Welcome back Ixlama! We have sourced a new lot of this delicious specialty coffee via our friend's at Charleston owned Balzac Brothers and their partner Transcafe in Guatemala.
We are loving this coffee as espresso - round, sweet, and balanced with soft, juicy acidity. Yes, please.
Ixlama is a shade-grown coffee, near the Guatemalan - Mexico border, that is harvested and brought to mill at Caserio Teogal Aldea San Martin, located near the town of Todos Santos. At mill, the coffees are sun-dried on cement patios for four days before being placed in "guardiolas," a type of coffee dryer patented by a Guatemalan resident in 1872. The coffees are then computer-sorted by color and separated by density mechanically, resulting in a superior, clean, and bright cup.
