This is our third year working with Finca San Jeronimo Miramar and they have become a key farm for us since we first met the Bressanis in February 2016. The farm is a haven for experimental coffees and every year they produce more than 100 different lots of varieties and processes.

Situated on the slopes of the Atitlan volcano, close to the famous lake of the same name, San Jeronimo is run with meticulous care and attention to detail and an inquisitive and experimental nature by the Bressani family. As well as coffee, the farm is home to the family’s dairy herd, cheese factory, honey bee hives and exotic fruit orchards. Rather than being a distraction, all these different food productions in one place have created an amazing environment for experimentation and a drive for perfection.

The farm has an amazing collection of varieties including this selection of experimental hybrid varieties that they have been cultivating for more than 20 years, through two generations of Bressanis. These hybrids are a mix of genetically diverse wild heirloom varieties from Ethiopia (where Arabica coffee naturally hails from) and disease resistant, high yielding cultivars from Central America. They were first distributed by a research agency in the 1990’s and some of these are now up to three generations old at the farm. When one of these reaches five generations of clear, genetic difference it will become San Jeronimo’s own unique variety!

The lot is named Etiopé – Spanish for Ethiopian- a nod to the hybrid’s Ethiopian heritage and this particular hybrid was by far the best coffee we cupped at the farm this year.
