The Guatemalan coffees are celebrated for having one of the most complex and nuanced tastes. This particular example is a Genuine Antigua, grown on a volcanic valley surrounding Antigua, the old capital city of Guatemala.

The valley is surrounded by three volcanoes: Agua, Fuego, and Acatenango, approximately 1650m above sea level. The nearby coffee plantations have rich volcanic soil, low humidity, lots of sun and pumice stone, which helps retain moisture to create fertile soil. All these factors result in a fantastic cup of coffee, which is wonderfully fruity and rich, with a surprisingly full body in the cup.

Pollards say: You know how certain tastes can bring back the most vivid memories? Well for our Managing Director, Simon Bower, this is one of them… “In 2002 I paid my first visit to Guatemala and was blown away by the quality of the coffee. When I have a cup of Genuine Antigua, the flavour sends me back to waking up in the hotel and looking out over mile upon mile of coffee plants. A truly delicious and well-balanced coffee that I enjoy best in a plain old filter cone.”
