Get ready for a truly unique coffee experience, courtesy of Jose Humberto's Finca la Montanita in south-eastern Guatemala. These exquisite yellow catuai beans are carefully tended until they are ripe, and then put through a novel process only found on Jose's farm. Soaking in cold fermentation tanks with a secret formula of orange juice and orange peels makes this coffee truly one-of-a-kind. The orange juice fermentation lends a lot of character to the flavor profile of this coffee. Namely, a strong orange note and bright acidity that we love. The other benefit to processing coffee this way is the pervasive sweetness that fills the cup. There are also hints of savory cedar and cocoa that dry out this otherwise "juicy" coffee. La Montanita provides a truly unique flavor, and we're overjoyed that we get to send it your way. This is the type of coffee you'll remember for a long time!
