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.


Pure Guatemala arabica beans from El Platanillo estate.

Packed in an environment where nuts are handled.

I love this coffee, Simply adore the aroma and taste, I was shocked when i first saw the size of the beans, They take a little longer to grind but well worth the effort, Recommend this coffee to everyone

Have had this for special treats a few times. The aroma is amazing and the flavour is to 'die for'! If you ever want to try just one coffee, then this is the one - I just love it!

I've been buying Guatemala Elephant dark roast coffee for a number of years now. It is absolutely one of my favourites - very rich and strong but not at all bitter. Expensive but worth it.

We have used this product for many years now, and it is always exactly the same. We once tried a cheaper offer of the same bean from another supplier and it was not up to the usual standard from Whittard.
Deliveries are always quick, though once we mistakenly order ground instead of beans, but they were replaced instantly - service above and beyond as our American friends say.
Our only gripe is the discount card is not now available on web orders, though it is still there for orders in the shops'
Still a 10 out of 10 service
