El Rosario - Victor Inés Villatoro Cruz
Coffee from Huehuetenango, Guatemala is considered to be one of the most flavorsome cups in the world, and this fully washed caturra from Victor Inés Villatoro Cruz of el Rosario is no exception. It's clean and classy with notes of poached pear, florals and milk chocolate raisins with a crisp lime acidity.
We had the pleasure of spending a morning with Victor during our visit to Huehuetenango, at times leaving us in his wake as he traversed up the slopes of his rope like a mountain goat.
El Rosario was left to Victor by his father in 2000, and since then he has worked tirelessly to turn the forest he inherited into a farm producing coffee of only the highest quality. Victor hopes to continue to expand and improve his practices by further separating lots and obtaining organic certification.
After spending the morning with Victor, we cupped his caturra after our 'light' lunch of tacos later that afternoon. We were rapt with its delicate fruits and florals, pleasant chocolates and bright acidity. We hope you are too.
