Medium - Roasted to create balance, in between first and second crack with a longer duration to increase body and complexity
Smooth and very balanced this Guatemala has a mellow flavour of caramel and chocolate with a lingering peanut finish. The acidity is subtle and fresh with green apple showing.
Aurelio grew up on his father’s farm, Finca La Esperanza (who's coffee we featured earlier in the year - El Patio). After a year out in Hoja Blanca, Aurelio returned to his home at Finca La Esperanza. His ultimate goal was to join the family business and in 1986, purchased his own farm. He called it Villaure which is a combination of his first and last names ‘Vill’, from Villatoro and ‘Aure’ from Aurelio. Since day one, he
worked hard and dedicated his time to producing high quality coffee. All his efforts have not gone unnoticed as he has been awarded many national and international awards for his coffee.
Villaure has competed in four Cup of Excellence competitions and also been awarded by Illy the Best Farmer in Guatemala and Best Farmer in Huehuetenango.
