The Guatemala Antigua Covadonga is back and one of our favorite crops this year! Mild chocolate, a sweet lime acidity, and a guava finish. A great all day coffee that is clean and balanced. This coffee offers a smooth body and a very pleasant lingering aftertaste, providing an elevated and memorable drinking experience.
Ken Davids of Coffee Review in his 93 POINTS - assessment describes our GUATEMALA ANTIGUA COVADONGA as:
Sept. 2013 - 93 points: "Smooth, layered complexity. Delicate floral notes, nut-toned chocolate, honey, a hint of banana in aroma and cup. Balanced, sweet-toned acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. The floral notes in particular surface in a sweet, surprisingly deep finish...A fine exemplar of the sweet lucidity of the celebrated Antigua cup."
Oct. 2010 - 93 points: "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 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. Guatemala Antigua Covadonga coffee is internationally renowned for its unique characteristics: fragrance and lingering aroma, slight sweetness, clean and pleasant.
