These Guatemalan coffee beans are beautifully sweet and rich in flavour. Grown at around 1700 metres on a microlot farm near the town of Chimaltenango, these Orange Bourbon and Red Bourbon varietal are, surprisingly, the only specialty coffee grown in a town of almost 56,000.
With an overall cupping score grade of 84, these beans have a similar sweetness to that of the Nicaraguan beans and are often interchangeable within a blend.
Guatemala is known for its specialty coffees with sweet flavoured nuances unique to the country. What makes it so unique is that the climate is so diverse with lots of high altitude farms, consistent rainfall and a good understanding and practice of coffee technology.
