Coffees from Antigua are perfect daily drinkers. This particular lot from Felicidad is full of rich and complex baking spice and fig qualities over a base of cocoa and toasted nuts.
Owned by Elena Aguirre de Asensio, the coffee cherries grown on Felicidad are processed at the Bella Vista mill which is owned and operated by Luis Pedro Zelaya. This was a challenging year in Antigua, with many farms badly affected by a frost that formed early in the morning on January 24th. Coffee cannot tolerate frost and nearly 50% of Felicidad’s crop was lost. This particular lot was harvested before the devastating frost, but the ongoing effects of the frost will be felt in and around Antigua for a number of years to come.
