Guatemala Santa Clara
Honey Graham // Juicy Apple // Citrus
Santa Clara is a long-time top coffee out of Guatemala. Ricardo Zelaya's family has been growing coffee for generations, and Santa Clara is a multiple time Cup of Excellence winner.
One the biggest highlights from the trip to the Zelaya farms in the spring of this year was at Santa Clara. Ricardo and his daughter Katia took us up to the highest reaches of the farm on the back of all terrain vehicles to catch dusk over Antigua from the avocado orchards at the top of the property. We talked about new upcoming coffee projects, armed robbers who steal their avocados, and the inner workings of each of our businesses which span the coffee supply chain.
We cupped hundreds of coffees on this trip, and Santa Clara is one of the big standouts. We are fortunate to now be a part of the collective who have purchased and enjoyed Ricardo's spectacular coffees. We know you'll enjoy them too.
