I n the Atitlan region of central Guatemala, the Echeverria family has been producing and processing exceptional quality coffees since 1870. Originally named Finca Ceylan & Colima, the name was later changed to Finca Ceylan & Anexos (annexes) as other farms became a part of it. The farm hires local labor, generating jobs for people in the surrounding towns. Conscientious environmental practices are employed in and around the farm.


Green Analysis

The coffee residue from the wet mill is used as an organic fertilizer for the farm. The farm maintains the river basins and the natural vegetation that grows nearby. Before disposal, the water used in the wet mill processing is filtered through oxidation tanks to prevent contamination of the nearby rivers. Finca Ceylan has a natural forest reserve that is protected - hunting and fishing are prohibited - to conserve different species of trees, plants, and wildlife in the ecosystem. The farm has qualified for organic certification and is also bird-friendly certified by the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center. The farm’s employees and their families are provided with housing, drinkable water, and educational benefits.


Brew Analysis

 We brewed this sweet coffee with a couple different grind and dose sizes in order to explore the types of flavors we could achieve. To our chagrin, the results were very consistent! The thick texture and gentle citric acidity in this coffee maintained through our two different brew ratios, two different ends of the extraction percentage spectrum, and gave us a very enjoyable cup in both cases. Look for well balanced candied citrus, golden raisin, and vanilla notes in this coffee. Though we didn’t pull this coffee as an espresso, my hunch is that it would perform very well that way.
