Guatemala La Nueva Era

Cupping notes

Blackberry, blueberry, blackcurrant, hibiscus – lots of dark berry flavours balancing well with cocoa powder mouthfeel for a creamy, rounded coffee.

Description

Cooperativa Agrícola Integral La Nueva Era, R.L. is located in the village of Jumaytepeque, near Nueva Santa Rosa city. Falling under the Fraijanes Plateau type coffees, a higher potassium level in the soil tends to bring extra body to these coffees. Fraijanes is it’s own distinct region and actually one of the first areas to grow coffee in Guatemala. Volcan Jumaytepeque forms part of the chain of volcanoes in the area, though is not really active, and the village where the coop is based lies in the foothills of the volcano.

For the natural processed coffee, time under the sun is affected by the altitude. Farmers drying their cherries at a beneficio around 1000masl find it will take 10 to 12 days for the coffee to be ready; those with higher altitude facilities can expect an extra 5 days for the correct drying to be reached. The dried cherry is then collected and transported to the nearest warehouse the co-operative owns, before being transported to the dry mill facilities of Fedecocagua in Palin.
