Tasting Notes

You can always rely upon a wonderful Guatemala Huehuetenango to produce a delicious and juicy cup.

Bright and sweet berry acidity with no sour or lemony attributes.

We love the rich red cherry, long sticky, caramelized sugar and dark chocolate finish.

Flat white, cappuccino, latte, etc. and if you have a plunger or stove-top, this coffee will shine through with layers of flavours and textures.

Cup Attributes

Body : medium

Aroma : toasted nuts

Acidity : bright juicy cup with berry acidity

Flavor : Red cherry, dark chocolate almost "cherry ripe" in finish


A chocolate flavour powerhouse

Guatemala is renowned for having a nuanced cup high in flavour.

Guatemala remains a coffee origin many brands source from to add essential flavour and sweetness to sophisticated blends.

With refined acidity, sweet flavours and bold tastes, it's easy to see what makes Guatemalan coffees unique.

We have been sourcing quality grades from Antigua and Huehuetenango for 16 years, and for the last decade, our sourcing has been exclusively Huehuetenango as the qualities from Antigua have dropped.

Guatemala has almost perfect conditions for growing coffee.

Rich volcanic soils, high altitude and an ideal micro-climate contribute to this fantastic coffee.

Well suited for espresso duty - latte, cappuccino, flat white, piccolo, this coffee continues to kick big goals every time we roast it.

Bold, rich, flavoured. Everything you love about excellent coffees.

Red cherry dark chocolate - has a perfect combination than ever!

Tips - A classy Guatemalan delivering delicious coffee regardless of the target brew type.
Fruitier than most Guatemalan lots, it displays similar attributes to a washed Ethiopian (seriously) but where it shines is a decadent Swiss chocolate note with delectable red cherry flavours.
For lovers of espresso, start with a mid-range grind setting, a washed, high-altitude coffee you can expect that harder, denser particle to choke initially.
But once you find its mojo, this coffee will reward you with tons of sweet chocolate ganache.
In milk or dairy alternatives, it produces incredible flavours of dark chocolate. Run shorter or longer to taste.

How we roast your coffees

light, medium or dark

Each coffee in our store has a unique roast profile carefully engineered and continuously updated to achieve the best balance of flavor, body, complexity, acidity, sweetness and finish.

It's a never-ending process with new lots arriving almost weekly along with the constantly changing Melbourne weather conditions.

We don't use light, medium or dark as our guide. That's so outdated and quite frankly inaccurate with around 20 shades each of light, medium and dark.

The external or outside color is never a true indicator of a coffee's cup attributes (or performance).

In other words, coffee can appear dark outside but have under-developed internals (sour, flat, weak, thin, etc.) if it was roasted poorly.

Similarly, a light exterior can easily mask or hide internal scorching or invalid roasting profile.

The target for all of our coffees (excluding specific filter roast products that are intentionally roasted lighter) is medium.

Think cafe style and coffee that is best suitable for espresso or traditional brewing devices.

What's critically important to us is that we extract maximum goodness for you to enjoy.

After 20 years and hundreds of thousands of batches, we think our Tier 1 infrastructure, skills and experience surpass the market.

did you know about

Ground coffee

Ground coffee will lose around 80% of essential vitality after 15 minutes oxygen exposure. Even ground coffee inside of a sealed, unopened bag will stale considerably within 2 weeks.

Some brewing applications, such as espresso, require roasted coffee in peak freshness to produce a delicious extraction. Other brew methods are less sensitive to the impact of staling coffee.

To ensure freshness, we never hold, store or manufacture any ground coffees. All our coffees are packed as whole beans within 1hr of roasting to lock in freshness.

When a customer orders ground coffee, we take fresh roasted beans, cut the seal, grind, clean and re-seal within 60 seconds. All at the moment your order is packed for dispatch.

We recommend for the best coffee experience to consider purchasing whole beans and grind only enough to brew just moments beforehand.

    LOVE the beans from Guatemala !

    For all I know, Jeff's imports from every country are marvellous; but he advised me the Guatemala would suit my taste and it CERTAINLY does. :)

    When I find a bean that my coffee machine adapts to with just two adjustments, providing my smallish glass of coffee that I eagerly look forward to, why would I bother trying a different bean ?!

    Maybe one day, if the Guatemala runs out (horror !); but until then ..
