Kuma Coffee Story

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!

"honey and apple and pear, oh my! The first sip will have you delving into a caffinated wonderland!"

"I really enjoy a lighter roast and this was PERFECT for me. I'm kind of bummed out that it is sold out! I could definitely taste the sweet fruity flavors! "

"Guatemala is not normally my go to coffee, but I was pleasantly surprised with this roast. It was an easy to drink coffee with a smooth, fruity finish. I especially enjoyed the lower acidity."

"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!"

"I sent this coffee to a friend to have around during my visit. We brewed this coffee in standard electric brewer and it made a delicious cup of coffee. We enjoyed the fruit and honey notes in the profile. This coffee really stands out as something unique. Good hot or iced."

"Great tasting Guatemalan brew. Sweet, nice tasty notes. Prepared as espresso and with chemex "
