ALMOND JOY. HEAVY BODY. SWEET FINISH.
Coffee Legend, Petronilo Martinez, is in seventies and still runs up and down the farm like a boss. Rinconada is a lot of the farm Aguacatal and is composed of Bourbon and Caturra. Aguacatal was founded in 1958 by Petronilo's father Gumercindo Martir Martinez, who left the farm to him. Don Petronilo de Jesus was elected as President of the Agriculture Cooperative to direct the production activities with several people and bring the coffee grown in Hoja Blanca to market. He was president for 5 years, but then bought 6 more hectares of land which kept him very busy-- by 1966 he was producing 300 quintales parchment. In 2004 he began working to export his coffee through Onyx, our coffee importing partner.
The family is big. They are very unified, and incredibly hard workers. Petronilo de Jesus Martinez and his wife Demetria Castillo Recinos have 8 children, 23 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren. Most of the family is working in coffee at different levels, from Petronilo's award winning producer son-in-law Aurelio Villatoro to his son Petronilo, a forestry engineer.
**Don't Forget! These beans are green right now! We need you to place your order, so we can roast it especially for you and ship FRESH on Thursday . Wait, tell me more…
At Treeline we like to keep it fresh. All coffees ordered are roasted, packaged and shipped on demand each week on Thursdays. Orders must be placed before 5 a.m. PST in order to have your coffee shipped that week, because as much as we like to think we are awesome - we are not awesome enough to predict what you might be ordering.
All orders after this time will ship the following week. If this seems like a SUPER long time to wait for caffeine (don't worry, we get it) please leave us a note and we will do everything in our caffeinated power to sort you out.
Due to our cafes being extra needy, we roast some coffee earlier in the week as well - if your coffee happens to be the same coffee that they are getting, consider yourself a winner-winner-chicken-dinner because we will probably ship earlier then we just told you we would.
