  • Description

    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.

    We like to brew Guatemala Elephant coffee in a stove top - but enjoy experimenting with our equipment to find your unique brewing style.

  • Ingredients

    Roasted Arabica beans.

    Storage: Always store coffee in an airtight container. Ground coffee should be used within 2 weeks of opening to ensure optimum freshness.

    Roasted and packed in the UK.

Brew the Perfect cup

When making coffee always use freshly drawn and boiled water – wait a few seconds for the water to cool so you don't scald the grinds. Cardinal rule? Never re-heat brewed coffee! Freshness is everything.

SERVING SUGGESTION

Drink

Espresso

Equipment

Stove Top

This gutsy coffee deserves to be enjoyed as a strong espresso – try brewing it with a Moka stovetop.

Origin: Guatemala

Huehuetenango ("way-way-te-nan-go") in western Guatemala is famed for its high-quality coffee; the name is Nahuatl for "place of the ancients".

Big Beans, Bold Flavour

All our coffee is "arabica" coffee, but within that species there are many varieties in existence. Maragogype – or "Elephant" – is one of the most recognisable: the beans are famously massive, and prized for their unique flavour.
