Wicho’s coffee has a very unique flavor profile for Guatemala. In part this is due to the unusual microclimate of Santa Isabel, it experiences long periods of high humidity due to the rainforests that surround it, and due to the care Wicho gives to his plants.
Wicho is known to spend a lot of the day outside on the farm which he call his “outside office”! The result of all this is a clean and crisp coffee, with distinct floral notes, particularly of jasmine. It is a rare and exotic coffee, straight from the rainforests of Guatemala.
