Tasting Notes: Red Apple & Milk Chocolate, Buttery
Barrancas comes from San Marcos in Western Guatemala. Literally translated it means "ravines". Small and medium estates around the town of Barrancas Grande produce this coffee. Many of these farms are nestled in the ravines of the mountain side and are only accessible by dirt roads. Barrancas is a washed coffee that underwent a dry fermentation for 18-24 hours before being dried on cement patios for 5 days. It tastes like red fruit, chocolate, almond and citrus. These beautiful, balanced flavors can be attributed to the cool, dry climate of the 1700-1800 MASL that these farms sit at.
