This coffee has a distinct quality, one which is easily recognisable, but complex to describe. Chocolate? Yeah sure. Brown sugar? Maybe a little? Caramel? You could say so. 

We love how balanced this coffee is. Its sweetness, acidity and body are in perfect proportion and it leaves a wonderful lingering finish on your palate.

This coffee is complemented really nicely by milk which brings out a lovely malted milk biscuit note.

About This Coffee

If an alien landed on Earth and asked: “Hey buddy, what does coffee taste like”? You know what? We’d brew them a cup of Guatemala Acatenango. For us, this coffee has all the hallmark qualities of tasty coffee.

This coffee is a micro-lot produced by the Acatenango cooperative, located in, would you believe it, Acatenango. The cooperative was established in 1967 to improve the livelihoods of its members and now comprises of 351 producers, who are all dedicated to producing high-quality coffee. The growing region is sandwiched between some of Central Americas largest and most active volcanoes which is great for fertile soil, but not so great for eruptions.

The Acatenango cooperative has implemented various systems to ensure consistency and quality, not least of which is the way they dry the coffee beans. The process is carefully controlled using mechanical dryers called Guardiolas which limits fermentation and extends the shelf life of the beans.

Coffees from Guatemala have a distinct quality. One which is easily recognisable, but difficult to describe. Chocolate? Yeah sure. Brown sugar? Maybe a little? Caramel? You could say so. However you describe the character, it’s definitely delicious. We love how balanced this coffee is. Its sweetness, acidity and body are in perfect proportion and it leaves a wonderful lingering finish on your palate. This coffee is complemented really nicely by milk which brings out a lovely malted milk biscuit note.
