The San Jacinto comes from the collective production of three small producers located in San Pedro Necta, Huehuetenango.
The Bella Vista mill first sourced these coffees with the help of Byron Benavente (a long-time Bella Vista colleague), who helps them outsource coffee from this area of Huehuetenango. Through Byron, the trio of families have also received assistance in improving their agricultural management and processing at their wet mill using Bella Vista-inspired methods.
The three varieties composing this coffee are 70% Bourbon and 30% Caturra and Pache. There are two rounds of picking and coffee is handpicked and sorted by the members of the family, who also oversee their own wet mill processing and drying on their own patios.
This lot was sourced via our new partnership with Collaborative Coffee Source who work exclusively with the Bella Vista mill in Guatemala.
Each bag contains 340 grams (12 ounces) of whole beans. If you would like us to grind your coffee, please let us know which method you use at home and it will be a pleasure to prepare it for you!
