Description: This natural from the Navarro Family is processed at their Coffee Nace Micromill, and grown on a farm that was purchased in 1945 by Apolonio Navarro. When he bought the 12 hectare farm, it was planted with sugarcane, beans, and plantains. In 1948 he purchased his first coffee plants, and they were delivered on small carts pulled by oxen, as the rural roads were difficult to access by vehicle. The family has come a long way since then, building their centrally located micromill that serves multiple farms. At this pristine mill, they rely on generations of experience to process some incredible coffees. This handpicked lot, was dried slowly on raised beds for 25 days, and allowed to rest for 2 months before hulling for export.

This one arrived cupping even better than we remember the preship samples, and we’re releasing a very small amount, just for home roasters. The cup profile of this one is really unique, we get notes of Watermelon and Fresh Peach with Sweet Cream and a finish of vibrant Cacao.

I just roasted the coffee today so I don't have an evaluation on it yet.

Fruity and tasty

Incredible fruity/floral fragrance to the green beans. I needed more time than expected in the roaster to get first crack and dark enough color. Once done, however, enjoyed the very fruity flavor - in keeping with the green fragrance. However, my wife didn’t like it!! She likes our Columbia-Guatemala blend much more.

farm to cup

We get our beans from the farms and roast coffee daily. We truly are farm to cup.
