a sweet nutty aroma, a gentle acidity (more malic) balanced by more dominant sweet tones (brown sugar, chocolate, nuts), (red) apple notes, a medium body and a clean long finish.

Fully Washed

Finca Capetillo is located in the Antigua Valley between the Agua, Fuego, and Acatenango volcanoes. Capetillo’s coffee has the Antigua Guatemala denomination of origin and is a member of the Antigua Coffee Producers Association (APCA), which certifies the origin of all the coffee produced within a strictly determined area. The Antigua region has ideal coffee growing conditions. The high altitude, mild temperatures of 20 to 26˚C during the day and 10 to18˚C during the night, perfect rain patterns during the year and rich volcanic soil, provide a unique ecosystem for growing coffee. 

The finca, owned by Pedro Echeverria (6th generation), has its own wet & dry-mill located close to the village of Alotenango. This year we bought a fine ‘Bourbon’ lot from Capetillo that represents the quality coffee they grow and produce year after year.
