San Vicente Pacaya has multiple micro climates which are perfect for coffee production. Weather is hot during the day but it cools down during the night providing an excellent opportunity for the coffee beans to develop complex chocolate notes. Producers in San Vicente take careful steps in picking ripe and uniform cherries. Regional mills have strict wet milling practices. This coffee comes from Jorge Perea, a third generation coffee producer. In one of his farms the rumbling noise of bee nests sound in the distance. In between the coffee crops apricot trees make a delicious treat. Don Francisco Ramirez Escobar, "Don Chicon", also contributed to this lot. Recently, due to his age, Don Chicon asked his nephew Alfonso "Ponchito" to help out on his farm activities. Ponchito built a mill in 2014, which they have operated for two crops with great success.

Awesome right off the roast
It may be premature to review this coffee just after roasting it, but I wanted to do it while I remembered to do it. I'm not getting the dominant tones they describe here; for me, the dominant note is milk chocolate. The body is very smooth, and this is one of those rare coffees I could serve right off the roast without resting. There is no woodiness or bitterness. Definitely will be buying more.
