The Guatemalan coffee is from the Santa Clara farm, owned by four generations of the Zelaya family. The family has an incredibly meticulous approach to processing their coffee and the results really shine in the cup. The coffee tasted of chocolate, cherry and most notably, orange-lime sherbet that lingered on the tongue. Although acidic, it was very sweet with no noticeable bitterness.
This week’s meeting will not occur during our regular Friday afternoon hours, but instead will take place in the New Hamp lounge on Sunday, May 18 from 2-4 pm so that everyone can enjoy the Green Key festivities, and also have a little Sunday afternoon pick-me-up. We will be serving Kenya Thurungi from Portland-based Coava Coffee and Nicaragua Honeyed Maracaturra from Café Integral in New York City. In addition, we will be featuring a variety of single-origin chocolate from Mast Brothers and Café Integral that we hope will pair well with the coffee. We wish you a happy Green Key and hope to see you all on Sunday!
