Discerning Cooperatives like El Porvenir cup through every turn-in, evaluating the pickings they receive from their members, rejecting those that don't pass muster, and creating distinct profiles of those approved. The Ayarza Wine Series is a collection of deeply fruited, markedly winey coffees, each processed differently: Washed, honey, and naturally processed. Each of these display intense fruits, slightly fermented character reminiscent of wine, candied sweetness, and depth of body, each through their unique lens.
Cooperativa El Porvenir represents the hard work and dedication of nine producing families and twenty-eight farms in the area surrounding Laguna de Ayarza, in South East Guatemala. Farming families include the Lorenzo, Zapata, Aguirre, Najera, Mendez, Sandoval, Ortega, Martinez, and Barrera families. The average growing altitude in this region is 1800 MASL, and coffees are processed at 1500 MASL. Farmers grow red and yellow Catuaí, Pache, and red and yellow Bourbon. Coffees are dried 5-6 days on the patios, then finished in guardióas. Shade trees in this area include broadleaf and conifers.
