Finca las Anonas is owned by Don Pascual Teletor, who is part of the Volcafe Way group of producers and one of the most collaborative in the group. Don Pascual used to live and work in the United States, but he always dreamed of returning to Cubulco, buying a plot of land and becoming a coffee producer a dream he made come true! His farm in the village of Chimacho, in Cubulco, is 8.4 hectares (20.7 acres), of which 1.45 hectares (3.5 acres) are planted with coffee. On the remaining land, he grows crops such as beans and corn, some of which he keeps for his own consumption. He named his farm Las Anonas after the fruit also known as sugar apples, or cherimoya which are common to the region and were plentiful on the farm when he bought it.
This coffee is a fine example of just how diverse Guatemalan coffees can be. We are enjoying this coffee for its forward notes of Granny Smith apple, creamy body, and caramel cookie finish.
