Coffee was first established around 1920. Since then, one of Guatemala´s best coffees has been produced in moderate quantities. We put special attention on quality, by being very conscious on the cherry picking stage. It is our highest priority to have the most mature cherries brought in to our mill, at a strictly monitored dark red wine color, almost purple.
This is probably the most exciting preparation of all. We allow the cherries to mature to it´s maximum, and then, still on the tree, we let them start to over ripe just to the point where the skin starts to roughen up. Precisely then, cherries are carefully set on the sun drying patio, caressing them with a palm tree leaf every hour, so that no squeezing occurs, for about 15 days. When they are at a date-like stage, we move them to African beds in the greenhouse. In there, they rest for a few more days, until they are dry. This might take another 15 days.
In conclusion, Medal Raisin Natural is a very memorable coffee ! It is at its best when you brew it as a pour over for instance via the V60 or as wild SO espresso as well !
SCA (Speciality Coffee Association) scores coffee in a process called cupping in ten different areas in order to reach a coffee score (Specialty Coffee Scoring). The summation gives the overall score of the coffee.
We prefer send you only whole beans in Biotre packaging. This way your coffee will be more fresh and less stressed due to traveling when you taste it.
