La Providencia Bourbon

Mr. Javier Palacios purchased La Providencia Estate in the year 1954 and only yielded approximately 1,500 pounds of coffee cherry.  His vision was to cultivate exceptional quality coffee by taking very good care of both natural resources and human capital. He knew those two factors were essential to achieve exceptional quality coffee. Passed down through 3 generations, La Providencia is now managed and run by Mr. Max Ariel Palacios Villatoro, a friend and expert agriculturist who has been working on the farm for over 40 years and maintains its family’s primary vision on their nearly 180 hectares of coffee producing lands.

This is a 100% Bourbon cultivar lot, grown at 1,800 meters above sea level.  The cup exhibits lots of maple sweetness, notes of chocolate and nougat and a buttery mouthfeel—this coffee is representative of the best coffees from Huehuetenango.
