Asamblea is a specifc lot of coffee grown at finca Isnul in Hueheutenango (Northern Guatemala).  It is owned by the Perez family, a long standing grower in the region.  Together, the whole family accounts for thousands of pounds of coffee produced across 4 or 5 farms owned by various cousins, uncles and sons.  Together, they have banded to create their own mill and label which is known as Family Bonds Coffee!

The altitude of the farm is between 1600 and 2000 meters above sea level and the terroir is comprised of rolling hills, rocks and a mix of indigenous hard wood shade trees.

The coffee itself is characterized primarily by a deep luscious blackberry sweetness and transparent and delicate acidity that creates a balance of flavors that titillate the taste buds but do not overwhelm them.  It  is equally fantastic as espresso or filter coffee and is used regularly for both at our espresso bar in Bishop.

In the cup, you will find complex notes of cocoa nibs, blackberry, jam, plum, orange, clarity and balance.  This is a classic Huehuetenago cup profile with bright flavor notes up front and a firm structured balance of chocolate in the finish.  It shows well across the brew method spectrum, however, our preference is still pour over!
