About this coffee
NOTES: JUICY FRAGRANT MIXED RED BERRIES ACIDITY, DRIED CRANBERRIES, TOASTED COCONUT, RICH CARAMEL WITH A STUNNING TROPICAL FRUIT FINISH.
This Guatemala microlot is named after the Local farmer Arturo Domingo Gomez. El Boquerón, or, The Big Mouth, is a narrow canyon cut through by the Rio Dulce. Its limestone walls are covered in beautiful hanging moss, and the canyon is home to blue morpho butterflies, hummingbirds and howler monkeys. Arturo Domingo Gomez was born and raised on Hacienda Joya Grande, where his father worked the farm. When his father passed away, Don Domingo inherited a portion of the land and, with a lot of effort, planted coffee across the entirety of it. Today, coffee is his main economic activity, and it enables him to support his wife and eight children
This particular coffee when cupping produced a wonderful profile of red berries, dried fruits, rich caramels and a tropical citrus finish.
This is a full-bodied dark roast, but not my favourite
This one’s a winner. Toasted coconut and Caramel can be tasted and the tropical fruit finish is prominent. This one is fantastic black and with milk. Might be my new regular as a crowd pleaser for those drinking black or white coffee.
GUATEMALA – DON DOMINGO – HUEHUETENANGO – NATURAL PROCESS
There was some berri flavour and acidity but the after taste was left lacking and empty.
Better for long black.
This is for lovers of black coffees, and does a beautiful dance of 80% Cacao Lindt Chocolate precision instead of the distraction of being a more standard “baker’s cocoa”. Striking richness and very mouth filling, best as a short black or a strong long black. Loves to be opened a little beyond 1:2 ratios (we were 21g to 46-48g.
