Guatemala; Finca Retana
Flavor Profile: Wild-flower honey, sweet herbal notes, slight hints of plum, raisin, pear with a cedar/lemongrass finish. Specialty Coffee always at its best!
Finca Retana is a very traditional farm in central Antigua situated at 1550 meters on the valley floor. They have a small portion planted in Yellow Bourbon. Bourbon coffees are named after an island in the Indian Ocean where French colonists originally grew it, now called Reunion. Bourbon coffees tend to ripen earlier than other cultivars, and have a very balanced flavor profile with moderate acidity when cupped with other types planted in the same plot. They seem to have good bean density, and the plant is not stressed to overproduce fruit, unlike some of the modern Catimor hybrids as well as other types. Bourbon trees can remain productive for many years with good care.
