With tasting notes of cacao and black currant, this structured yet light coffee from Guatemala balances the acidity of ripe cranberries. Santa Clara has all of the components that we love about Guatemalan coffee and is sure to be a hit for fans of previous years’ La Bolsa and Aragon.

  • Story

    Seated at the base of Volcan Agua, one of Antigua's three active volcanoes, lies the glorious Finca Santa Clara. Upon entering the gates to the farm, one is immediately met with rows and rows of coffee shrubs, ranging from Bourbon and Bourboncito (dwarf bourbon) to experimental varieties Ricardo Zelaya and his daughter Katia have planted.

    Upon harvesting, pickers deliver ripe cherries to Santa Clara's wet mill, situated at the farm’s base, where coffee is pulped, soaked, and dried on raised beds. After complete drying, coffee proceeds to dry-milling and Santa Clara’s brand new state-of-the-art dry-mill.

    For four generations, the Zelaya family has owned and operated Finca Santa Clara, Bella Vista, and nearby Hacienda Carmona. These three Antiguan staples will remain forever linked not only by ancestral ties but also by the impeccable quality at the core of what they do.

Love Santa Clara!

This is my favorite Verve coffee at the moment. It hits all the right notes with that awesome Verve signature coffee bean roasting.
