Tasting Notes:

This Guatemalan decaf coffee has the traditional, delicious, Guatemalan flavor profile that you’d expect. A classic caramel sweetness sits comfortably on a rich, spice-driven, chocolaty sweetness. We picked up notes of cardamon along with a clear body that reflected an essence of spice. For the decaf drinker, the traditional flavor profile and smooth body of this coffee makes it the perfect daily driver.

Flor Del Cafe Coffee Production: 

Flor Del Café is a surprisingly complex and vibrant organic lot, perhaps owing to the high altitudes and ideal growing conditions of Agua Dulce, Cuilco, a remote part of western Huehuetenango we work deeply in.

In the 1940s, the first seedlings of Arabica coffee were planted in Agua Dulce. The high-ridged, verdant mountains of this extremely remote area made not only for an idyllic new home for many families, but the perfect growing conditions for coffee.

One of the first families to cultivate coffee were the Pérez family. The oldest, Osbaldo Pérez worked tirelessly with his siblings to grow coffee successfully, and over the decades the family founded several estates throughout the valley. One of the farms, called "Flor Del Café", or The Coffee Flower, would become one of the most prestigious coffee estates in the region, well regarded by coffee people around the world.

Over the years, Don Osbaldo's sons innovated new agricultural techniques and implemented natural applications throughout the farm for disease and pest control. In the 1990s, Osbaldo's youngest son, Osbaldo Pérez Ramirez bought the farm, and improved processes and planted more varieties to push quality. Today, Flor Del Cafe's varietal menagerie includes traditional varieties such as Bourbon, Caturra, Catuai, and Pache, alongside the more exotic Maracaturra, Maragogype, Pacamara, Laurina, Anacafe 14, and Geisha.

When processing cherry, Flor Del Cafe continues with traditional fermentation in tanks, agitation in washing channels, and patio drying. But the farm has also ventured into special processed lots such as honeys, naturals, and anaerobics. Parts of the estate are annexed for the production of 100% organic coffees, in order to produce high-quality organic certified coffees. Flor del Cafe currently exports its coffee to countries like the United States, Holland, Germany, Greece, Taiwan, China, Korea, and Japan, among others.
