Catalan Bourbon - Guatemala

$ 20.00

Since 2013, Pilot has observed the growth, innovation and constant increase in quality of producer Nicholas Hammond and Catalan de Las Mercedes. Its precision sorting and processing has helped put its town of San Martin Jilotepeque on the coffee production map, and its wet mill, which also resides on farmland, operates day in and day out with local farmers delivering their goods. ripe cherries for Catalan to buy.

Although Nico grows other varieties like Geisha and Pacamara in smaller quantities, the hand-picked red and yellow Bourbons are what make him famous. This wonderfully sweet batch is a red honey process, which means a good deal of the mucilage has been left on the seeds to dry on raised beds. The treatment of honey by Nico gives notes of date sugar and a creamy mouthfeel that makes it an excellent espresso.

All the reasons we liked the Catalan de Las Mercedes are fully realized in this cafe, and observing the constant progress only makes it even sweeter.
