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.
Organic House Blend was created by blending two organic coffees from Latin America: the Colombian Los Vascos and the Nicaraguan San Juan. Carefully roasted to highlight the coffees’ vibrant and natural flavours, House Blend is a crowd pleasing combination of sweeetness and balance.
Organic Classic Blend was created by blending two coffees from Latin America: the Brazillian Dutra and the Colombian Belen. Combining the intense nut-and-chocolate flavours of the former with the smooth sweetness of the latter, this is a big, bold roast which you won’t soon forget.
Organic Decaf is an easy-to-drink, classic coffee. Decaffeinated using the all-natural sparkling water method, it's made from lots grown in the forests of the West Nile. The coffee cherries here ripen slowly, creating a naturally sweet, complex cup which is incredibly smooth and balanced.
