First fresh crop Guatemala offering of the season!

Since 1998, Finca Buena Vista has been under the management of Luis Pedro Zelaya, one of the most important figures in Guatemalan coffee. Luis Pedro runs the Zelcafé group of companies in Guatemala, which among other assets, contains the Bella Vista Mill in Antigua, where almost any coffee buying professional has spent meaningful time in their travels to Guatemala.

For ReAnimator specifically, visiting Bella Vista Mill and Luis Pedro for the first time many years ago was one of the first times we had access to more direct coffee relationships at origin. His ability to open those doors to smaller roasters, along with the quality of his coffees, are what keep us coming back.

When will my package ship?

Generally, we try and ship all packages the next business day from when the order was placed. If you ever have a question on the status of your order, just shoot us a message via our contact form.

Do you offer free shipping?

All orders over $35 get free shipping!

How do you ship?

At checkout, you will be able to select a shipping option that works best for you, with rates calculated dynamically based on your proximity to our roastery.

Do you ship internationally?

We do offer international shipping -- at checkout, rates will be dynamically calculated based on the country you are ordering to. If you don't see your country represented, reach out via our contact form.

Is your coffee organic and/or fair trade?

While some of our coffees may be certified organic or fair trade, we do not specifically look for either of these certifications when buying, and do not market them as such. All of our coffees are bought at fixed prices above the market, and 99% of the time we are paying higher prices than the Fair Trade Certified price. Our sourcing goals are always quality and flavor focused, and we buy from producers and importers we trust to provide us with coffee that fits into our ideology. 

How fresh is my coffee when I receive it?

We roast Monday through Friday each week, so generally, we try and ship coffee within 24 hours from roast whenever possible. With our shipping times, that means you should always receive your coffee within 2-5 days from roast, depending on your location and proximity to Philadelphia, and the shipping option you choose.

Do you have recommendations for brewing?

Yes! First and foremost, whenever possible, grind directly before brewing. This will help maintain freshness, and help you get the most from your coffee. Additionally, we recommend a ratio of about 1:16.8, (so about 22g of coffee for a 12oz cup). If your brew is tasting too weak, try using a finer grind size; and if it’s a slower, heavier brew, try to make the grind more coarse. If you have any additional questions, or want to get into more detail, feel free to drop us a line in our contact form.

Coffee Details

This lot is 100% Bourbon varietal, which, paired with the region, altitude, and climate where it was grown, creates one of the most classic and refined ideas of what Guatemalan coffee is and can be. It's sugary and sweet, with just enough acidity to make it light and refreshing.

We've been visiting Antigua for almost as long as ReAnimator has been buying coffee. Some other notable coffees we've had over the years through our relationship with Luis Pedro and Bella Vista are Los Santos and Miramundo. We visited Bella Vista again earlier this year, and will be bringing in coffees from these farms once again later this season.
