After his grandfather passed away, the farm stayed in the family and Armando continued to work on the farm. It wasn't until 1995 that Armando was able to start buying the farm from his uncles and aunts. Five years ago, he was finally able to purchase the farm. He has involved his entire family with producing coffee. Armando's wife, two sons, and two daughters help fertilize, plant, pick, and wash the coffee. According to Armando, "My mission for this year, with God's help, is to continue growing great quality coffee and my vision is to find a good client that will appreciate it and helps us grow."

Nice basic coffee

Guatemala had nice basic coffee flavor. Not to complex. Tasted like Arabica. I roasted it two minutes after second crack and rift at second crack. No change in taste except a little more burnt which is expected.

Guatemala Twi'Ha El Chalum/Rancho Grande/Columbia espresso blend

I'm using it in a blend for espresso drinks with Brazil Rancho Grande and a Columbian bean (I forget which one) and it is working out well but I haven't used it by itself so I can't speak to it's use in other methods.

Easy to roast. Versatile Guat!

I roasted at different levels on a Behmor AB. Was very easy. The light does not have as many notes popping out that are overwhelming like the other Guats from recent ( Los santos & Hanapu). When I want the notes to jump out like a pour over this one didn't standout as the others. But very good taste in all uses. Light to med is nice for drip and pour over, But medium also in a blend. I use medium in bulletproof mixture, and us it as blend with anything for espresso. Have not tried it as a cold brew, I prefer more fruit notes for that, but as it cools off at room temperature still very good taste. This batch had hints of notes of dried fruit and dark chocolate. I have not had any problem whatsoever with Bodhi Guats, they are some of my favorites.
