Exquisite Guatemalan Coffee
Exquisite Guatemalan Coffee
Matagalpa was gold was discovered in 1840, attracting a wave of Europeans. Germans brought coffee seeds and found that the “Land of the Eternal Spring” was ideal for growing the tropical cash crop. The Germans sent back their coffee and soon Nicaragua had a fine reputation in the sidewalk cafes and drawing rooms of Munich.
Guatemala produces natural beauty in a seemingly effortless way. It’s a place where southward-marching civilization stopped to set up shop – the Mayans stuck around to build fantastic stone pyramids riddled with hieroglyphics and pictograms that sprawled across their architecture in labyrinthine complexity. Beauty is inherent in all growing things Guatemalan. The coffee from this region has stone fruit, almond, brown sugar, and toffee notes. The high altitude, cold nights and hot days produces a ‘super hard bean’. This sugar density lends to its smoothness. Beautiful coffee from a beautiful country.
Adjust your grind to meet the desired time. A finer grind will extend your brew time by causing the water to drain slower. A coarser grind will shorten your brew time.
Dark roast coffee contains more CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) than lighter roasted coffee. This causes the bloom to be larger as the coffee rapidly degasses. We recommend a longer bloom phase (45s-60s).
After the bloom and first pour ends, allow the coffee to drain until around 2-3cm above the coffee bed. With your second and final pour, make sure to knock loose all the ground coffee that has clung to the sides of the filter. These extra instructions help to ensure you have a flat bed of coffee for the water to drain through.

Espresso Brewing Guide
Notes: Distribute the ground coffee evenly in the portafilter basket. Tamp straight down with approximately 30lbs of pressure leaving a flat and even bed of coffee in the portafilter. Review your brew recipe, pull your shot of espresso. Adjust grind finer/coarser to increase/decrease brew time. Results will vary due to machine/grinder differences. Explore taste results at +/- 3 seconds in relation to the recipe time to find the best taste at home.
