Guatemala San Carlos
Roaster: Pamela Aranciaga Mauricio
The main cultivar found on this farm is 100 to 135 year old Bourbon varietals.The trick to keeping this variety productive for so long is by alternating between plants harvested every year. The natural cycle of a coffee plant is to produce every two years, however, humans have been able to stress the plants to produce every year. On San Carlos the plants remain productive and live longer by allowing plants to rest each year between production.
