Fundamental Coffee Company’s newest decadence, Guatemala Puerto Verde, is death by chocolate. Deep, rich, and smooth, this medium-dark roast is like a bar of the very finest extra-dark chocolate. An elegant touch of brown sugar balances the richness of the body, and a hint of orange blossom adds a pleasantly aromatic top note. For us, it was love at first sip: a fantastic example of a darker roast profile that elevates, rather than obscures, a fine coffee’s exceptional nature.
Puerto Verde farm is owned and operated by Roberto Zelaya, a renowned name in Guatemalan specialty coffee. Scott, Fundamental’s owner and roaster, has known Roberto Zelaya and his daughter for over twenty years. Operating since the 90s, the Zelaya farms set the local standard for environmental sustainability and progressive working conditions. This cup is “Bourboncito”, a rare and newish varietal, only grown on a small section of the farm. Bourboncito, or Dwarf Bourbon, is a smaller, lower-yield mutation of Bourbon; like the prized Gesha varietal, these plants produce fewer, richer beans with amazingly clean, vibrant flavors. Here at Bean Box, we’ve never carried a Bourboncito coffee before… but judging by this roast, it definitely won’t be our last.
Fundamental Coffee Company’s Guatemala Puerto Verde is a dream for specialty coffee lovers and chocoholics alike. Exceptionally rich, clean, and smooth, this rare medium-dark roast from one of Guatemala’s top producers is not to be missed. Reserve your bag today, and enjoy this cup of death by chocolate-- and life by coffee!
Available in 12oz bags, whole bean or freshly ground, while supplies last. Limit 3 per customer.
