GUATEMALA • PABLO BAMACA
Pablo Bamaca stays busy working as a schoolteacher, apiarist and coffee producer at his beautiful Finca Nohellia Farm. It is in the high reaches of Aldea Poj, sitting against a towering mountain range, which helps foster his 1.68 acres of bourbon and caturra plants. I first heard about Pablo’s coffee when it was featured in the 2021 World AeroPress Championship and I am super excited to add it to the Quietly menu.
Over the last couple of harvests, San Marcos lots have been dependably balanced and delicious, which Pablo’s coffee certainly delivers. It opens with a nice juicy hit of blueberry acidity that moves towards the refreshing flavours of green grape. The cup ends with a sugary array of caramel, pecan pie, honey, and luscious table cream.
