This Guatemalan coffee is bursting with notes of apple cider, brown sugar, and fig. This washed Guatemalan is very sweet, with apple-like brightness, and a syrupy mouthfeel. As this coffee begins to cool it's flavors bring a beautiful reminder of the changing season.

Flavor Notes: apple cider, brown sugar, fig
Roast: Light
Processing: Wet Process (Washed)
Region: Antigua
Drying Method: Raised Bed Covered Sun-Dried
Arrival Date: July 2020 Arrival

About the Farm: Pulcal is an old coffee estate overlooking the colonial city of Antigua, and is situated at a range of 6000 feet in altitude. The farm dates to early colonial times (check out the neat tile crest in the first photo below), but coffee was planted in the late 1800s and first exported in 1918. The farm is said to have a unique micro-climate in the Antigua valley, as well as hillside exposure and well-draining soils. "Inteligente" refers to a specific block of the farm, planted in old Typica and Bourbon cultivar trees. It's all the way at the top and has the best sun exposure and ideal topography. To form this lot, we cupped several small "day lots" (coffee lots that are kept separate by each delivery day), selecting those that had the best sweetness and brightness. Inteligente is from the upper part of the farm, the highest altitude on the farm, and so tends to ripen in the middle harvest.
