GUATEMALA El Tambor
This delicious coffee comes from Finca El Tambor in Guatemala. Owner Victor Calderon is a 5th generation coffee producer. The Farm name, El Tambor translates to "The Drum" in Spanish which refers to the sound underground water that surged through the land in the years past.
This award winning Palencia farm was founded in 1930 as a cattle ranch and in 1966 was planted with coffee. In 1930 the Franco family bought small farms and formed El Tambor. In 2001, the Calderon family purchased El Tambor, trading it for a house closer to the coast where they had previously farmed. The climate at El Tambor has cold weather overnight from November to March, slowing maturation in the cherries to produce a characteristic sugary sweetness. El Tambor has a distinguished record in the Cup of Excellence, winning awards in 2007, 2015, 2017, and 2018.
