Guatemala El Fogon
The coffee crowd pleaser. See further product details below.
This is my son Ollie’s favourite coffee. It’s the one he first tried when he was helping me out at the home roastery after school when he was only just a teenager. So, it has a special place in our heart and it’s still his favourite now to drink as well as one of his favourites to roast.
It’s a typical South American coffee with its indicative flavours of vanilla and cocoa. The light-bodied sweetness makes it a coffee that is a real crowd pleaser and ideal for ending a nice meal. Fantastic to drink on its own but also works extremely well in blended coffees, in fact it appears in 3 of our 5 blends.
Coffee arrived in Guatemala from the Caribbean around 1700 and local cultivation began shortly after. Commercial export of Guatemalan Coffee Beans did not begin until the mid 1800’s.
