Description: Guatemala Huehuetenango Finca La Providencia Palhu is sourced from Finca La Providencia located in the municipality of San Pedro Necta, within the department of Huehuetenango, Guatemala. La Providencia is owned and operated by Maximiliano Palacios (Max), a third generation coffee farmer. The name of the coffee, Palhu, is formed from a combination of the family name Palacios and the department of Huehuetenango. The heart of La Providencia is a beautifully maintained mill that begins at a highpoint on the sloped property, designed to take full advantage of gravity, where the ripe cherries are placed in water and carried through the depulping process on a series of intricate canals to the drying patios below. This coffee produces an incredibly complex, yet easy drinking, cup. On the front end, you will immediately pick up on subtle notes of white peach and watermelon sweetness. It has a soft and clean medium body with a note of candied walnut, and is accompanied by a creamy mouthfeel like Italian sweet cream. This cup finishes extremely smooth and clean, with a strong note of milk chocolate, while the stone fruit notes linger on the palate.
Shelf Life: An unopened bag will remain tasty for five months due to our processes and packaging. We remove most of the oxygen from each bag during our packaging process and replace it with food-grade nitrogen to lovingly cradle these precious beans for a long time. We use the highest quality bags with one-way valves to retain the low-oxygen environment we create and allow our coffee to off-gas naturally.
