Guatemala Antigua Medium Roast

Region: Antigua, Guatemala
Varietal: Bourbon, Caturra, Arabigo
Almond, lime, maple syrup, malt
This medium roast came from a new importer we’re trying. In the cup, this coffee much desires to be a medium to dark roast. It is very bold, and can easily handle cream and sugar. That being said, it can accomplish boldness without sacrificing flavor. No unwanted notes of smoke or tobacco are present, but a nutty, acidic, and malty taste comes to mind. This coffee is great across the board, but would really shine with espresso, French press, and drip coffee.

The ‘Pastores’ mill was originally built as a flour mill in the 1800s. The mill bought wheat from producers, processed and sold it as flour. The same method is used nowadays with coffee.
After more than 200 years of near constant renovation and adaptation, Pastores is adding yet another chapter to its book: a brand new wet mill. The wet mill allows Pastores to be more efficient in separating the best quality cherries after harvest. Additionally, Pastores uses roughly 80% less water in processing. But it doesn’t stop there: Pastores is now using its best cherries for natural processed coffees.
