The coffee beans you brew are actually the processed and roasted seeds from a fruit, which is called a coffee cherry. Even though the coffee beans are seeds, they are referred to as "beans" because of their resemblance to true beans. Coffee trees can grow to more than 9 meters and live up to 100 years!!
Coffee production in Guatemala is varied with many large estate farms, medium sized small farms and small farms that work together as co-operative groups. This particular coffee comes from a group of women coffee producers all who lost their husbands during the civil war and coffee crisis of 2001-2004.
Now what does it taste like? The tasting notes include rchocolate, red berries and a delicious caramel sweetness. Why not try some yourself?!
Using these Coffee Beans
Grind 18g of these beans, and let it run through the espresso machine until you have 36-38g coffee. This should take about 30 seconds. If it is running faster / slower, adjust the grind dial.

For allergens see ingredients in bold.
Due to the way our food is stored and packaged, this product may contain traces of other allergens due to cross-contamination.
Your beans’ greatest enemies are air, moisture, heat, and light.
Store in an air tight container in a dark, cool, dry place. A cabinet near the oven is often too warm, and so is a spot on the kitchen counter that gets strong afternoon sun.
To keep the great flavour, use within 1 month. The coffee will keep for up to 6 months but the flavour won't be as good. See best before date.
