Caturras from Guatemala are usually known for their clear, light and tea-like character with a hint of fruity aromas. But things are different at the foot of Monte de Oro: this coffee is bursting with intensity! It is significantly fruitier and more tangy than other Caturras and reminds us of exotic fruits such as passion fruit or kumquat.
The Finca Monte de Oro is located in the Acatenango Valley, in the middle of the Balam Juyu mountains in southern Guatemala.
Mario Alarcon Mendelez is a fifth-generation coffee farmer. In 2008, he took over the management of the farm from his mother, who had been running it successfully until then. Since then, Mario has improved the farm's processing methods in particular and has built up a very good reputation in the specialty coffee world. He mainly focuses on the production of naturals and honeys, but also experiments with innovative processing methods (as with our coffee). In addition to his work as a farmer, Mario runs an export company for specialty coffee from Guatemala called "The GuatLab" together with Christian Starry. We have already sourced several coffees from Guatemala through this exporter in the past and are now delighted to have a coffee from Mario himself in our portfolio.
