Guatemalan Gourmet Coffee - 1lb. Bag
(1) Pound Bag of Gourmet Coffee
Artisan's Roast – Guatemalan San Marcos Coffee (Varietal Arabica Coffee) is a Single Origin Coffee from the San Marcos growing region. We proudly roast this coffee with a centuries old technique using just the right temperature and humidity in our slow roasting process.
This is a classic cultivar coffee (specialized through cultivation) that has medium to full body and a mild low-toned acidity that is distinguished by deep, expansive flavor (desirable primary flavor of gourmet coffees). Our Guatemalan Coffee provides rich yet subtle flavors that are sweet and balanced with hints of dark chocolate and strawberry fruitiness as a medium roast. As a dark roast, it has full body and deep aroma that lingers like a long walk in a strawberry field.
Guatemala coffee is one of the great complex coffees of the world. We think you'll agree, this Guatemalan San Marcos coffee suggests a smoky essence that contrasts the soft chocolatey undertones superbly.
The warmest of the Guatemala’s coffee-growing regions, San Marcos also has the highest rainfall pattern, reaching up to 200 inches (5,000 mm) and humidity is between 70-80%. The altitude ranges from 4,600- 6,000 feet with volcanic soil and a microclimate influence from the Pacific Ocean. The seasonal rains come sooner than in other regions, producing the earliest flowering. As in all of Guatemala’s remote regions, most of Volcanic San Marcos is cultivated on farms with their own processing mills. Because of the unpredictability of rainfall during the harvest season, much of the coffee is pre-dried in the sun and finished in a Guardiola dryer.
This is a very dependable coffee. All of Guatemala's high altitude coffees develop a delightful aroma, pleasant acidity, full body, and delicate sweetness--a combination that results in a balanced and flavorful cup. The diminished and gentle acidity, as well as the coffee's balance and sweetness, have also made Guatemalan coffees a great choice for use in coffee blends.
Our Roast Master hopes you'll enjoy the experience of truly Fresh-Roasted Coffee. This gourmet coffee has great body (mouthfeel) and wins many points with our roasted coffee connoisseurs. Did you also know that coffee beans come from the center of the coffee plant's cherry (fruit), and is the seed of the plant.
Single Origin Coffee definition: Unblended coffee from a single country, growing region, or plantation--sometimes called straight coffee.
