Guatemala Monte de Oro Gesha
Includes 8 oz whole bean coffee bag and an original 35 mm print postcard from our travels to Monte de Oro.
AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER. Monte de Oro Gesha is a limited edition Reserve product that will be roasted on December 16 and shipped on December 17. Any other items ordered with this coffee will also be shipped on December 17.
Monte de Oro sits in the volcanically active and fertile region of Acatenango. Mario Rene Alarcón and his son Mario Ricardo Alarcón own and manage the 24 hectare farm.
Monte de Oro produces one of Guatemala’s best representations of the Gesha variety’s coveted floral and citrus flavors, coming from original Panama Gesha seedstock. Their natural process adds a colorful pink and purple hue to this classic profile. Through extremely meticulous processing in their newly constructed drying house they manage to consistently produce one of the cleanest natural processed coffees we’ve ever had.
This is our second year buying this coffee directly from Monte de Oro. We scored this lot a 90 and purchased 60kg for $11.00/lb FOB, on a day when the Coffee Commodity price was $0.90/lb.
