[Video Transcript] The Weekly: Renardo Ovalle

Seb Prosser: Hello and welcome to The Weekly from Timely Coffees. My name's Seb, I'm one of the co-founders here and this is a video series we use to talk about different coffees we have coming out over the next seven days, specifically about the coffees we're going to be releasing for subscribers. So if you're a subscriber with us, the coffee you're going to be receiving is Renardo Ovalle. So this coffee is pretty interesting because it's a great time of year to be drinking Guatemalan coffee in particular. And this coffee comes from Huehuetenango. So this is an area of Guatemala that is famous for growing really great coffee and really interesting coffees, really clean coffees. And one of the things about Guatemalan coffee, especially from this region, is that even though the coffee tastes so good when it comes out, it doesn't always taste great all year round. So this is really the best time to be drinking Guatemalan coffees and specifically coffees from Huehuetenango. This farm has been in the family for three generations and it was started in 1958. And at that time it was planted pretty much all with Bourbon and Caturra variety trees. This lot itself is all Caturra variety. So if you've had a Caturra variety from us in the past, even though it might have come from a different, different origin, then you'll probably notice a lot of similarities with this one.

Seb Prosser: So it's always a good idea to kind of have a look at what the kind of the variety is on the top of the box whenever you get it and maybe take a mental note. And so you can create this kind of like this, this idea of what different varieties you particularly like beyond just like what origins you like as well. So this is one of my favorite coffees. I am particularly fond of Caturra variety coffees, especially, you know, kind of really clean Caturra is from Central and South America. So I really encourage you to have a taste of this and let us know what you think. If you've got any feedback, then make sure you send us an email as well. But this is a really great time of year to be drinking Guatemalan coffee, like I said. So if you need to sign up for a subscription, this will be your first free installment. And otherwise, if you're already subscribed, this is what you're going to be receiving in the next seven days. And that's all I've got. And I'll see you next week.
