Barismo coffee: Buena Esperanza, Guatemala

By rolando March 8, 2012

Welcome back¬†Barismo. We’re pouring a coffee called Buena Esperanza from Guatemala. The coffee varietal is Mundo Nuevo, which is typically not well-respected. It’s usually grown at low elevations in Brazil. You see it sold cheap, ground in grocery stores there.

Gustavo Alfaro decided to grow the coffee plants at really high elevations to see what would happen. I think the results are really yummy. Buena Esperanza is the name of the particular lot on the Hacienda Santa Rosa coffee plantation.¬†We’ll be pouring this in our guest slot for the next few weeks. If you’re by, ask for a taste.
