Guatemalan Coffee Gift Bag - 1/2 lb
A trail of coffee beans runs through the soul of Guatemala, intertwining its natural, cultural and historical richness!
Thanks to a multitude of different microclimates and soils, the finest varieties of coffee can grow here and reach their full potential through the secular knowledge and continuous innovation of local growers.
Their valuable Arabica quality is enriched by a floral aroma and is low in caffeine due to the "bajo sombra" (= under shade) cultivation technique. However, depending on the region where coffee plants grow, our coffee beans develop different distinctive flavors.
Our craftswomen created these precious bags to enclose the unique bouquet of every blend of pure Guatemalan coffee and you can choose whether to receive it either ground or in whole beans.
In addition, you can pick from our selection of flavors, keeping in mind that each region is world-renowned for its peculiar coffee profile: they are all delicious and unique delights that are worth trying at least once in a lifetime!
Here is our coffee portfolio, divided by regions of cultivation:
- San Marcos: delicate floral notes, pronounced acidity and good body.
- Antigua: elegant and well balanced with a rich aroma and very sweet taste.
- Huehuetenango: fine and intense acidity with a full body enriched with wine notes.
- Acatenango: marked acidity, fragrant aroma and balanced body.
- Colomba Costa Cuca (though not a major region): semi-acidic.
