Guatemala - El Tambor

$16.00
In Stock

If you are looking for a coffee that is comfortable and sweet, you've got to try this one. It's a medium roast from Guatemala with a delicate balance of chocolatey flavors, red apple, apricot and walnut. It is great for espresso and pour-over/filter. 

 

This coffee comes from a lot in the Palencia region in Guatemala. A lot that brings together 15 producers.

Many decades ago, farming families on this land heard a huge thumping sound underground, but only in the rainy season. It was attributed to a large underground waterfall, but the sound has not been heard since WWII. This is where the name El Tambor, or 'The Drum', comes from.

This award winning Palencia farm was founded in 1930 as a cattle ranch and in 1966 was planted with coffee. In 2001, the Calderon family purchased El Tambor. El Tambor has a distinguished record in the Cup of Excellence, winning awards in 2007, 2015, 2017, and 2018.

The Calderon family uses biodynamic agricultural practices, which Victor just calls "common sense". They use only organic practices, without chemicals, and spread clay to combat rust. The finca is on a migration route for butterflies, which flutter all over the area, the rich canopy of trees on the farm forming a haven for them.

LITTLE FACT

They burst onto the scene in 2020 when they took home first place in both the Canadian AeroPress Competition and Canadian Brewers Cup competition. They represented Canada at the World Brewers championship the following year.

Our mission

We're on a mission to bridge the gap between a better cup of coffee and tea at home and the local craftspeople who are passionate about producing it.

We want to connect the Edmonton coffee lovers with Edmonton. There are so many great cafes, small batch roasters, and hidden treasures within our city that are waiting to be discovered.

Support Local

Early on our journey, we found out that more than 80% of coffee and tea purchased locally isn't actually local.

Wouldn't it be amazing if 80% of the tea and coffee purchased in Edmonton was local? And, the 20% that came from elsewhere was the very best the world had to offer?
