Guatemala El Platanillo

Grown in the San Marcos region of Guatemala, Finca El Platanillo is the first farm in the world to be certified as Climate Friendly by the RFA. In addition to being extremely conscious of the environment and the effects they can have on it, the farm has partnered with Nuevo Platanillo School, donating land and resources to help facilitate the school alongside its Coffee Degree program, where teens learn about coffee production, improvement and sustainability. All of this results in a coffee culture cultivated for continued success for both the farm, and the beneficiaries of it, as they strive to create a phenomenal coffee and community surrounding it. This semi sweet coffee is grown at 1,350 meters above sea level, and contains lingering notes of Bittersweet Dark Chocolate with a medium acidity.
