Carlos Sabala has been a member of the Asociación de Productores de Café de Atitlán (APROCAFE Atitlán) since its formation in 2014. His farm sits at 1575-1650 meters above sea level in the village (aldea) of Pasajquim.

While Pasajquim is part of the larger Lake Atitlán region and part of the town of San Juan, it is much closer to the lake as the crow flies than by car. Pasajquim sits on the far side of a ridgeline from the lake’s southwest shore, about 1.5 hour from the town center of San Juan in car or pickup.

Carlos’ home and wet mill sits at the very end of the road to Pasajquim, and his parcel of coffee growing land sits slightly further down the footpath that continues where the road ends. He grows a mix of Caturra, Catuaí, and Pache, and after depulping, he dry ferments his coffee for 12-24 hours, washes, and dries on patio. Carlos has limited patio space, and also has an old, wood-fired mechanical dryer that he uses only for floaters and early crop coffees not destined for specialty.

Notes: Spiced cocoa, vanilla, creamy
