Guatemalan coffee is quickly becoming the most respected and desired coffee in Central America. Cerro Grande exhibits the fruity acidity and full-bodied syrupy sweetness that will make Guatemalan coffee your new favorite.
Story of the Bean:
Ivan Ovalle’s great grandfather purchased the family farm in 1957, simply naming it "big hill." Today, Mr. Ovalle works in harmony with the natural world by leaving over 120 acres of forest within the property untouched. Not only does this ensure that the natural environment will remain for future members of Mr. Ovalle’s family, but it also creates the growing conditions that produce the bright citrus and sweet candy flavors of Cerro Grande.
A really good brew!
Very smooth! Perfect for those who like a lighter roast. I highly recommend it!
Good, Balanced Coffee
A smooth, pleasant coffee with a good flavor. I never noticed any individual tasting notes that were especially prominent; rather, they all seemed to work together to create an enjoyable roast.
