Guatemala Antigua Acate Estate SHB When brewed this Guatemalan Coffee has medium acidity with a rich and full body.
It is highly fragrant with flavours of bitter chocolate and spices. Elegant and refined with incredible complexity and balance.
The flavour is intense and it loves to be in a plunger, a drip or a syphon. For me it is espresso, but then it usually is.
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.
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.
