So lucky to be able to offer all of you this wonderfully sweet coffee through our amazing friends and partners at Bonaventure coffee project. This is the 1st Guatemalan offer we've purchased with Bonaventure but certainly not the last. With it's wonderful sweet candied jammy fruits & unctuous chocolatey body, this one is best enjoyed by the fire in your favorite holiday pyjamas.
For years famed Guatemalan producer and exporter Luis Pedro Zelaya has collected from small producers on the slopes of both volcanoes near Antigua to blend into specialty coffees marketed as the indigenous term “Hunapu”. These lots are typically day lot collections from numerous producers that roasters select from to build larger
lots - a collection of numbers and flavors.
In 2013 Kevin Bohlin asked Luis Pedro to select the first Hunapu producer to be separated and celebrated individually. Luis Pedro knew without question the most consistent individual in both production and quality, Eduardo “Guayo” Gomez, better known by his neighbors and friends as "DonGuayo". Eddie Gomez has added up a patchwork of small lots while also supporting his family and neighbors farms surrounding his own. Guayo receives premium pricing for his quality and consistency
which he is able to extend to his neighbors as well. We are thrilled to see the same opportunities open for new Hunapu producers as each season unfolds!
