These deliciously smooth beans hail from the Huehuetenango region of Guatemala in a valley surrounded by the beautiful Sierra Madre mountains. The location is not only ridiculously picturesque, but is also a prime location for growing the tastiest of tasty coffee beans.
The Jacaltenango beans are somewhat of a rarity in the region, presenting with flavors of both chocolate and deliciously juicy red and dark fruits. As the coffee cools, you'll notice the deep red and dark fruit flavors shine through, finishing with a lingering flavor of expensive dark chocolate. The rich and silky mouthfeel this coffee provides mirrors the chocolate on the palate.
About the company
The brewery was founded by the guy writing this (Jacob McKean), a beer geek, former Stone Brewing Co. employee and long-time homebrewer, along with crack team of consultants consisting of illustrious graphic designers, vicious attorneys, a slightly unhinged kombucha-obsessed real estate agent, one faraway brewing prodigy, a pricey architect, a gregarious general contractor, and (a bit later in the process) three outstanding brewers.
Today, we're distributed throughout Southern California and have a fully awesome tasting room at our brewery. You should totally come check it out.
We brewed our first batch on May 18th, 2013; our beer went on tap for the first time on June 24th 2013; and we held the soft opening for the Lomaland Fermentorium tasting room on August 9th, 2013; and our Grand Opening was September 7th, 2013.
