About this coffee;
La Nueva Era is located in a small village called Jumaytepeque in the foothills of the Jumaytepeque volcano. This is one of the first areas in Guatemala to grow coffee and the higher levels of potassium found in the soil tends to give these coffees a bit of extra body.
A number of farmers contribute to this lot and their coffee drying time depends on the amount of sun they receive during the day which is determined by their altitude. Those drying their coffee at lower altitudes are likely to dry the cherries in around 10 days whereas those at more like 1,800 metres above sea level can expect another 5 days for the coffee to reach the desired moisture level.
The producer, Fedecocagua, is a huge cooperative organisation made up of around 150 co-ops totalling 20,000 members around Guatemala. This allows consistency of production and exportation for the many farmers involved as 70% of them are members of indigenous groups from all over the country.
This coffee is well rounded with a creamy mouthfeel and plenty of dark berry flavours.
