The Antigua Covadonga is back and is one of our favorite crops this year! It offers sweet
hints of pecan pie, honey, hazelnut, nutmeg along with a syrupy body
and mild acidity. You can also taste a lingering blood orange
undertone, providing an elevated and memorable drinking experience.
Coffee Review gave a seal of 93 points and Ken Davids described the
Covadonga as "a sweetly bright yet balanced cup. The acidity is delicate
yet penetrating, the mouthfeel is light, smooth and silky, orange,
honey, flowers and a hint of milk chocolate in both aroma and cup. A
precious, pure and lyrical coffee."
A verdant colonial region in central highlands of Guatemala, Antigua is nestled within three volcanoes. The Finca Covadonga coffee farm is an elegant treasure composed of dedicated farmers along with a vast knowledge and passion for coffee.
Antigua Valley is perfect for cultivating coffee, with ample rainfall, altitude above 4,900 feet and a constant humidity of 65% -- making Antigua coffees number one in Guatemala.
Imagine a coffee that perfectly combines body, flavor and aroma. Genuine Antigua coffee is internationally renowned for its unique characteristics: fragrance and lingering aroma, slight sweetness, clean and pleasant. A hint of chocolate, as well as a fine and discernible body are unique characteristics of the cup.
