NO SPEED / DECAF - Guatemala - Flor Del Cafe
Flor Del Cafe is a surprisingly complex and vibrant lot, perhaps owing to the high altitudes and ideal growing conditions of Agua Dulce, Cuilco, a remote part of western Huehuetenango. We source this coffee through Onyx Importers, a compayn founded and operated by Edwin Martinez, a coffee farmer himself from Guatemala.
In the 1940s, the first seedlings of Arabia coffee were planted in Agua Dulce. The high ridged, verdant mountains of this extremely remote area made not only for an idyllic new home for many families, but the perfect growing conditions for coffee.
One of the first families to cultivate coffee were the Perez family. The oldest, Osbaldo Perez worked tirelessly with his siblings to grow coffee successfully, and over the decades the family founded several estates throughout the valley. One of the farms, called "Flor Del Cafe", or The Coffee Flower, would become one of the most prestigious coffee estates in the region, well regarded by coffee people around the world.
Over the years, Don Osbaldo's sons innovated new agricultural techniques and implemented natural applications throughout the farm for disease and pest control. In the 1990's, Osbaldo's youngest son, Osbaldo Perez Ramirez bought the farm and improved processes and planted more varieties to push quality.
