Guatemala Antigua - La Flor del Cafe

Compare this coffee with our other Guatemalans

Sun-dried the old fashioned way at the most modern mill in Guatemala’s top coffee growing region, this Antigua has good acidity with a deep, bittersweet chocolate flavor. Its great aroma and full, yet mellow-body make it a great cup that won’t overpower whatever it is served with.

Okay, this is Daniel, me, and this is my opinion. For a press pot in the morning or evening. The aroma is rich, dark, chocolate, classic on the nose. This is what all those commercials of people waking up to coffee aroma are aiming for. The acidity is low to medium, and the body is full. This is a very balanced cup. The flavor is subtle, dark, mocha notes, and rich. Can I rave any more about this coffee? Roast it medium dark to get the full subtle tones, but don’t overdo it. This is not a French roast coffee.

I roasted this into the second crack and as stated by others it has a wonderful complexity with chocolate flavors that gets even more interesting as it cools. I will order more just for iced coffee. This will become a regular hope the supply holds out.

Wow, great soft milk chocolates came through in a light (post 1st crack) roast. Round with a clean finish. Second pass was taken right past second crack for the majority. We lost some of the subtleties that where present in the lighter roast but what came out was a dark chocolate with a milk chocolate like feel. If you've had Hershey's 50% dark you'll know what I'm talking about. Really good stuff. I'll be adding this to regular rotation.

This is what classic Guatamalian Antigua should taste like! Great rich body and balance with complexities that come out/change as the coffee cools. When first sipped, a pleasant spicy taste can be perceived which then dissapears. The complexity of this coffee imo should be higher than a 4 classification. Yep, I'm ordering 15 more lbs today.
Thank you..for your comments and the order. It is always nice to be able to get coffee from the same small finca/farm every crop year. Sure, there will still be some variabality crop-to-crop but at least we know most of the growing conditions and processes remain the same.

Great Flavor that comes out best with a dark roast. My first roast was light, at the start of the 2nd crack. This lighter roast left me wanting more mody to the finished cup. If you like Antigua, also check out Papau, Timor, and Uganda. The Aroma of this ground, makes it hard to resist brewing.
