This multiple award winning coffee is grown in the micro region of Hoja Blanca (White Flower), Huehuetenango by Juan Villatoro and his family. The area is absolutely ideal for growing Red Bourbon cultivars where the coffee receives the perfect balance of sun, shade and rainfall at the perfect elevation and grown in incredibly rich soil conditions Juan and his family have been producing quality coffees for over three generations and in fact, are one of very few lineages to achieve a top ten cup of excellence award at over 75% of the competitions held in Guatemala. This coffee is Juan and his son's "special micro lot" and represented the best Guatemalan coffee we tasted in 2018.
Our Guatemala Milagro El Crucero has now won a total of 4 medals at the Golden Bean: North America Roasting Championships (2018 & 2019)
