Guatemala Antigua Pastoral


Bean name Guatemala Antigua Pastoral
Country Guatemala
Region Antigua


Antigua is a famous growing region in Guatemala, and for many years has produced some awesome coffees. Much of the revolution of specialty coffee was started with coffees from this the Antgua volcanic soils.

Around 12 months ago they experienced some of the worst storms seem for many years, which damaged much of the plant stock. So my expectations of coffee this year were low, but I've been surprised, very surprised.

In the cup expect a typical smooth Guatemalan with great hints of vanilla which is both floral and aromatic with a lively acidity. I can't decided if this is an espresso coffee or not, sometimes that lovely vanilla's dominates the cup, other times the acidity takes over. So I'll let you make up your own mind.
