Details

The winner of the prestigious “Cup of Excellence” award, this fruity, berryish, sweet coffee is sure to be appreciated by true coffee connoisseurs! The luxurious arabica Geisha variety will indulge your palate and excite your imagination: first, you’ll taste the dominant notes of cherries, red currants and pomegranates, then the flavours will morph, gradually revealing the sweetness of peaches, pears and apricot jam. Once a cup of this gourmet drink is finished, its vivid memory will linger on your palate for quite some time, leaving a pleasantly sweet and fruity aftertaste.

The history of the El Socorro farm dates back to the 19th century, when Antonio López Colom started working there. Many years later, one of Antonio’s descendants, Maria Colom, together with her husband Mario De La Cerda, purchased a large farm composed of three separate properties: El Socorro, San Guayabá and Rio Arriba. Today, their son and grandson continue the couple’s work on the very same land. Now into its fourth generation, this family farm is located at a particularly high altitude, which is what endows the coffee that grows there with its exceptional quality and award-winning taste. 

For over 20 years, the “Cup of Excellence” (COE) competition has been pioneering integrity and transparency in the coffee industry. The level of scrutiny that COE coffees undergo is truly unmatched anywhere else. This means that the quality of these coffees also has no equals.

The supply of “Guatemala El Socorro” is extremely low, so it belongs to the Limited Edition line.

Due to its exceptional quality and taste, this coffee is marked as Specialty. According to the SCA grading system, it scores 90.1 points out of 100.

Operation & Care

Where is this coffee roasted?

What's the difference between specialty coffee beans and regular ones?

Specialty coffee includes only the world’s best-rated varieties. Who rates it and how do they do that, you wonder? Well, the rating is in the hands of certified coffee tasters. They evaluate the quality of the coffee they’re presented with based on the scale created by the Specialty Coffee Association (SCA). Four criteria are assessed: origin, the appearance of green beans, the aroma of the prepared brew, and its flavour characteristics. Only coffees that end up scoring somewhere between 80 and 100 points can be rightfully referred to as “specialty”.

How does the washed processing method affect the flavour of coffee?

When using the washed process, beans are first separated from the cherries, then fermented and dried. Coffee processed in this manner acquires a particularly “clean” taste, which makes the dominant notes easier to identify. It’s often fruitier too.

What brewing methods are these coffee beans suited for?

These coffee beans are suited well for all manual brewing methods, such as V60, Chemex and the like.

Why is this coffee so expensive?

This is a limited-edition coffee that boasts the prestigious “Cup of Excellence” (COE) award. What this means is that the quality of these beans has been approved by some of the world’s best coffee experts. Because the supply of this coffee is low and its characteristics are absolutely unique, its price is larger than that of most other varieties.
