Origin Information:

Just because you want coffee later in the day, and don't want the caffeine, doesn't mean you have to settle for mediocre coffee. That is why we put together this "half-caff" offering. A combination of two of our Guatemalan single-origin offerings. This blend is the perfect way to enjoy delicious coffee later in the day, and still being able to get to sleep at night :).

Guatemala La Rinconada (Decaf)

The coffee farm El Aguacatal is managed by a father (Petronilo Martinez) and son (Petronilo Jesus) team along the Mexican border. They named their farm after the avocado trees that were planted throughout the plantation.

Their family is big, and most of them are working in coffee at a variety of difference levels.

Guatemala El Tambor

This award winning Palencia farm (ran by Victor Calderon) was founded in 1930 as a cattle ranch and in 1966 was planted with coffee. In 1930 the Franco family bought small farms and formed El Tambor. In 2001, the Calderon family purchased El Tambor, trading it for a house closer to the coast where they had previously farmed. The climate at El Tambor has cold weather overnight from November to March, slowing maturation in the cherries to produce a characteristic sugary sweetness. El Tambor has a distinguished record in the Cup of Excellence, winning awards in 2007, 2015, 2017, and 2018.

The Calderon family uses biodynamic agricultural practices, which Victor just calls "common sense". They use only organic practices, without chemicals, and spread clay to combat rust. The finca is on a migration route for butterflies, which flutter all over the area, the rich canopy of trees on the farm forming a haven for them.
