A very balanced and traditional Guatemalan bean from one our favorite partnerships in La Finca Esperanza. This decaf hosts a standard flavor profile we’re used to seeing in Swiss Water® Process coffees: very prominent nuttiness amongst chocolate notes on top of a subtle touch of bitter acidity. For a decaf been, this is everything you’d expect and hope for in your cup.
La Esperanza/ Villaure Coffee Production
In his mid-fifties, Florencio might be the hardest-working member of the diligent and much-revered Villatoro family. His lauded brothers include Aurelio Villatoro of COE-winning Finca Villaure, Pedro Villatoro of the always sparkly Guayabales lots, Juan Villatoro of El Milagro, and the eldest brother, Julian of the Los Olivos lots.
He started young, with a coffee nursery and a small lot given by his father. He's been working earnestly since he was 13. At the age of 25, he was in a tragic car accident that damaged his leg, but he's continued working with support from his family: His wife Lesvia Marilú López and his 4 children, Maikel, Riner, Yelsin y Danita, and now his 5 grandchildren. Florencio has a great sense of humor, and like the rest of his family is kind and generous; a great host. He loves to watch soccer with the community and spends a lot of time with his family.
