Notes from Bows:
This is our 6th year buying from Ader and family, whose farm is atop a beautiful mountain ridge overlooking a valley near the border with Chiapas, Mexico. This has been another difficult year for all with transport and milling restrictions delaying the arrival of coffee to North America. We committed to as much of Ader's coffee as we could reasonably take on - the rest went to Australia. We also buy from his neighbour, Jesús Constanza. Ader's farm sits about 300 metres above the better known Finca La Bolsa which put La Libertad on the specialty coffee map.
We buy from four distinct growing regions in Guatemala with very different microclimates. Huehuetenango is know for it's high elevation, delicate acidity, subtle florals and citrus.
