Sourced and imported by Onyx Coffee as part of their Onyx Gem collection: the absolute best of Guatemalan coffee.

"This single-varietal washed Bourbon lot was prepared meticulously by Juan Villatoro and his son Milton, and it shows in an extremely structured and complex cup.

"Juan Villatoro didn't start out growing coffee like his brothers and father before him. In the 1970's and early 80s, he was raising cattle and growing corn. His father had given him a small lot for coffee production, so he began planting coffee. As the cattle business died away, he worked in the coffee nursery and then fully committed to coffee, buying up other small lots for production. At 63, Juan enjoys playing the piano and dedicating time to his grandson Raúl.

"Juan's wife Lesvia Martinez and his son Milton Villatoro Martínez both help manage the farm. They've faced many challenges over the years, from the 1987 natural disaster destroying his bodega and wet mill, to the constant challenge to control coffee leaf rust. He is proud of his coffees, as well he has reason to be: El Milagro is a favorite every year with brilliant lime-like acidity, great structure, and nice stone fruit qualities."

This limited lot is available whole bean only. Don't miss the Huehuetanango Coffee + Honey Bundle, which pairs this coffee with Coffee Blossom Honey from another coffee farm in the same region!
