Guatemala Antigua

Elegant and refined with layers of unfolding flavor— notes of lemon, chocolate and soft spice.

The Antigua Valley of Guatemala is treasured for its 100-year-old farms, nutrient-rich volcanic soil and its coffee, which is the touchstone of quality. Farmers take enormous pride in traditions they've passed on for generations. As a result, the coffee you experience is rich and multidimensional, with a flavor that's consistent, cup after cup—lemon, chocolate and soft spice notes with an elegant mouthfeel unique to this region. It's why we loved this coffee back in '71, and why we love it today.

Recipe For Great Coffee

Use cold, filtered water and a clean machine.

Grind beans just before brewing:
- Coarse for coffee press
- Medium for automatic drip

Measure 2 tbsp (10 g) ground coffee for every 6 fl oz (180 ml) water.

To help preserve that fresh flavor, keep this bag sealed tight in a cabinet (not in the refrigerator) and brew within a week of opening.
