Guatemalan Farm Direct Coffee Arrives.

| March 2, 2009

The highly anticipated new crop of CAFFE VITA FARM DIRECT FINCA NUEVO VINAS has just landed here in Seattle. This coffee has been shipped to us directly from our friends in Guatemala, an extremely dedicated 4th generation coffee farm nestled within the lush rainforest/ volcanic region of Santa Rosa, Guatemala. (for an essay about our first trip to this farm – click here)

An exemplary farm of environmental stewardship and sustainability that clearly shows through from seed to cup. In continuing support of CAFFE VITA FARM DIRECT, our friends at FINCA NUEVO VINAS invited us to visit the farm this past January and allowed us the incredible opportunity of experiencing the entire life cycle of this coffee as well as meet the people who work tirelessly throughout the year to bring this exceptional coffee, exclusively to CAFFE VITA here in Seattle. Truly an experience of a lifetime!

This is a 100% certified organic coffee from the first Rainforest Alliance certified http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifcoffee farm in Guatemala. A delicious cup of coffee with enticing aromas of citrus, honey and caramel- balanced with a light medium body, moderate acidity and sweet citrus/honey and floral notes from first sip and lingering throughout the finish.

We look forward to sharing this coffee with you, it is available at all of our retail locations as well as our online store by clicking here…
