Guatemala Don Santos Microlot

Size

For the past several years, the AProCafé Growers Association has been the bedrock of Huckleberry’s Central American lineup, and its single farmer microlots have been the icing on top of the cake. We’re mixing metaphors, but you get the point: the group is incredibly important to our coffee lineup, from blends to single origins, and the single farmer coffees we pick out every year are among our favorite coffees from Central America.

Santos Tzoc Jorge is new to the microlot lineup this year, and even though we’ve singled out the other farmers’ coffee in the past, Santos produced the association’s top-scoring coffee this year. Manuel Tzic Saso has featured in our lineup for several years, and Santos is his neighbor, just a stones throw down the road in the village of Panyebar. His farm sits at an equally sky-high 1800-1875 meters above the sea, so while Santos is new to our lineup, it’s no surprise that the coffee is tasty!

Huckleberry is roasting just a tiny amount of Santos’ coffee this year, but this two bag outturn from the end of harvest blew us away - we’re tasting dried apricot, chocolate-hazelnut, and tangerine in this hella tasty coffee. As part of our work with AProCafé, Huckleberry has helped connect the group with other roasters in the US over the past few years. Switchback Coffee Roasters in Colorado Springs is toasting up another tasty, earlier harvest lot from Santos. They’re both delicious, so we’d recommend brewing up a bit of coffee from our friends just south of Denver (after brewing ours first, of course). We’re excited to roast up another delicious coffee from Atitlán for the next few weeks and single out Don Santos for the first time!
