Flower Child is honored to roast Don Antonio Saavedra's coffee after many years of watching him grow and his popularity explode among connesiuers. Previously only available through one roaster, we have been granted the opportunity to highlight his work through our platform this year. You're not gonna want to miss this one. Saavedra's Red Caturra is the quintesential representation of everything we love about this variety at it's peak performance. This year was a great year for his coffees, there's heavy sweetness punctuated with sharp notes of cherry acidity. This Caturra is tropical, redolent and hyper clean.

Jesus Antonia Saavedra has adjusted over the years, and adjusted well considering climate change and the fluctuations in the market. He moved his farm higher up the mountain, he's improved his processing and even started to separate varieties so that we could get this 100% Red Caturra. We were one of the first roaster's to work with his coffee when it came into the states almost a decade ago, it's amazing to see how much his work has improved. Saavedra is an inspiration, his work is self-evident in the cup. 

 

Next Roast Day: Monday, June 12th. Best cupped or brewed after two weeks+ of roast date.
