FINCA LA JOYA GUATEMALA
I am absolutely chuffed to offer two new coffees from Antigua in Guatemala sourced through Gelpo.
Finca La joya Washed and Natural. These unique micro lot coffees are the result of new proceessing experiments on the farm. These coffees were an absolute joy to roast. The natural charged at a lower temp with a "softer" profile. There is less acidity, more body and earthier flavours. The washed has a beautiful spine of pleasant acidity. Full notes below;
A stunning natural coffee which is floral and sweetly spicy. Almond, vanilla and complex florals in aroma and cup. Juicy, balanced acidity; buoyant, lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Richly sweet finish carried by a mix of floral notes in the short, condensing to lavender and lychee in the long finish.
IN THE CUP : Citric nippy acidity, honeyed sweetness with pear and vanilla notes, dense body and beautiful chocolate aroma. A great all round coffee outstanding in filter or R16 extraction glass.
