About This Coffee
Father and son Arturo and Vielmann Villatoro formed Finca Los Angeles in 1980, and their coffee is grown on 98 out of the 120 hectares that encompass this northern Guatemala farm straddling both sides of a sheer ridgeline. If you look from that ridgeline to the northwest, you can almost see Mexico across the wide valley. Luckily, most of the Villatoro land is covered in shade trees to protect the Bourbon, Caturra, and Maragogype coffee plants below.
Arturo Villatoro and his son Vielmann use pure mountain spring water to process their coffee, resulting in a spectacular example of a high grown Guatemalan coffee. For 11 years Vielmann lived and worked in Los Angeles. After saving enough money he left the US, returned to Guatemala, married his wife, and bought more land to grow coffee alongside his father Arturo.
Medium roast, with notes of candy bar, buttery smooth, raisin. Washed-process, whole bean, freshly roasted coffee.
