Ten varieties, cultivated under identical conditions and roasted to the same end-degree. We have narrowed it down to one variable, allowing you to savour the taste of each variety.
For the third year in a row, we are proud to present you with a new curation from the Variety Garden: an exclusive selection of single varieties, carefully chosen to captivate the many layers of coffee.
The Variety Garden is an experimental project aimed at exploring more single varieties than are typically found in Guatemala. Producer at Vista Hermosa, Edwin Martinez Sr., and farm manager Eliseo wanted to observe how each variety would perform in their specific microclimate, examining factors such as cup quality, yield, resistance to pests, leaf rust, and resilience to weather conditions.

The Variety Garden comprises 19 different varieties, grown at an elevation of approximately 1,700 meters above sea level. We have selected the ten most interesting lots for the Variety Garden Pack, providing you with a chance to taste and compare their distinct flavours.
This year we have selected the following varieties: Geisha, Maragopache, Maragogype, Pacamara, Pache, Sarchimor, San Ramon, Bourbon, Typica, and Anacafe 14.
Each jar of roasted beans (45 g) contains enough to do a cupping of all the varieties next to each other plus half a litre to simply enjoy.
Set up your own cupping
You will need 11,5 grams of coffee ground on a setting similar for Kalita. Pour in 190 grams of water and let it steep for four minutes before breaking the crust!
