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 use this in my cafetiere - having been to Guatemala and seen where this stuff comes from - high in the cool volcanic mountains with plenty of rain, this is a top quality bean with a lovely flavour

A delicious coffee, full of flavour without being controversial (if you like coffee you will like the Guatemala Elephant).
A firm favourite.

Someone bought me a taster pack of different Whittards coffees (I'm a big coffee fan) and the Elelphant stood (as you would expect of an elephant) head and shoulders above the rest! It's big and bold but still gentle on the palette.

No other beans come close to Guatemala Elephant...strong roast with no bitter taste, very smooth. It's a shame the foil bags aren't always used for this coffee as I buy in bulk

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
