Finca Las Naranjas is owned by Don Ruben Ajualip Gonzalez. He has been one of the most important collaborators in the project. Don Ruben inherited his farm from his father some years ago, but it was in 2005 when the coffee crop started to improve. The farm is located in Caserio Chuachacalte and has an area of 2.45 HAs of which, all is planted with coffee. His family also produces corn and beans for their own consumption. Finca Las Anonas, owned by Don Pascual Teletor, is also a strong contributor to this lot. The farm is located in the village of Chimacho in Cubulco. Don Pascual is also one of the most collaborative producers in the Volcafe Way group. Don Pascual used to live and work in the U.S., but he always wanted to come back to Cubulco to become a coffee producer. He currently has a plot of 8.4 HAs of which 1.45 HAs are planted with coffee. Besides coffee he also has other crops, such as beans and corn, for his own consumption.

Good purchase

All around good cup of coffee. Honey and raisin-like sweetness stood out. We roasted 1.5 min after FC which was @ 8.5min around 385 degrees. Dropped @ 408 degrees F.

Easy crowd pleaser


We've used many boxes of this coffee this year and last. It's not extremely distinct, as you might expect with a regional blend, but it has basically no downside. It doesn't do super-bright, and doesn't express a ton of fruit. Espresso is chocolate-notes. It roasts well from city+ to French Roast, so it's been hyper flexible for blending, cold brew, and for single origin espresso, particularly for places that sell more milk drinks. It's a good value coffee.
