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.

Versatile and delicious
by Camas Coffee
Just received a bag of Cubulco. Did 3 different test profile roasts from light (just after 1st crack) to dark (dropped at first signs of 2nd crack). This coffee roasts very predictably and is easy to control in the roaster. The light roast was sweet with juicy orange. The dark roast had a distinctive dark chocolate note with more body I'd describe as syrupy molasses. Cubulco is one of those coffees that is good across the roast spectrum and can suit a range of tastes. Highly recommend!
Great roasting and drinking coffee

I love this coffee. I have bought maybe 4 of these bags and it is so consistent. People seem to love the flavor. To me it is best at City +. Customers love the smooth taste.
