For decades, Jose Germán Salazar was a journeyman farm worker, but little did he know, the farm would that he would eventually save up to buy would become home to one of the most exciting discoveries in Colombian coffee. Planting a seed he bought from a local grower a few years ago, he noticed the coffee cherries had a slight spicy taste. Experts from an exporting company noticed the flavor in cupping as well, and recently genetic testing by World Coffee Research has revealed that it is a varietal that is totally separate genetically from any of the ancestral seeds brought to the Americas centuries ago, and no one has any idea how it arrived to Colombia from Ethiopia.
La Guaca - Ají is an extremely complex coffee that contains a distinct pepper note, floral, peach and jasmine notes and a macadamia nutty sweetness that makes it among the most exotic we've ever cupped.
