Guatemalan coffee beans
Crisp yet spicy with a lasting aftertaste, our Guatemalan coffee beans are celebrated for their unique flavour, full-body, medium acidity, chocolate undertones and heady sweetness.
Handpicked by reputable farmers who share our passion for quality coffee, these beans are renowned for their rarity, sustainability and distinct palette.
High-altitude coffee from Guatemala
Coffee beans from this part of the globe are farmed at altitudes spanning impressive heights. It’s these heights that add to their distinct, bold flavour - a flavour Guatemala coffee beans are renowned for.
Coffee beans grown at high elevations produce high-quality fruit, which is why connoisseurs prefer to drink single-origin styles and blends curated from high-elevation plantations. Why? Because they produce quality, green beans that boast highly intense, rich-tasting notes - something coffee beans grown at lower levels are unable to provide.
The reason for this? The cooler climate and volcanic soil, which results in a slower growth rate and a more concentrated, flavoursome fruit.
What makes Guatemala coffee beans unique?
Our Guatemala coffee beans grow at an altitude of 5,000 plus feet. This elevation combined with the ideal coffee growing subtropical climate and the fertile, nutrient-rich volcanic soil is what gives beans from this region their robust, characteristic flavour.
Plants grown at the highest elevations, such as Huehuetenango coffee beans or plants cultivated in the Antigua region, boast brighter, bolder flavours spanning from citrus to green apple to berries.
Coffee from this country is renowned for its medium to full body flavour and low acidity. Guatemala coffee beans boast sweet floral elements and a chocolate finish. Certain styles boast creamy, nutty, toffee flavours, others offer a bittersweet cocoa taste, and depending on the roasting methods and region, a few Nuevo variants boast smoky undertones.
The amalgamation of heady sweetness, mild acidity and full-bodied flavour, makes our beans from Guatemala extremely versatile and suited to a wide range of tastes, whether you prefer a long black or strong cold brew.
