Orlando Lemus Filter$23 per 250g
The Olopa municipality, a small but spectacular region within the Chiquimula Department in Guatemala’s eastern highlands, is known for its production of stunning specialty coffees. This is evident in the coffee that Orlando Lemus’ family have cultivated for over three generations at Finca Liquidambar.
Named for the native liquidambar (sweetgum) trees that provide shade, the farm sits at altitudes of up to 1530 masl. Orlando grows Yellow Catuai, Pacamara, Bourbon and Caturra varieties, under the shade of banana and native trees. For Orlando, the harvesting of coffee year after year, is more than just a business, it is his passion and way of life.
