Nueva Armenia is farm located in La Libertad, Huehuetenango, close to the Mexican border. The name was inspired in Armenia, Colombia, after the founder did a coffee tour around Armenia back in the 30’s. Nueva Armenia was founded in 1935 when getting to that area was very difficult, where coffee was transported by mules.

 

Currently is managed by twins Jorge & Javier, regarded highly by coffee professionals all over the world, having won a number of international coffee tasting contests and has also become one of the first certified Organic farms in Guatemala. Nueva Armenia is today a fully organic farm certified by OCIA, it is also Smithsonian Bird Friendly certified.

 

They focus on producing the highest scoring coffees utilising the most biodiverse and environmentally friendly methods. Due to their hard work and meticulous selection process they have managed to become one of the most recognised farms in Guatemala.

 

The cherries for this particular lot were picked slightly after their maturation peak to help give them more pronounced flavour and greater sweetness.

 

After de-pulping and separation, the beans were dry-fermented for approximately 32 hours and washed in a steep 200 m long washing channel. Cleaned of their parchment the beans are then dried over 11 days on raised beds.
