Behind the cup

Another fan favorite from Antigua, Guatemala, this year’s Pulcal encompasses all of the delicate and exciting flavors we love about Guatemalan coffee. We recommend this coffee for anyone who loves other Guatemalan favorites, such as Santa Clara or Hunapu. Juicy and dense like a fresh plum, this year’s Pulcal reminds us why we have it on our menu year after year. With deep notes of ripe fig and cola, this coffee is a well-rounded crowd pleaser.

FARMLEVEL STORY

Third-generation coffee farmer Maria Zelaya Aguirre, along with the help of her nephew Luis Pedro Zelaya Zamora, own and oversee their farm, Hacienda Carmona. Filled with historical significance, Doña Maria carefully and intentionally looks over Hacienda Carmona. Her attention to detail and love for her land extends beyond coffee. She keeps heirloom rose varieties from Paris in her garden that sits just below the terrace of the beautiful farmhouse, once occupied by the President of Guatemala. Inside its walls hang pictures of the men and women who have run the outstanding grounds and transformed it into one of the most prolific farms in Antigua. 

Through the rows of Typica and Caturra trees, you’ll eventually come to a group of rows that are Bourbon. These trees have lived beautifully, producing coffees of microlot quality for many years. Much like the aromatics of those Parisian roses, the each of these coffee’s flavor profile is infectious.
