How and why we got this coffee
We first met Carlos-san, the representative of Good Coffee Farms,
at SCAJ2019. Good Coffee Farms imports green beans from well-selected farms in Guatemala,
including Las Brisas. They introduce very clean coffee with tender acidity, no matter what
the process is- dry- washed, honey process or natural. We loved all of their coffee, but the
Catual from Las Brisas were particularly memorable. As it cooled down, the flavor developed
to more complex, creamy but refreshing and gorgeous like fresh kumquats.
"Dry-washed" may not be a widely known process in the coffee industry.
It is a pulping system that uses a bicycle-powered threshing machine, invented by Carlos-san.
Environmentally friendly and financially friendly, this system does not require any water,
fuel or electricity.
