Chapter 7

The White Pigeon presents: 

A sweet, fruity aroma hangs in the air: it’s like the smell of ripe apricots. Notes reminiscent of milk chocolate and caramel echo in the background, beckoning you to take another sip… 

This incredibly fragrant coffee hails from the La Hermosa estate in Guatemala: were you to fly over this farm, you would be able to see Max Pérez hard at work, giving his all to managing his coffee plantations. Here, surrounded by glorious volcanoes, nurtured by a unique highland climate and fed by mineral-rich soils, coffee of a truly extraordinary flavour is produced. That’s exactly the kind of estate Max dreamed about when he was a kid, running around coffee plantations stretching right beside his childhood home.

Operation & Care

Where is this coffee roasted?

This coffee is roasted by our partners in Lithuania, in one of the finest local roasteries.

What brewing methods are these coffee beans suited for?

These coffee beans are suited well for all brewing methods, be it espresso, filter, or infusing straight in a cup.

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 coffee variety do these beans belong to?

These are arabica coffee beans of the Caturra, Catuai and Pache subspecies.
