Let me stop you right there: you won’t find any guavas or bananas in this coffee! However, this coffee was named for the guava and banana trees surrounding this coffee lot in Vergel Estate.
Elias and Shady Bayter operate this farm located on the slopes of the snowy mountains of El Ruiz, an inactive volcano that has created some of the most nutrient rich soil for planting. Covering almost 300 hectares, El Vergel is one of the oldest traditional single estates of the region. This coffee was processed through an anaerobic controlled temperature fermentation for 48 to 60 hours.
