Country Guatemala
Region Antigua
Other info Genuine Antigua


Guatemala has gone through some rough times recently and we weren't expecting to get any Antigua for a while. A lot of 05 crop got damaged during the hurricane season and the devastation was high.

Guatemala can be either very good, or very bad, it knocks your socks of or disappoints. This one you'll be pleased to hear is great. First you notice how superbly aromatic it is, almost as good as a Kenyan. Then you get a well balanced and lively acidity, with hints of spice and floral tones and a great aftertaste. Limited stocks of this it won't be around for long.

Works well in either espresso or Filter/ French Press.
