El Bosque from Guatemala was founded in 1932 on a small plot of land in Guatemala’s western highlands. Today, the family-run farm is managed by four brothers of the Flores family, Julio, José, Francisco and Mario, who are 3rd generation coffee farmers. The farm is named El Bosque (meaning "the forest") because of the large beautiful shade trees that lie around the farm.
This lot from El Bosque adds rich chocolatey notes and body to the espresso with a creamy mouthfeel, that lingers with a hint of fruity acidity.
This coffee was grown by smallholder farmers living in and around the Kangunu Factory in Kenya's Murang'a County. Factories such as Kangunu serve as community washing stations where producers deliver coffee cherries direct from their farms. In these areas, cherries are handpicked and sorted by hand to separate the ripe and unripe ones. This process is painstaking but ultimately determines the clean and elegant cup profile Kenyan coffee is known for.
Kangunu's cup profile lends this espresso blend a delicate sweetness, with notes of currants and a jammy finish.
