It all began in the back of an Uber back in April at SCAA. When brilliant roasters meet, this is the outcome! We are really excited to offer our customers this unique and rare coffee. It is a bit of a collaboration we did with Huckleberry Roasters out of Denver, CO. Kevin, the headroaster of Huckleberry, has an incredible passion for this specific area in Guatemala where he lived for a brief period of time. He knows the lay of the land and it really shows with this coffee!
Manuel Tzic Saso's farm is at 1875 masl in Aldea Panyebar. Aldea roughly translates to township, and Panyebar is officially part of the town of San Juan la Laguna, on the southwest shore of Lake Atitlan. Panyebar is 5-10 miles uphill from the lake shore. But, to actually get there you'd need to drive from San Juan north along the lake shore, then upmountain to Santa Clara, then back down the backside of the ridge that sits above San Juan. All said, it's about 15 miles and an hour of driving from the lake to Manuel's house.
Manuel washes and ferments his coffee on-farm in buckets, and dries his coffee on patio. This is a unique process, since most farmers are processing their coffees at 3rd party facilities. It is all caturra and bourbon, and total production is about 20 bags.
The guys at Huckleberry did an amazing job sourcing some of the most unique coffees from Guatemala. This coffee is in limited supply so get yours while supplies last!
