Subtle melon notes evoke the sensation of honeydew. Tied-together with an herbal lemongrass quality and creamy texture, this year’s Pulcal returns to our menu, nearly as elegant as delightful Maria Zelaya herself.

  • Farmlevel Story

    Farmlevel

    After two unsuccessful attempts (on account of earthquakes and floods) at settlement, Spanish conquistadors settled present-day “Antigua” in 1543 which would remain the military epicenter of the Spanish Colony of Guatemala (read: Central America) for the following 200 years.

    Thriving principally on the profits of the coloring material, indigo; coffee wouldn’t gain popularity as a cash crop until the late 1800s when chemical dyes would see to the decline of the indigo industry. Several years later, the familia Zelaya would purchase Hacienda Carmona - formerly occupied by the president of Guatemala - and their small coffee empire would be born.

    Today, coffee from Hacienda Carmona (branded “Cafe Pulcal”) remains overseen by third-generation coffee farmer Maria Zelaya Aguirre and her nephew Luis Pedro Zelaya Zamora. After harvesting, these ripe yellow bourbon cherries are pulped, washed and dried on-site in the shadow of the looming Volcan de Agua.
