Guatemala is often referred
to as the jewel of Central America for coffee production and Antigua contains
the jewels of Guatemalan coffee. Guatemala is a relatively large country in
Central America that borders many coffee growing counties Mexico, El Salvador,
Honduras, and Belize. Antigua is located in the central highlands, not too far
from the Pacific coast. The growing altitude there is quite high and the
environmental conditions are excellent. Most Antigua coffees are from smaller
family farms that practice sustainable, alternative farming practices. Naturally
elegant and effortlessly complex, these dynamic and lively beans boast good
acidity and excellent aroma. The taste is very clean, mildly sweet wine with
citrus tones and a smooth cocoa finish! This jewel from Antigua is one of the
few single origin coffees that can produce a perfectly balanced cup.
Please note these beans are not roasted.
