This particular lot of Gesha is undoubtably an outstanding coffee. Not only does it fit the profile perfectly for our preference of clean and floral washed Gesha, but it also performed incredibly well during the most recent Guatemalan Cup of Excellence competition, placing 1st with a cup score of 91.13 overall. This is the third season that we are working with coffee from El Socorro and we are very excited to welcome the team into the april Partner Farmer family. El Socorro is a farm known for its consistent quality and exceptional stability, placing highly over consecutive years in the Guatemalan Cup of Excellence competitions. Diego is a third generation farmer, having held the reigns at the farm for last 15 years, during which the number of varietals on offer have increased and the production methods have become more consistent and unique. El Socorro produce fantastically clean washed processed coffees, utilising hot water following the milling process to accelerate the fermentation. Diego believes that reducing the fermentation time maintains the optimal density of the bean leading to a greater cup quality. This is the second year that we are working with coffee from El Socorro and we are very excited to welcome the team into the april Partner Farmer family.
