The plantations peppered around the Guatemalan city of Antigua produce some of the best coffee the country has to offer. Cultivated at high altitude in the mineral-rich soil of a land smouldering with volcanoes, this particular single origin coffee grows slowly under the shade of the forest, resulting in an exceptionally layered taste profile. .
With a wonderfully sweet and honeyed character, intensified by notes of spice and chocolate and a bright white grape acidity, Guatemala Antigua Coffee is one of our experts favourite brews irresistibly intriguing and unashamedly complex, its something of a conversation starter
Fairly strong roast, very rich, a little malty, certainly full bodied. Taste really does linger -- it's strangely almost like a meal. There is a tad of sourness if you brew it strong, but less than very many others at such strength. One of the most satisfying coffees I've had.
