Getting product details...

From Artisan Roast:

A bright and vibrant single origin roast with flavours of toffee, pear and green apple followed by subtle acacia blossom like aromas.

The region of Acatenango has for some time lived in the shadow of it's famous neighbouring region, Antigua, but in recent years has developed a reputation for stunning coffees all of it's own. From Antigua it sits on the other side of the active volcano Fuego and receives a generous amount of ash during eruptions in most years which help to provide rich mineral heavy soils perfect for coffee cultivation. Acatenango has a weather pattern influenced by the Pacific which gives it a slightly different micro-climate to neighbouring regions which plays a role in developing some very unique flavour profiles.

This is the first year we've bought El Libano and from the samples we got the Typica selection stood out in quality for delivering terroir characteristics of the region and great processing. A past cup of Excellence winner, the farm has shown over recent years that it can produce exceptional quality that shows of the very best of Guatemala and we're delighted to be able to offer this coffee.

We're offering two roasts of El Libano that offer a very different sensory experience - rich and smooth dark roast, and this bright, vibrant light roast, where the focus is on fruit like flavours. This roast profile is fast, with the maillard reaction phase of the roast reduced and caramelisation kept short to retain sweetness, brightness and the unique terroir caracteristics of the coffee. Flavours of toffee, pear and green apple are present through the brew until the finish brings delicate acacia blossom aromatics. The acidity is medium intensity and grape like in quality while the mouthfeel has a creaminess that rolls luxuriously on the palate.

This is very much a roast profile developed for black coffee brewed as filter or aeropress, with filter most likely to bring out the subtle nuances of the Typica cultivar, especially the white fruit and floral aromatics. The aeropress brings out some milk chocolate like flavours that work very well with the caramel ad mute the fruit like character somewhat.
