Guatemala CoE: Lot#: 8 Martinez Pineda, Edwin - Vista Hermosa

Our friends at Finca Vista Hermosa scored an 8th place finish at this years Cup of Excellence auction netting $8.05/lb for green coffee. A big congratulations goes out to them and hopes for continued success going forward.

I just called Eddie to congratulate him and look forward to how they will advance after this big step in justifying their green quality. I was lucky enough to visit the Martinez family during this years harvest as part of the barista origin trip.

Rumor has it, a gutsy Barista will take some FVH to the competitions. We commend this brave soul as long as a bag gets sent our way to taste!
