Coto: El Mirador – Guatemala


Geshas have a unique profile depending on if the seeds come from Ethiopia or Panama.  Coto’s farm features Gesha from the motherland of coffee: Ethiopia.

Coto: El Mirador features notes of bergamot (earl grey) and jasmine.  Pineapple acidity, huckleberry sweetness, slightly herbaceous, and a finish of fig newtons.  Delicate and complex.

The Bagstory:
This is our second year working with Stuardo Coto. He is a man, a myth, a legend. This Gesha is a true testament of his character. When he first decided to grow this impossibly beautiful variety on his farm, we waited three years for harvest to peak. Individually and meticulously he tasted the coffee from each tree to see which plant was producing the perfect cup of coffee. Once he accomplished this, he destroyed his entire microlot, only to rebuild it with coffee seeds from the very best plants. The coffee you are now tasting is a ten year work of a labor — a romance, commitment, and love that is no longer present in the year of 2018.  Every seed roasted from this small selection is a beautiful story of sweat and grit, one in which we are honored to take part. Hold up your glasses — this one is for you, Don Coto.
