El Limon Washed
This week on our Passenger Subscription is a classic from Guatemala - El Limon Washed. With aromas of sweet caramel and amaretto, and washed notes of fresh orange, juicy white peach, and rich bakers chocolate, it's easy to see why El Limon Washed is so popular! This farm is one of three that form San Patricio Estate. Owned and operated by Guadalupe Alberto ‘Beto’ Reyes and the Reyes family, we've got a loyal relationship and friendship with the team.

The more established Finca El Limon is definitely the ‘jewel in the crown’. Purchased by the family 22 years ago, along with renovating older areas of coffee they began terracing and new planting coffee 9 years ago. El Limon features established shade cover trees, high altitude and excellent aspect to the sun, resulting in the long maturing of coffee, high levels of sugar and consistent levels of coffee production.
