La Esperanza, from Huehuetenango

Our Team at The Strictly Coffee HQ (on Frederick St) were lucky to have sourced an extremely limited quantity of a stunning Guatemalan single origin micro-lot coffee.
this came from the farm “La Esperanza”, near La Libertad, Huehuetenango. This was grown by the family of Eleodoro Villatoro who has been farming the same land since 1953.

we had roasted it in two styles. Lightly roasted to suit soft brew methods like Aeropress and Chemex and full espresso for home machines.
