GUATEMALA PRIMAVERA: Specialty Coffee Roasted at Meron

GUATEMALA PRIMAVERA

Explore the tasting notes of a single origin specialty coffee sourced from Guatemala freshly roasted in our coffee lab, at Meron Roastery. Here is some cool info about the coffee and the farm.

 

The farmers

With four generations of coffee growers in the family, Primavera has sprung from a rich tradition in coffee. The passion for quality goes beyond meeting the discerning expectations of the Third Wave coffee movement. Having operations in Guatemala allows the farmers to find the best coffees and their lean and efficient logistics grants roasters easy and safe access to work with the producers in a more direct and transparent trade.

 

Harvesting

Harvest in Guatemala lasts from mid-January through April, and this is the busiest time of year. There’s a lot going on all at once during these months: the farm is in full production, they are buying both parchment and cherry coffee on a daily basis, and they receive over 2,000 samples to analyze and cup in order to purchase exactly what we need for the customers.

 

Sustainability 

Encouraging coffee farms to work in harmony with their environment and local fauna can be beneficial both for the quality of the coffee and the environment in order to ensure the long-term sustainability of the ecosystem. The Primavera family provide information and workshops on sustainable farming practices, more efficient water use, waste water processing and fertilization so that they can work together for the conservation and protection of the environment. This way they can take care of the land so that it generously provides for the generations to come.
