Espresso Recipe | Guatemala La Esperanza


With this coffee we decided to use a short ratio (1: 2), since we wanted to enhance the super silky and dense body this Guatemala has. It is an intense coffee, very fruity and with a bright and sweet orange acidity.

We love it!

The Coffee

Aurelio’s father, Eleodoro, was a specialty coffee pioneer in Guatemala, starting his first farm in 1953. Eleodoro purchased La Esperanza in 1956. In the early years he had to use pack animals to move the product to a market 60 km away. When he passed away, he left behind a rich legacy to his family that decided to continue his incredible work in the world of coffee. Aurelio is one of his 12 children, and he and his siblings work to continually improve the farm. Their expertise has made this farm win numerous awards for its outstanding quality.
