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.

Just a wee note to say my mum LOVED this coffee and I loved the speedy delivery and careful packaging!

Whittards closed their shop in Tunbridge Wells several years ago so I was left buying beans from our local Super market which we did not really enjoy so I was delighted to find Whittards on the web and was once again able to buy and enjoy one of my favourite breakfast coffees again. I always buy beans and freeze the bag and just grid enough for breakfast. By freezing the beans it keeps them fresh

A long-time favourite, this coffee. We discovered it just after we got married and have been buying Guatamala Elephant coffee beans ever since. Store them in the freezer and take them out when we fancy a special cup of coffee.

This was one of the first beans I ever sampled from Whittards and I could never forget that beautiful, smooth, earthy flavour.
Having bought some more I still love the taste and is by far one of my favourite beans.
I use an electric grinder to grind my beans fresh each day, taking them to work in an air tight container and using a French press to brew the coffee.
My preference is black with no sugar but I like a strong flavour

I brought this coffee for my parents and sister to share with some vanilla syrup, at first I was really looking forward to so when we had some I was really shocked because it was delightful smooth and not to strong, 2 sugars for me and this is perfect.
