Guatamala Los Gigantes

Guatamala Los Gigantes


Plum, Milk Chocolate, Brulée

Small producers in northern Chimaltenango call Typica ‘gigante,’ or ‘giant,’ for the long curved shape of the bean. It is planted abundantly, alongside smaller amounts of Bourbon and Caturra. This region has ideal conditions for growing these older varieties, with elevations exceeding 2050 masl. Often, these smallholders have less than one hectare of coffee planted, and most harvest their own cherries, taking them to nearby receiving stations where they are then processed and dried in Antigua.

CUPPING NOTESWe gravitated to the sweeter, rounder profile. Think milk chocolate, plum and brulée with a subtle balancing brightness and jasmine aroma.
