JACQUELINE 89 Coffee Bean

 

THE CROWN OF GUATEMALA

The Ovalle family is one of the most renowned Guatemalan families in the world of speciality coffees, having also won numerous Cup of Excellence® awards. The farm is named Las Terrazas and is currently owned by Renardo Ovalle who represents the 3rd generation of the family. It is located in a lush vegetation with high humidity where it is impossible to produce natural coffees. The plot is unique as it is on calcareous soil and on very high altitude of 1,750 to 2,100 meters. Here cherries are harvested at maturity and then pulped before being placed in fermentation tanks for about 24 – 48 hours (depending on the climate at the time of fermentation). Then the washing and selection process is completed according to the cherries density. Everything is done with precision, only possible by the Ovalle family.

 

A FAMILY OF EXPERTS

Among the various coffees produced by the Ovalle family, the microlot named Jacqueline 89, has a very bright, elegant and complex organoleptic profile. Jacqueline, Renardo’s wife, uses her discerning palate and Q Grader training to help define the profiles and characteristics of each of the farm’s coffees and she marked this San Ramon and Pacas microlot 89, hence its name

 

THE UNICORN IN COFFEE

JACQUELINE 89 is a coffee that gives many surprises with its peculiar profiles, coming from the limescale soil it is grown on, and on very high altitude. It’s the Picasso of coffee, uniquely indifferent, yet in a pleasant way that provokes thoughts that dwell deep. Able to achieve above 85 points by professional Q graders. It’s a coffee that gets sought after and sold out before it has a chance to be discovered by many.

 

BEST WAY TO HAVE IT

Roasted for espresso and unblended, this coffee develops a clear, elegant and complex organoleptic profile. A perfect union between aromas of sweet fruits, with a clean, vibrant and bright character. Sweetness is highly perceivable throughout the entire cupping session.
