April's Coffee of the Month

Origin: Guatemala, Central America
Body: Full-bodied
Roast: Medium-Strong Roast (4)
Summary of taste: Honey and chocolate sweetness
Whittard recommends: Using a filter, cafetière or pour over and enjoying black or with milk according to taste
When to drink: Whenever you need a kick-start

This coffee really is the giant of all coffees! It delivers a huge taste from a huge bean, undeniably strong but without any hint of bitterness. It is a great way to kick-start the day or stave off that mid-afternoon lull.

Gold Winner of the Great Taste Awards in 2011, the judges described our Guatemala Elephant Coffee as a "Heavy roast that actually delivers. Well balanced flavours. No ashiness and some gentle chocolate notes. Big, brave and bold - and it worked."

The coffee gets its name from its enormous beans, grown on Arabica bushes on small plantations on the fertile volcanic slopes of Lake Atitlan. Extremely rare and highly prized, the plantations combine their precious harvests and take them to local cooperatives to be pulped. The massive elephant beans are roasted to a deep shade of mahogany to bring out their rich full-bodied taste.

Guatemalan Elephant Coffee is a decadently rich coffee for any time of day, with a delicious hint of chocolate and oozing honey sweetness.

For the freshest and best tasting coffee, please consume within 4 weeks.


Pure Guatemala arabica beans from El Platanillo estate.

Packed in an environment where nuts are handled.

Brew a Perfect Cup

Follow the manufacturer's equipment instructions Always use fresh water. Use water just off the boil so you don't scald the coffee. Do not re-heat brewed coffee.

Five days to deliver is ridiculous, and only average coffee. Other companies ship with next day delivery the day after the beans are roasted, so will not use again.

This is now the only coffee we buy, the taste is lovely, bitter coffee with a subtle chocolate taste but not nasty after taste, We have tried other Whittards Coffee beans before but none of them compare to this Guatemalan Elephant coffee.
My only grip, not with the coffee but with Whittards is that my local shop (which is now 30 miles away) never have it in stock and delivery is expensive on the website for the beans, but they are the best!

Guatemala Elephant really is the best tasting coffee I have ever had and at 63 years old I have tasted a few. I also leaves a wonderful aroma in the kitchen which is so pleasing to come home to.

I use this in my cafetiere - having been to Guatemala and seen where this stuff comes from - high in the cool volcanic mountains with plenty of rain, this is a top quality bean with a lovely flavour

A delicious coffee, full of flavour without being controversial (if you like coffee you will like the Guatemala Elephant).
A firm favourite.
