Expect notes of Honey, Milk Chocolate, Poached Peach.

The Dalton family are third generation coffee farmers in one of Guatemala’s most beloved coffee regions, Antigua. The region is a massive valley surrounded by three volcanoes and is home to the ancient capitals of Mayan people. What makes Antigua such an incredible region for coffee is what helps all the coffee regions that line the Pacific: dynamic weather rolls in, giving the plants the water they need, while intermittent cloud cover and cooler weather slows the ripening of the fruit so the seed inside can gently mature.

This coffee shows so much of what is typical and beloved of Guatemalan coffees, especially from Antigua: a round, honey-like flavour holds everything together with notes of sweet chocolate and delicate, refreshing poached peach.

This lot was processed using the washed method, which retains acidity so the coffee has a vibrancy both as a filter and espresso. As an espresso, this coffee cuts through milk and creates a crowd-pleasingly sweet latte, flat white, or cappuccino. As a filter the coffee is incredibly balanced with a round, lush sweetness.
