Guatemala Cafe Palmira Huehuetenango

A performer from beginning to end. Sprite soda, cream, and a hint of clove in the nose. Clean, snappy, and refreshing, rich with veins of lime, green tea, and macaroon. A voluptuous, milky body that ends slowly and pronounced.

The Palacios family has been growing and harvesting coffee in Guatemala for nearly five generations. Introducing a farm’s coffee to the United States is very difficult to do yourself, but Carlos Palacios has done it single-handedly and without the help of exporters and brokers for years.

In 2009, this became Flamenco Organic’s first direct relationship coffee. Each year, they help to facilitate the unloading and storage of the family’s entire crop, and typically purchase a large majority of it.

While the Palacios farm is not organic-certified, they are a farm in transition. Flamenco Organic takes pride in their commitment to sustainability and their consistently improving quality.
