La Providencia Single Origin Espresso 250g


Our single origin espresso offers an alternative to our popular blend. Expect a mild acidity, flavours of chocolate and caramel, and a very smooth finish. With milk this is a very easy drinking coffee.

Finca La Providencia is situated in the high mountains surrounding the town of San Pedro Necta in Huehuetenango, Guatemala. The farm has been in the Palacios family since 1954, and since that time it has been passed down through three generations to the current owner, Max Ariel Palacios Villatoro.

The harvest begins in late December and ends in early April. Coffee is selectively hand harvested, with pickers choosing only the ripest cherries, and is then eco-pulped using the farm’s multiple Penagos pulpers. The pulpers reduce the environmental impact of wet processing by reducing water usage and waste. After pulping, the mucilage is removed and then the coffee is delivered to dry on the farm’s extensive patios or (if the weather is wet) in the guardiolas, where it dries at a slow and even temperature.
