Victor Calderon purchased Finca El Tambor in a severe state of disrepair, with poorly maintained biomass and regular soil abuse due to invasive mining practices. After wrestling ownership of the land away from the mine, Victor has rehabilitated the former mining areas and is producing some of the most consistent crops we've tasted from all of Guatemala. For the third year running, we're proud to present Finca El Tambor ("The Drum") as our in-house espresso. This coffee is very balanced, offering up sweetness, acidity, and floral characteristics in equal measure.
