A honey of a roast, with all the sweet, sparkling personality you’d expect from Kuma. Harvested only a few months ago, this is an exceptionally fresh coffee at the very peak of its flavor. Enjoy!
Our second 2017 fresh crop Guatemala microlot comes from the multiple award-winning classic estate, Finca Retana. It grows it's coffee separated by varietal, some of the most delicious being the red and yellow bourbon. When we visited the estate this spring, harvest was in full swing and we were able to walk through the shaded shrub rows tasting and comparing coffee cherries from each variety. The yellow bourbon cherries were so much sweeter than the others, we could hardly believe it. We are privileged to bring you this 100% yellow bourbon microlot from producer Fernando Cofiño and being milled through Zelcafe. Retana is a perennial Cup of Excellence winner!

"This is our first bean box and this was by far the standout! I'm usually just an AM coffee drinker with the occasional cup midday--This was the perfect blend of being sweet, non-acidic,and still packing a punch! It's also one of the lightest brews I've ever seen, which was great! Highly recommend!" (5 out of 5)
