The history of the San Carlos lot dates back to the 1800’s, when don Carlos Durán began his operation. San Carlos is now owned by his daughters, Ana Maria and Estela Durán, who manage three farms in the Antigua region of Guatemala. Ana and Estela entrust Jorge Alberto Zamora, who was born on the Villa Estela farm, to oversee the operation of all three farms. His father was the administer of the farms for 65 years prior to Jorge taking over, who has now been in charge of operations for 50 years.
For the past 70 to 80 years, the main varietal grown on each farm has been Borbón. The rest is divided among 40 year old Catuaí and Caturra. Trees are kept in a high shade environment and treated like a forest. Shade is shared between gravilea and orange trees.

First of all, it's the freshest coffee I have tasted yet. It smells so nice but tastes sour. I don't know whether the coffee baked enough or actually it is. If u want to try, it will be deserved to have the chance.

Coffee beans are good and enjoy my espressos. The longish shipping time - not so good!
Is it bad when I run out that I start to Crave Transcend

I was introduced to you espresso from a wonderful flower customer of our store. I started enjoying a cup when I am designing our signature floral art for our flowershop. It inspires me and I can honestly tell you that it is soothing to sip away and create....thank you
