Illy MonoarabicaTM Guatemala – Huehuetenango single-origin coffee is a complex medium bodied, medium roast coffee with notes of chocolate, caramel and honey.
Rising high above sea level, the pristine mountains of Huehuetenango in Guatemala are as remote as they are beautiful. Here warm winds from Mexico neutralize the cold of the 6,500-foot altitude, providing perfect growing conditions in the shade of the Maya forest—producing one of the world’s finest growing regions.
Taste and Aroma
The rare combination of altitude, warmth, and shade found in Huehuetenango gives this coffee its balanced sweetness, and range of tastes and aromas including chocolate, caramel, honey and citrus. The result is a supremely enjoyable coffee experience.
From the Taster's Notes
Characterized by a sweet and aromatic organoleptic profile, this Arabica variety is recognizable by its distinct sweetness and balance. It is enriched by a range of aromas, among which the chocolate, caramel, citruses and honey notes stand out.
