Guatemala San Vicente Pacaya (Apr - May 2021)Regular price $16.00
Guatemala has a rich history in coffee, and have been growing and exporting coffee since the 1800s. Some of the main coffee producing regions in Guatemala are San Marcos, Acatenango, Atitlán, Huehuetenango, and the well-known Antigua region.
This month, we are featuring coffee from the region of San Vicente Pacaya. This region has several micro-climates and factors which are perfect for coffee production - rich volcanic soil, adequate rainfall, low humidity as well as plenty of sun and cool nights. This provides optimal growing conditions & excellent opportunity for the coffee cherries to develop complex, chocolate notes.
We taste notes of cocoa, brown sugar & cherries in a (slightly nutty) medium-full bodied cup of coffee with light acidity.
As our #dYScover beans are roasted specially, and separately from the rest of our offerings, we only have limited quantities per month! If you have ever thought or wondered about specialty coffee from Guatemala, do make sure you give this a try soon!
There are so many different types of coffee grown in various regions of the world, with each region tasting very distinct from one another.
#dYScover, by Yong Seng Coffee, is our attempt at letting you experience high quality/specialty coffee from the various coffee-producing regions of the world. Read more about specialty coffee here!
Join us on this journey as we bring in coffee from different regions every month, as we explore the world of coffee together.
