Guatemala Antigua Acate Estate SHB  The SHB refers to "Strictly Hard Bean" which are coffee beans grown over 4,500 feet, this allows the beans to mature slower and develop better flavour. Perfect. We love coffee flavour!

This coffee is intense and fragrant. A strong flavour that is balanced and has a long, chocolate finish in the mouth. 

One of my personal favourites. I love it as a filter coffee and prefer to let it cool in the cup.

The Region

There are eight separate coffee growing regions in Guatamala. Our BUZZ comes from the Acate Estate in the region of Antigua. Antigua Coffee® Rich volcanic soil, low humidity,lots of sun, and cool nights characterize the Antigua Coffee® region.

The region produces some of the finest coffees in the country. The coffee is grown in the shade at 5,000 to 5,700 feet above sea level and collectively wet milled and sun dried by hand.
This valley is surrounded by three volcanoes: Agua, Fuego, and Acatenango. Every once in a while, Fuego—one of Guatemala’s three active volcanoes—adds a fresh dusting of mineral-rich ash to Antigua’s soil.

Volcanic pumice in the soil retains moisture, which helps offset Antigua’s low rainfall. In Antigua, shade is especially dense to protect the coffee plants from the region’s occasional frost. 

The rich volcanic soil and rainforest conditions produce a well-balanced Arabica coffee with a smooth finish.
