Guatemala Antigua Duenas


We are really excited to find a Rainforest Alliance Certified coffee from Antigua. This premium coffee comes from Luis Pedro Zelaya Plantation. Luis Pedro Zelaya, a fourth generation coffee farmer, and his family.

Among many impressive features of the mill are the sizable maceration tanks and guardiolas. However, this lot was not mechanically dried but rather sent to the greenhouse, where Luis Pedro has stacked raised beds three tiers high and maintains a strict rotation schedule to ensure even drying.

Cup characteristics: Rich and balanced, with good body and mild acidity. Milk chocolate flavors will be prominent along with hints of Caramel, Apple and Cherry juice.

Whole bean, 100% Arabica

Roast level: Rich medium

Recommended brew method: Aeropress, pour over, auto-drip, French press. Makes a nice single-origin espresso.
