Guatemala is one of the world's most celebrated coffee origins, with many extraordinary regions excelling in specialty coffee production. This coffee is vibrant and juicy with tasting notes of orange, raisin, and caramel. The balance between the sweet, citric acidity and the delicate body make for an easygoing yet sophisticated cup perfect as a drip or pourover. No added flavoring. 2 Pack contains two 5lb bags of coffee (10lbs total).

Innovation and replanting

After the coffee leaf rust fungus rampaged across Central America in the 2010s we saw our Guatemalan producer partners jump into action. Project funds were used to set up testing plots for new coffee varieties and to monitor, over the course of multiple harvests, how each plant behaves in terms of production volume, disease resistance, and cup quality. Todd Caspersen, our director of purchasing and production, notes that this level of scientific research is something that you don’t see very often in farmer co-operatives, and we’ve been really excited about the results.

What do our roast names mean?

At our solar-powered roastery in West Bridgewater, Massachusetts, our worker-owner team batch roasts and conducts production cuppings daily to bring out the best characteristics in each harvest. With four primary roast levels, we think there’s a favorite here for everyone.

Medium Roast: expect the unique citrus, nutty, fruity, or floral notes of each coffee to shine through.

Full City Roast: you’ll get a bit more of the caramel flavor that comes from the roasting process.

Vienna Roast: starts to bring the smoky aroma and smooth and rich body of a darker roast.

French Roast: with the natural oils fully expressed, it’s an intensely dark and smoky experience akin to dark chocolate.
