Coffee has been grown and processed on Capetillo since the 1880s. The first shipmentof Capetillo to London was a small lot of thirty bags in 1889 (not to us). Originally,the farm was a sugar plantation, but slowly over almost one hundred years it wasconverted to a coffee estate. The waterwheels, which powered the sugar mill, were builtin Glasgow by Mirrlees & Tait in 1865 and are still in place and functional. The farmis currently modernising the system to provide more sustainable power for the coffeemill. The farm lies between the Acatenango and Agua volcanoes at an average of 1500meters which is a bit too high for extensive sugar production but great for growingexceptional coffee. Capetillo have a variety of cultivars growing on the farm includingPache, Bourbon, Caturra, and Pacamara. We chose this small lot of Pacamara, processednaturally, earlier in the year. The plot where it was planted in 2014 used to be a limeand lemon grove and is known on the farm as Limonares. The cherry is harvested at itspeak maturity and laid out on patios to be dried for approximately twenty days, thenit is rested in silos to stabilise the humidity for three months before being processedfor shipping. This coffee from Capetillo has a very different flavour from the largershipments we often have on the counter and in our espresso, and is a great opportunityto taste the impact of cultivar and process. The combination of Pacamara and thenatural process gives this coffee particularly funky and dried fruit characteristics.Later in the year we will have a shipment that is a mix of Bourbon, Caturra and Pachecultivars, all processed using the traditional washed method.
