Finca Santa Margarita is the family farm of Camila Topke, one of our trading partners and a member of the International Women’s Coffee Alliance. In May, I visited Guatemala and learned firsthand the challenges Guatemalan producers are experiencing. Founded in 1838 by Camila’s great grandfather, Thomas Wyld, Santa Margarita is now 2,320 hectares––812 of which are coffee farms with Caturra, Sarchimor, Catimor, and Geisha varieties.

Santa Margarita is committed to serving the community and environmental sustainability––the surrounding natural forest and wildlife are preserved. The farm houses an elementary school for children, a church, and a health clinic on-site. The majority of the farm’s operators are women––from coffee pickers to running the grafting program, school, and health clinic.

Cupping notes: Milk chocolate, light citrus, caramel, brown sugar, honey; bright acidity.

Roasted past FC a darker medium roast, just before SC. There is a bitterness similar to Starbucks Pikes Place. I enjoy Starbucks Pikes Place and this is a good clone.

Usually a sumatra lover but like to try new beans, this fit the profile so we tried it. Roasted to the start of the second crack and really like it. Might just replace the sumatra in the roaster permantly. This is the only coffee roaster that will ship to alaska at a decent price, they have my business from now on.

I just started purchasing coffee from CBC and I love everything about them so far. They are a quality supplier and run a quality business. I have roasted 6 of their coffees and this is my favorite thus far. I roasted it about 30 seconds past the end of the 1st crack and the flavor is everything that they said it was supposed to be. I love CBC and their coffees!

Just roasted up a batch of this coffee. Definitely one of my favs so far. I'm a newbie roaster and have tried about 15 different beans. This one is very good! Roasted it to a nice medium/dark past first crack. Let the beans rest for two days. It's a lovely cup! Chocolatey, fruity, with a lemon kicker. I really like this bean!

Best deals. Fast shipping. Great Selection of beans. Great descriptions in the Coffee metrics really narrows each buddies likeness or preferences. I live three hours from another major Coffee bean distributor but I order from coffee Bean corral I like their service and their selection and I can always find deals another words I save money buying beans from somebody across the country.
