Valmar Estate is located in a perfect area with steep mountains and verdant rainforest. Located in the upper half of Alta Verapaz, very close to Coban, where very hard bean coffee is produced. When the Valmar estate was awarded to the current owner's great-grandfather by the President of Guatemala, it has been a family business since it became a coffee plantation in 1875. The coffee estate has 187 hectares of coffee plantations, with a variety of varieties (Bourbon, Caturra, Catuai, Pache).
They very focused on environmental responsibility during the coffee growing process. They retain the native natural forest, and another 100 hectares are reforested to plant pine and cypress trees. This action helps preserve the natural water source in the manor and allows all kinds of animals to Perched, like deer, birds, and squirrels.
On the other hand, they also use peeled coffee residues as organic compost. Coffee quality is also an important consideration. They take care of every step of the production process. From the selection of seeds to the final storage, coffee is hand picked by hand.
This coffee is smooth & juicy, with cranberry & blackcurrant fruity notes, finish with a hint of almond aftertaste. A very enjoyable cuppa.

It taste good
It is slightly acidic but smooth at the end, found out it was under-extracted. Adjusted to grind it finer :)
Heavy body with complex acidity. Sweet!
