Description

Uncommon Coffee Roasters (UCR) works directly with coffee farmers whenever possible. This helps the farmers in many ways and ultimately ensures a better tasting cup of coffee for you, our customer.

This coffee is from the farm (finca) of Christian Starry and his son, Christian. It is located near Amatitlán, Guatemala, on the side of an active volcano, near Guatemala City.

We first met the Starrys in the spring of 2014 and we witnessed the affects of coffee rust (roya) on their crop. We also saw how carefully they picked their coffee, only choosing cherries perfectly ripe.

The Starrys spent time living in the U.S. and talked about summer family vacations driving to and from Guatemala. They now live in Guatemala year round.
