About this coffee :

Luis Pedro Zelaya has earned a lot of attention around the cupping table and among learned coffee professionals. He has four generations of Guatemalan coffee culture pulsing through his veins and an Agribusiness degree from the renowned University of Zamorano.

His stellar professional reputation for producing world-class coffees is drawn from his ability to implement precise farm management and post-harvest processing decisions. The perennial arrival of the Bella Carmona lots personifies the combined execution of all the fundamentals. The process starts at the Zelaya’s family farm, Hacienda Carmona. where plant nutrition, pruning, and pest management are superb, which results in a selection of exquisite coffee cherries. At Bella Vista, the location of wet and dry-mill, Luis Pedro and his team meticulously process fully traceable lots by harvest date, location, variety, and altitude.

Coffee is depulped, fermented, and washed in a very traditional way perfected over the last 100 years. Then the coffee is gradually dried in a controlled environment designed to protect cup quality. Raised drying beds and sensor controlled airflow permit a more uniform drying process and an additional opportunity for hand sorting parchment as it dries.

The same focus on sorting and quality control is executed through to the final export stage. Bella Vista’s dry-mill has also been specifically designed for sorting high quality micro-lots. Bella Carmona is produced in the Antigua region, which has a protected designation of origin (PDO) established because of Antigua’s renowned coffee reputation.

This coffee has a nice, subtle acidity that reminds us of grapefruit & hints of orange peel with the contribution of washed processed with a clean finish. As the coffee beans are greenhouse dried slowly, you'll get a clean & syrupy mouthfeel of honeydew melon. The perfect morning cuppa to start your day.
