La Revuelta

Tasting Notes: Sweet, jammy & boozy

Last year we tasted and fell in love with this coffee from Christian Starry’s Finca La Revuelta, Guatemala.

We decided it should take the starring role in our festive blend, ‘Champagne’.

This was a real hit and enabled us to raise over £1,700 for Riding for the Disabled by donating proceeds from the Horsebox, our wholesale stockists and of course our online shop.

We have a couple of sacks left over so here it is for you to enjoy again, pure and simple!

  • Location

    Finca La Revuelta is located at an altitude of 1480-1580m in Amatitlan, southern Guatemala, overlooking the great lake Amatitlan. The soil is rich and volcanic and its climate is perfect for high quality coffee cultivation.

    Coffee production takes place over a 50Ha area, with a harvest period of January - March.

  • Farm / Co-op

    The farm is run by Christian Starry Snr. with his son Christian Starry Jnr. (pictured), who looks after the processing and export.

    Christian and his friend Mario Alarcon also set up the 'Guat lab' and 'Truth Trading Company', working side by side with other growers in all parts of Guatemala to help them process and market their coffees. Unlike most exporters, they work as service providers providing 100% price transparency to their partners.

  • Processing

    Red and yellow bourbon varietals are grown and hand picked when ripe. The 'natural' or 'dry' process used here means coffee cherries are laid out on drying patios, carefully monitored, sorted and turned, until the skin and flesh become brittle and can easily be removed by a mechanical hulling machine. This process results in some super jammy and boozy flavours.
