Origins: Guatemala — Antigua

Washed Process — Bourbon

Nueva Esperanza is a mill and farm in Antigua that has recently been rejuvenated with new coffee varieties and better processing practices. Nueva Esperanza is a leader in innovation in both growing and processing, and this washed process Bourbon variety is a prime example of a finely nuanced coffee. We relish coffee like this- approachable, soft and delicate but still complex and interesting.

Washed Process, or “wet” process, is used all over the world in many different variations. Typically, the skin of the coffee cherry is removed and the beans are left with some fruit mucilage stuck to them. The beans go through a mild fermentation to break down the sugars and loosen the fruit from the beans, and are then rinsed and dried. Washed process coffees tend to have clean, clear flavors and a brighter acidity.

Bourbon is named after the island where it was discovered which is now called Reunion Island. It is one of two main cultivars of Arabica and is known for high quality and low to moderate production yields.
