You'll savor the smoky robust flavor of our Guatemala Organic ground coffee. It has a balanced brightness and a honey, caramel finish. This single origin organically produced coffee comes from the proud farmers of Nuevo San Carlos, Retalhuleu, Guatemala. They have an ideal moderate climate with volcanic sandy soil, and with 190 inches of rainfall, they have a perfect climate for growing excellent coffee.
Place: A picturesque finca (farm) located in the Municipality of Nuevo San Carlos, Retalhuleu, Guatemala. An ideal moderate climate, volcanic sandy-loam soil, and 190 inches of rain annually, set the stage for some remarkable coffee.
Botalical varieties are Bourbon, Catuai, and Caturra.
People: The farm has participated in pioneering the organically produced coffee movement in Guatemala along with a few other visionary Guatemalans over the past thirty years. They take pride in the commitment they have made to organic agriculture, a practice they insist is not a matter of removing or deleting production inputs but one of adding superior elements, such as composting and earthworm culture, in order to produce not more coffee, but better coffee.
Process: The soil on the farm has had many years to develop its own microbiologically balanced ecosystem. The coffee is hand selected, fermented and fully washed, then sundried.
Our master roaster takes this coffee a shade darker than our Medium Roast to enhance the natural caramel notes.
