It's been a long time since we've had coffee from Guatemala. This is an origin with many incredible producing regions, high altitude and fantastic soil. Coffee production in Guatemala is varied with many large estate farms, medium sized small farms and small farms that work together as co-operative groups. Washed coffee tends to be the most coffee processing method with some naturals and honeys appearing more recently.

Farm Overview:

This coffee is organic certified and comes from a group of women coffee producers all who lost their husbands during the civil war and coffee crisis of 2001-2004. As a group, these women are stronger together and are able to produce fantastic coffee as a co-operative.

Guatemala coffee producers

Harvesting and Processing:

All of the contributing producers grown mixed tree varietals, Caturra, Bourbon and Typica and farms are typically 2 hectares or less. Coffee is usually one of several crops grown on small-hold farms and during the harvest season, the coffee hand-harvested and delivered to the local mill for processing.

Coffee is very carefully hand-harvested and processed using the washed method then dried on patios. All the contributing farms are organic certified.

Tasting Notes: 

This is a great example of a classic Guatemalan coffee that is so much more than just an ordinary washed central American coffee! We love the clean but rich body with notes of raspberry and plenty of milk chocolate.

Brewing:

This coffee works well for all brew methods. 

Filter: Dose 15g, water 250g. 

Espresso: Dose 17 gram to 40 gram yield over about 30 seconds. 

This coffee is available as whole bean and pre-ground, but we recommend always grinding fresh before brewing. We sell a range of grinders if you would like to grind this coffee fresh at home.
