Los Suspiros is a brand new coffee for us this year. While cupping through many coffees this March in Guatemala, it really stood out with its syrupy flavor profile and clean finish. The cup is filled with notes of ripe, juicy mango, red cherry and canned peaches, with a crisp finish and hint of florals.
Los Suspiros is the name of the collaboration between two friends, Fredy and Axel, representing 3,200 acres. Fredy and Axel grew up together in Huehuetenengo, playing basketball. While Fredy was away at university, Axel started working his grandfather’s farm. When Fredy returned to work on his father’s farm, they reunited, sharing a vision for producing high-quality, specialty coffee. Axel helps Fredy and his brother with technical forestry support, while Fredy taught Axel how to cup. Axel grows the coffee and picks it, and Fredy and his brother process the cherries.
