Deliciously delicate and complex; grown at elevations more than 4,600 feet above sea level, the grade of Guatemala-Antigua coffee beans is known as Strictly Hard Bean and include the Arabica varietals Catuai (Coffea arabica var. catuai), Caturra (Coffea arabica var. caturra), and Bourbon (Coffea arabica var. bourbon).
An exceptional premium coffee, Antigua exhibits the best Guatemala coffee qualities of a full body (heavier than the usual Central American coffee) and a spicy taste of a honey-melon key lime experience often rich and bursting with velvety fruitiness.
Best Roast: Medium
Guatemalan coffees are naturally smooth and delicious, and work great in a medium roast. However, it also works well with a dark roast that creates a pleasing smoky taste in the brewed cup of coffee.
