Timoteo Minas has been growing coffee for the past 28 years. He cultivates his coffee with intense care on the slopes of Volcán de Agua. Nearby is an active volcano, Volcán Fuego, and the sulfur emitted through its eruptions provides beneficial nutrients for the soil—great for coffee growing. Every action Timo takes on his land is deliberate—from the spacing between his trees to how he processes it. He is constantly innovating and searching for better production and processing methods.

Most of the cooperative members blend their coffees to sell under the San Miguel Escobar Cooperative name. A few years ago, we asked Timoteo to separate his lot for us to purchase separately - because it was that good, and we’ve seen it get better, year over year.

Timoteo Minas - best coffee on planet earth

I’ve spent a lifetime searching for a consistently flavorful and rich coffee with no heavy acid taste or overtones, yet still packs a punch. Found it. I now buy Timoteo Minas by the two pound bag (two bags at a time) and Nossa Familia never disappoints in filling the order. 5 stars for grower Timoteo Minas and 5 stars for Nossa Familia.

The richest, most complex, yet utterly pleasurable earthy coffee I've ever had!

You can taste the tropical air and soil in these beans, with a complexity of terroir that rivals any of the finest wine grape varietals. Try this coffee immediately! Grind it coarsely, brew it in a French press, don't use water any hotter than 200 degrees. Simply magnificent coffee!
