For the second washed coffee that GWGC have bought from Aracelly, prepare to be blown away by just how juicy and round she is, baby!
And, as promised, here is Part 2 of her story as written by Lindsay Coe:
The youngest of six siblings (all of whom are still local) Doña Ara’s childhood memories revolve around coffee. She fondly recalls the way her beloved late mother drank coffee throughout the entire 24-hour day and still keeps her father’s hand-crafted burlap coffee sacks as keepsakes in her kitchen. She also takes great pride in her share of her mother’s coffee farm, which was divided into plots between Doña Ara and her siblings after their mother passed away. It was Doña Ara that adopted her mother’s matriarchal role, however. Today, she cooks every meal for her elder brother and treats the rest of her very large family to endless homemade empanadas and agua dulce. Her tiny house overflows with love for her family, young and old.

This coffee is sooo user friendly it was hard to settle on a 'best of' recipe recommendation, but we opted for V60, using 30g in/500g out in about 4 minutes- 100g bloom with a big ole stir then 400g in by 2 minutes 30 seconds with another stir n swirl before leaving to pull through.
