Background:

This coffee has quite an interesting taste, the spice and pear are something different to what you'd expect 100% bourbon lots to be but it works well.

Finca San Gerado is a 70 hectare, family owned coffee farm near lake Amatitlán, one of Guatemala's largest lakes.

The owners, the Starry family, have grown various commercial crops here since the late 1800's. Nowadays they just commercially grow coffee, specifically shade grown bourbon and typica varieties and fully wash their harvests and dry on raised beds or patios.

This farms' quality comes down to checking sugar content daily in the January to March harvest period, only picking cherries when ripest, the volcanic soil it's grown on and having consistent weather and rain due to the large body of water nearby. They also weed by hand and use holistic methods of pest control for borer beetles.
