GUATEMALA ANTIGUA LOS VOLCANES - Dark Roast Coffee

ORI-GUANDA-BE250

Here at Redber we only Roast to Order - All of our Coffees are fresh and never stored!

The El Pensativo cooperative, from which we source our Antigua coffee, is located near the volcanoes of Acatenango and Fuego. Known collectively as La Horqueta, the volcanoes are always active but to a low level. The volcanic activity of the region creates an abundance of micronutrients in the air and soil and makes the coffee both delicious and relatively easy to grow.

El Pensativo was established in 1972 and has grown in production quantity and quality almost every year since then. With the help of another cooperative, they have been financed to upgrade the production equipment of local producers and provide experts to improve yield and final cup quality.

The collection ‘Antigua’ is made up of several local microlots which are very small scale and family run. The coffee cherries are dried on the roofs of the houses on the steep mountain side. Once it has undergone a drying process it is shipped to the cooperative for cupping and exporting.

The final coffee we receive is perfectly balanced with sweet caramel and exotic fruit. It finishes with a subtle citrus like acidity and a hint of hazelnut. The aroma of the coffee is sweet and the body smooth. It makes for a really pleasant drink however it is brewed. Our most recently lot was cupped at 83.

Lovely coffee

Having tried different suppliers of Guatemala coffee, I’m happy to report that this one is everything I hoped it would be. Will definitely buy again.

Nice roast

Usually but the Guatemala green beans and roast myself but bought the roasted coffee beans by mistake. Lovely roast, nice flavour. Will buy again but make sure I order the green beans so I can roast myself to suit my taste. Would recommend.
