This new Brown Label Guatemalan coffee probably doesn't deserve to be a brown label. It is rich in flavor with an underlying sweetness. This coffee gives you everything you want to have in a great Guatemalan coffee. Tropical Fruit and Lemon Drops with a creamy body and sweet finish. I think this coffee will be a favorite for many of our regulars. It really shines as a cold brew.

Romelia Sánchez Gómez Coffee Production
In 2006, Doña Romelia Sánchez Gómez purchased her farm from Mr. Jose Sanchez. The land had been somewhat utilized for coffee production, but under Romelia's keen eye the plants have flourished and productivity has increased. She is deft and detail-oriented, with a care for the condition of her family, her workers, plants, and soil.
Over time, she's planning to expand the farm, buying new land as well as introducing new management techniques to improve the cultivation of coffee. La Florida's annual production is 270 quintal parchment. The farm is shaded by Chalum and Gravilea trees, and rolling cloud cover cools the Santa Barbara area throughout the day. The farm also produces peaches and avocados.
