They say an elephant never forgets, and this bold-tasting bean is likely to leave a lasting impression.

Cultivated on the fertile volcanic slopes of Lake Atitlán, the giant, glossy Guatemala Maragogype beans are quite a curiosity, dwarfing most other beans at almost triple the size! They also trumpet a bold flavour, with deep roasted bass tones, soft fruity top notes, finished with a smooth, well-balanced chocolatey sweetness. A 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."
 
With its striking wholebeans and complex taste profile, Guatemala Elephant has well-earned status as one of the best-loved coffees in our range. To celebrate, we’ve given it a brand new look as part of our collection of beautiful filled caddies – crown this big-tasting coffee king of your kitchen shelf.

My wife bought me a Gagia for my birthday a few years ago and I began my search for a great coffee. Several beans later I arrived at Guatemala Elephant and I haven't tried anything else since. I don't think Blue Mountain is as nice, incidentally, and there isn't really anything else I've found that comes close to GM. Peter (post 5) - if you're referring to Ashford, Kent in your review, you might be pleased to know that Nasons in Canterbury has a Whittards outlet in store.

If you are going to treat yourself to a coffee , then have a good one, and never an instant.
This coffee is it.
Tastes exactly as described, and is enjoyed by drinking it hot and slow, accompanied by Mejool dates.

Since being spoilt with this. I find that I use this as a benchmark, and not a lot compares. Blue Mountain obviously, but at an incredibly higher price. The fact that it bears comparison should tell you all you needs to know. This is silky, sweet, with a bite that is in no way bitter or acidic. Deep, complex flavour, at a bargain price.

WE BUY THIS COFFEE IN BEAN FORM A LOT, IT IS A STRONG TASTE. I USED TO PURCHASE FROM THE ASHFORD BRANCH WHICH IS ABOUT A 1/2 HOUR JOURNEY FROM WHERE I LIVE, BUT, FOUND THIS SHOP HAS GONE.I NOW GET WHEN ON HOLIDAY IN SOMERSET (CLARKS VILLAGE) OR ON THE WEBSITE BUT IS MORE EXPENSIVE AS NO OFFERS AVAILABLE!!
I AM STILL LIKING THIS COFFEE EVEN THOUGH YOUR SHOPS ARE GETTING FURTHER AWAY.

This is a great coffee and certainly not bitter and weak as described by Loopy. But then I suppose she is loopy. Christina Firth's review is about bang on- the coffee is deep, mellow with chocolaty overtones. BUT these are BIG beans and they don't flow through my coffee machine well and I imagine this will be a problem with most machines with built in grinders, so unless you are happy to stand over the machine pushing them through or are hand grinding and using a cafetiere I would avoid. Would have been 5 stars for taste but one off for convenience issues!
