This box set of (3) four ounce sample bags makes a great gift for those that want to taste the influence of farm techniques and Guatemalan terroir (the taste of place!) on coffee flavors.
The TerraNegra Box Set represents the hard work of Salvador and Marielisa Melgar, Andres Fahsen and the Rodriguez and Falla families, the Starry family and Jose Montenegro, as well as the coordination and quality control on behalf of TerraNegra Coffee Imports. Co-owned and operated by Ana Cristina Guirola, TerraNegra places equal emphasis on coffee quality and traceability. TerraNegra's dedication to pricing transparency was instrumental in the launching of the Cost of Production Covered (CoPC) Project.
In this box set you'll get to taste a broad spectrum of flavors. This set includes the newest CoPC Project partner, Peña Blanca, coffee from our first CoPC collaborator, Andres Fahsen, and coffee recently introduced to us by Ana Cristina, Lirios de Belén. These three coffees come from very different growing regions (Oriente, Antigua, and Amatitlán, respectively), each with their own elevations, cloud cover patterns, and soil compositions. They are comprised of different coffee plant varieties (Pache, Caturra, Catuai, Pacamara, and Bourbon), each with their own crop performance and flavor nuance. They are also processed using different processing techniques (honey processed for Peña Blanca and washed for the other two coffees). This is the perfect opportunity to take a coffee test drive.
