Ciudad Vieja, Antigua (1650m)
Traditionally washed Bourboncito

Don Guayo is a perennial favorite for good reason. A compact selection of the bourbon variety, Bourboncito, proves perfectly suited to the warm sandy slopes of Volcan de Agua. This is where the most focused producer on the volcano draws out perfectly balanced and structured flavors of both orange fruits and chocolates that are secured by the impeccable processing of the Zelcafe team at Bella Vista.

For years, famed Guatemalan producer and exporter, Luis Pedro Zelaya has collected the best bourbon lots from small producers near Antigua to blend into specialty coffees marketed as the indigenous term “Hunapu”. In 2012 before Saint Frank even launched, we asked Luis Pedro to select the first Hunapu producer to be celebrated individually. He knew without question the most consistent individual in both production and quality, Eduardo “Guayo” Gomez, but he is better known by his neighbors and friends as Don Guayo, and for good reason. We’ve been faithfully visiting and partnering with Guayo coffee since that breakthrough and we are thrilled to see the same opportunities open for new Hunapu producers every year.
