Our current seasonal blend is a mix of 50% Hhehuetenango Smallholders from Guatemala and 50% Puente Tarrazu from Costa Rica, forecast to last until January.

From the Smallholders, we get a soft fruit sweetness and cacao notes with an almond finish, whereas the Puente Tarrazu brings plenty of crisp red apples and a pleasing citrusy marmalade feel to the cup.
