GUATEMALA | LAKE AMATITLAN is processed by the wet mill Lirios de Belen owned by the Starry family, whom we had the pleasure of getting to know on our 2018 trip to Guatemala. It was grown by small producers in the area surrounding of Lake Amatitlan that, in years past, were forced to sell their coffee in cherry (unprocessed) for a very small profit. Benificio Lirios de Belen is the first and only wet mill in the area that will process coffee from other farms and small producers. It is the belief of the Starry family that by doing this, the people surrounding their farms and wet mill will obtain a better profit for their coffee and help them increase both their coffee quality and their way of living.
In the cup it has notes of dark chocolate and toffee with a citrus like acidity.
