Brews well in all brew methods, but especially well as a light espresso, on Aeropress or as pour-over.
More About Finca La Bendicion
Finca La Bendicion, meaning “the Blessing” in Spanish, is located in the village of El Paraiso, La Libertad municipality in the Huehuetenango region of Guatemala. The land is deep and fertile with a lot of calcium carbonate while chalum shade trees, which are good at fixing nitrogen, improve the soil and protect and shade coffee trees.
Edelfo Hidalgo Don Roger, owner of Finca la Bendicion, got an education and became a school teacher in the 1970s. He returned to teach in his community. Knowing he wanted to do more than teach, Don Roger saved his money. He soon purchased his first parcel of coffee land and thus, became a coffee grower.
The cherry is fully washed and dried on patios in the sun. The farm produces approximately 500 quintals (1 quintal is approximately 46 kg) of high-quality parchment annually.

Join ROAST Coffee on an origin trip around the beautiful coffee districts of Colombia! 🙆♀️☕️😁
You'll see and experience the coffee harvest for yourself, talk to farmers, see different processing methods and taste some of the world's best coffees. You will gain deeper insight into everything related to the coffee cherry - tasting different varieties, learning about defects, even picking the cherries yourself!
Our Head Barista, Krista, together with our local partner Colombian Spirit #colombianspirit will drive you around different farms and processing facilities (see schedule in fb event), translating and of course introducing you to Colombia's amazing nature, small towns, cuisine and of course, coffee!
We will further explain the processes, how this affects brewing and ultimately the quality of the cup, as well as giving further insight into cupping, how to taste coffee and the sensory aspects of this beautiful cherry.
FOR FURTHER INFORMATION: Come and join us for a cozy evening on Friday 15th November or 4th of December where you can see photos from Krista's trip to Colombia in March 2019 and hear about your chance to join her for next year's ROAST Coffee Origin Trip 2020.
Don't hesitate to write Krista at firstname.lastname@example.org if there are any other questions what-so-ever!
Our very own Joe Dennis, Head of Education and certified SCA trainer, has flown over to Peru to be an observer on the international jury in the Cup of Excellence (CoE) competition. 👏☕️
After a day of calibration, i.e. 4 rounds of tasting 8 coffees and comparing cupping scores to see if the jury is calibrated with each other, the competition progresses to cupping the top 40 coffees of Peru, whittling it down to the top ten best of Peru for 2019. 🇵🇪 👌
This is akin to a farmer winning the "Oscars" of the coffee industry. Not only does it put Peru on the map for exceptional coffee, but its impact reaches further in terms of socio/economic influences in coffee, along with general coffee quality standards. 🌎 🧡
We are super proud to have him over there, and cannot wait to hear the whole story when he gets back! Until then, look out for our Instagram Stories, for instant updates/photos, etc. 🙆♀️ ... See MoreSee Less
