Guatemala Tactic Santa Sofia
Farmer Pablo Ferrigno had the wild idea to cultivate coffee on a mountain 1,800 meters high, where it had never been grown before. Suspended in cloud forests, this extreme microclimate has eleven months of rain each year, resulting in few hours of sunlight and unpredictable coffee ripening. Ferrigno has done what great innovators do: make the most out of a tricky situation. Climatic stress is hard on the farmer, but sometimes it brings out the best in fruit. This is the case for this single origin, which is tantalizingly sweet, berry-forward, and always lingering.
