dry room until it can be delivered to our warehouse.
