    It all started in Antigua Valley in 1908, when Ricardo’s great grandfather had the vision of getting involved in the coffee industry. Immediately, he started acquiring properties in different parts of Guatemala, which became the beautiful coffee farms they have today. Family members of the generations that followed him grew up surrounded by coffee plantations and devoted their lives to the quality and production of coffee, becoming some of the first coffee exporters from Guatemala.

    Management of the farms was passed on from generation to generation. It was until 1989 when Ricardo Zelaya, the fourth generation of coffee growers, completed his degree in agribusiness from Zamorano and the University of Florida, and eagerly started transforming the farms into what they are today. This moment marked the beginning of their company, with a small but passionate crew excited to work hard and produce the highest quality coffee in the world.

    Over 25 years later, they are now a strong team under Ricardo’s wings. A team who is committed and in love with the gallant beverage they produce and their social and environmental responsibilities. Ricardo’s laugh, philosophy, and passion are the key factors in the success of their happy business culture and our internationally recognized coffees.

No. 6

Great coffee - I ground fine (10-12 on the Encore) and do pour overs. I bought this with another brand, that actually smells better as a bean, but once brewed the No. 6 tastes so much better. Currently my favourite coffee.

Quite roasty and heavy

Compared to other light roasted single origin beans, this one is quite roasty and has a noticeable harshness. The best cup I've had out of it so far is with a fairly high extraction where the sweetness starts to balance out the acrid notes a bit, but there is no fruitiness or brightness. The body is nice, and the profile is rich. Not my favourite though.
