Guatemala El Tambor
Finca El Tambor is located in Palencia, just outside of Guatemala City. The farm was once a mineral mine, before the new owner bought the land and started a coffee plantation. The area has a great climate for growing coffee: a temperate cool and dry landscape, receiving about 60 inches of rainfall each rainy season.
Voted one of the top 10 coffees in the 2010 Guatemala Cup of Excellence, Finca El Tambor continues to focus on quality. Coffee cherry is picked selectively: only the ripest are harvested. We are really excited to include this coffee in our offerings list as we feel that it is a great representation of the best of Guatemala.
Dynamic acidity highlights sweetness and brings out notes of milk chocolate and citrus
