This is a new crop of Antigua Los Volcanes a coffee from Guatemala, now in the Roastery. One of our favourite coffees, the Roastery shop regularly sells this blend and it is popular with customers seeking a full flavour but without the bitterness that is often associated with coffee that is roasted too dark. At Edgcumbes we roast in small batches, to a medium roast level – this keeps the intrinsic sweetness in the bean and therefore the flavour!

Among our choice of coffee from Guatemala, the Genuine Antigua Los Volcanes and Almolonga are by far the best coffees with regards to quality. The taste profile of these coffees is, above all, complex. Time and time again, we are amazed about the variety of flavour nuances that are brought out depending on the roasting grade. In our opinion, these coffees are best sold unblended, thus their unique complexity and aroma can be savoured best. For these coffees, we recommend a medium to dark roast to bring out the chocolatety notes.
