Guatemala El Piloncito
StoryChimaltenango is right in the shadow of the Volcán de Fuego which we all know erupted this year in June. Thankfully El Piloncito had no workers on the farm at the time so other than ash falling onto the farm they all safe and sound.
As to what effect it will have on their crop in the 2018/ 2019 harvest that remains to be seen. We believe this is also why our specific lot of coffee was delayed this year. Good things come to those who wait and we are excited to be bringing the Rosales into the US for a 2nd year in a row.
Both Alvin and Deaton have been to the small farm and spent some time walking the property hearing about Gustavo’s plans for the future. He is planning to expand his Gesha variety considerably and is excited about the potential of the plants quality and prices.
We hope you enjoy El Piloncito this year as much as we are in the roastery.More
