This coffee is medium roasted and offers a medium body with a pleasant sweetness. You’ll notice the balanced acidity with notes of white grape and milk chocolate in the cup. When you grind this coffee in the morning, the smell alone will will make you smile. Trust me. 🙂
About the farm….
The Concepción Pixcayá Farm is located in the municipality of San Juan Sacatepéquez, department of Guatemala, Guatemala. Finca Concepcion Pixcayá was founded in 1926 by Sr. Carlos Mirón Armas and Sra. Maria Muñoz de Mirón. The farm’s current owner, Sr. Manuel Zaghi Mirón is the fourth generation of his family to work this land, and he maintains the farm in pristine condition with the help of his mother, Maria Mirón de Zaghi.
The farm itself is mid-sized, covering around 150 hectares; however, the area under coffee only extends across just over 22 hectares at a prime coffee-growing altitude of 1,900 metres on average. The rest of the land is devoted to macadamia nut farming, which is the farm’s primary agricultural product and covers just over 51 hectares. The rest of the land is kept under forest cover as conservation area. The combination of soil, climate and altitude make for amazing coffee producing land, as evidenced by the farm’s performance at the Guatemala Cup of Excellence competition, in which they have placed no fewer than four times!
