Genuine Antigua – full body
Guatemala is growing one of the world’s most famous coffees in the region of the ancient capital Antigua. Nestled between three massive volcanoes at an elevation of 1,800 m, the Antigua Valley of Guatemala produces arguably one of the world's very finest coffees. Only here – and on the Galapagos Islands – does the heirloom variety of Arabica bean known as Bourbon develop such a sublimely sweet coffee fruit, with the dry climate stressing trees just enough to give the beans their tantalisingly complex flavours. At high altitudes beans mature slowly, becoming denser, harder and packed with flavour — perfect for retaining plentifulness and complexity under the intense heat of a deep roast. Among coffee appellations, 'Genuine Antigua' perhaps is the best of the best. Vee’s Guatemala 'Genuine Antigua' is a deep roast, a “Cup of Excellence”, full-bodied, almost perfectly balanced, with aromatic grace and a distinctive aroma of the best bittersweet chocolate.
Best for: Filter coffee, Espresso, Cappuccino, Latte Macchiato
