Finca El Platanillo is also known as Pura Fruta, aptly named as it's one of the most fruit-forward coffees we've tasted from Guatemala. All of the prominent and revered types of fruit / acidity are present here. It comes from Coban, Guatemala, in the Western part of the country, in a 347-hectare farm that also has Rainforest Alliance certification.
We have been featuring this coffee in our sublime blend, Nine Nouveau, and has been the base of Espresso Nectar for several months. It's truly a fantastic cup, one that will appeal to all types of coffee drinkers, from those that are looking for a wilder fruit-forward experience, to those that are looking for a round profile, big body, and pairs beautifully with milk.
