ABOUT THE PATRICIA PEREZ, FILTER
Deep in Agua Dulce on the western frontier of the remote region of Huehuetenango, Patricia skillfully and lovingly cares for her coffee plants from blossom to harvest. She lives with her mother Auri and her 7 year old daughter Iza in their simple, but charming house overlooking the drying patios. Following the passing of her father 14 years ago, she took over the family farm, becoming the first woman to own a farm (and to learn to drive!) in her village. She grows Bourbon, Caturra, Maragogype and Geisha in the shade of several fruit trees: lemon, orange, banana and apricot trees. This is our second year of relationship with this producer whom we visited for the first time last February.
This year's lot comes to us from the highest point of her farm and is made up of Bourbon and Caturra. This coffee is a perfect expression of its terroir; beautifully structured and balanced with deep notes of fudge, yellow plum and praline.
