Guatemala - Bosques de San Francisco - Washed
PLUM, CARAMEL, MILK CHOCOLATE
The Dalton family honours its coffee growing heritage - the farm is currently being operated by the 5th and 6th generations. Coffee represents 214.64 hectares of the entire farm. Bosques de San Francisco is a quarter of the original Dalton family farm, originally called Finca Filadelfia.
The coffee from Bosques de San Francisco is picked separately. The farm only grows Bourbon, Caturra, and Pacamara. This is the second harvest of the Pacamara and it has a unique lavender note. The Bourbon & Caturra grow together on the same lots and are picked together.
The original Finca Filadelfia was first coffee farm in Antigua. It was split into 4 unique farms upon the passing of the third generation of the Dalton family.
Like most farms in Guatemala, Finca Filadelfia originally harvested cochineal. In 1864 the farm transitioned to coffee amidst a country wide recession.
Manuel Matheu (Marta’s great great great grandfather) initially borrowed the land, where he planted some coffee in 1864. After his first harvest, he went to London to sell his crop. After returning from London where he achieved great success, he was commissioned by the President of Guatemala to show small farmers how to grow coffee.
Thus the Antigua coffee growing region was born. Eventually, Manuel’s son purchased what is now Finca Filadelfia. Their passion for coffee has been passed down for 6 generations. Marta’s great grandmother Elisa ran the farm until she was 95 years old, and won the first two Cup of Excellence in 2001 and 2002!
