Cowboy coffee at its very best. Kick ass coffee that puts hair on your chest.
Currently: Guatemala Finca Idolia
Vaquero is the Spanish word for cowboy, y’see, so we figured it was only right that we rustle up an authentic flavor experience. Traditionally, cowboy coffee is made in a heavy cast iron pot over an open wood fire by some ol’ boy named Wyatt or Buck. But for the rest of us, there is Vaquero – chock full of lower notes like nuts, tobacco and dark chocolate with a heavy body. Cue slow, sad song and ride off into sunset.
In Santa Rosa, Guatemala, Finca Idolia sits between the TTecuamburro and Pacaya volcanoes, 1800 meters above sea level. A blend of washed bourbon, catuai, and pache varietals, this coffee is a balanced cup giving up dark chocolate, tobacco, and spices. Everything about this coffee makes it the perfect representation of Vaquero.
