Tasting Notes

Grapefruit and toasted almond in the aroma. A full bodied cup that gives way to hints of peach and chocolate as the cup cools.

Background Info


This farm and the coffee which grows there, did not come easily. At the lowest moment, the farm was impounded by the bank and put up for auction. Many people tried to bid with low prices to purchase the land at a bargain. However, their low offers where not accepted by the bank and luckily this gave Farm owner Guillermo Montenegro Ayestas enough time to sort out his finances and regain control of the land. 

Over the last 8 years Guillermo and his family have been focused on producing top quality coffees, in fact nearly every year since 2011 the family’s coffee has placed in the national cup of excellence, reaching 7th place in 2017. There is no specific role for each person, the whole family works together to do what needs to be done with the support of everyone. 

The Farm is 56 hectares with 28 hectares planted in Coffee of the Bourbon, Maracaturra, and Pacamara variety we are currently roasting. The coffee is fermented 24 hours washed and then dried on shaded raised beds beds at El Beneficio La Estrella.

This farm has faced it fair share of problems which led to its unsteady financial situation and the resulting impounding but the hard work of this family has meant that they have transformed this land through the production of outstanding coffees.
