Froilan Paredes


Tasting Notes: Watermelon candy, Apricot, Dark Chocolate
12oz Whole Bean

We are really excited to offer this special coffee. It is one of the sweetest washed process coffees we’ve ever tried, and is reminiscent of our extremely popular Pablo Champi (of Peru). It is approachable and balanced, but exciting with loads of clean fruit flavors as well as sweet dark chocolate. Froilan’s coffee is a true crowd-pleaser!

Froilan’s coffee comes to us via De La Gente (DLG), an Antigua based coffee exporter with roots in the Boston-area. David Wilson, a Q-grader compatriot and friend of Aaron MacDougall (Broadsheet’s owner/roaster), was working on the ground in Antigua with DLG; David helped organize and judge a producer competition in the region, in which Froilan’s coffee was a top scoring entry.

Froilan Paredes has worked in agriculture his entire life, originally growing vegetables and flowers, which his wife sold in the market in Guatemala City. He purchased his coffee farm right on the slopes of Agua Volcano (Volcan de Agua) in 2008 with the goal of providing opportunities and education for his children, and received micro-financing from De La Gente to expand his business. He and his wife Aura live with their five children and one of their sons is now a local school teacher. Majorie, their granddaughter, is the “light of the household”
