  • More about the Florencio Villatoro:
    The Guayabales lots have consistently showcased excellent acidity, a rich hard candy sweetness, and bright fruity through-line. Pedro uses aggressive pruning methods more than most of his siblings and it seems to be working well for him. His yields are streamlined, the profiles consistently standouts year to year. Shade is provided partially from the trees, partially from the steep cut of the land itself, the aspect and slope providing cover during the early morning and often fog in the afternoon, slowing growth and developing sugars.

    Guayabales, like all farms in Guatemala has had its challenges. While he has mostly overcome rust in the past years, the difficult road to Hoja Blanca makes the harvest difficult, especially after heavy rains. Pedro's goal is to continue to improve his lots, adding different varieties and over time improving processing techniques. Over the years he's seen many improvements, and the younger generation is innovating Pedro's processes at hyper speed: Drying select lots on raised beds, planting new lots, experimenting with processing. Just this year, Pedro won third place overall in the Guatemala COE with a Gesha-Caturra!
