Description: 100+ years ago Don Valentín Villatoro Ventura started planting coffee at Finca Las Rosas. Later Don Efraín took command of the plantations, after him Don Victor Villatoro with his wife Reyna Villatoro, and since 1986 Don Rolando Villatoro, their son, took over the magical treasure. Since Don Rolando took the leadership of the farm, he decided to direct the project to participate in SCA and since then the family has dedicated all its efforts to obtain high quality coffees and exotic varieties. If you ever visit the farm you will be amazed by the garden of coffee gems that you will discover, from Topacio, and various Geishas, to the varieties that we selected, H1 and Parainema. 

Processing is done with rigid standards: coffee beans are carefully hand-selected when they reach their optimal level of ripeness, typically between 18 to 24 degrees brix. Once harvested, the coffee cherries are depulped on the same day. The depulped beans are then left to ferment for a period of 48 to 72 hours, arranged in piles. Following the fermentation process, coffee is washed thoroughly with clean, natural water. 

After washing, coffee begins drying on African beds and patios for roughly two weeks, depending on the weather conditions. This step involves carefully spreading the beans out to dry, allowing the moisture content to reduce gradually. The coffee beans are constantly monitored and turned to ensure even drying. After fully dried, coffee is delivered to Dinamica, our export partner based in Guatemala City, where it will be milled and rest, awaiting it’s ship date.

Favorite Current Coffee

I bought a few pounds of the Natural as well as the Washed. I tend to prefer the fruitiness of natural processed beans, and this Guatemala Las Rosas H1 did not disappoint! Even the washed processed beans were floral and fruity. We picked out boysenberry notes, as well as almond extract and cola. It was delicious as an espresso, pour over, and even French Press. I roasted a few different profiles and found that my GF and I both preferred the city-city+ roast. As a lighter roast, the coffee was a bit tart. But at city+ the fruit notes turned sweeter.
