This is the first Guatemalan coffee we've bought as Recluse. Very excited to share this super versatile coffee sourced through Caravela.
La Cometa was grown between 1,500 and 1,900 meters above sea level in Sacatepequez, Guatemala. The producers who contribute to La Cometa are fortunate to live on the skirts of the three beautiful and active Volcanos; Volcán del Agua, de Fuego, and Acatenango. Due to the volcanic activity and the warm climate these producers have land rich in nutrients and conditions which result in a sweet profile that reminds us of cola.
The producers that work here are motivated and passionate to produce high quality coffees as they have recognized the connection between hard work, quality, and income. The premiums these producers earn through farming specialty coffee is life altering and has already enabled them to improve harvest after harvest.
