This relatively small country boasts one of the most climatically diverse regions in the world. The soil, rainfall, humidity, altitude, and temperature are varied enough to produce seven distinct types of Guatemala Arabica coffee. Our Importer worked diligently with their partners to define a quintessential Guatemalan flavor profile that would not only exceed the standard grade qualities at an economical price,but also offer consistency from container to container and year to year. This “Tikal” answers the challenge by giving the exporters the flexibility to utilize coffees from various growing regions (Huehuetenango, Antigua, Atitlan, etc.) as cup quality and character change over time. Dark chocolate, bright lively acidity, a honey-sweet finish and excellent consistency cup-to-cup define the “Tikal” profile. This “Tikal” is well suited to being featured as a single origin offering,and its consistency, sweetness and balance are ideal for adding top notes to filter or espresso blends.
