Antigua sits in a valley surrounded by three massive volcanoes: Agua, Fuego and Acatenango. This outstanding landscape, contains volcanic soil and a unique dry climate, which provides ideal conditions to produce one of the best coffees in the world.

 

Our Guatemalan supplier, Zelcafe, is comprised of small producers that come together to separate each of their 100% Bourbon varietal cherries to create a truly special Antigua coffee.

Guide to Terminology
  • Body

    Measuring Body Range

    The sensation of fullness in the mouth and how long it lingers is body. Full-bodied coffee combines long-lasting flavors with compounds that coat the taste buds, giving the mouth a sense of fullness. Brewing method also influences body. A French press or espresso machine allows more oils and fine particles into the finished brew, producing heavier-bodied coffee. Conventional drip machines use paper filters that trap particles and flavor oils, resulting in lighter-bodied coffees.

  • Brightness, or, acidity

    Measuring Brightness Range

    Brightness is the crisp first impression of a coffee's flavor sensed at the tip of the tongue. The brightest coffees have a snappy, palate-cleansing quality. Coffees with less brightness are soft and smooth, and dark roasts are less bright than light roasts of the same origin.

I do my best to provide accurate information for each coffee, but in the end it is just one man's opinion.
