TWO VOLCANOES WHOLE BEAN COFFEE – GUATEMALAN ORGANIC, GOURMET & RARE, SINGLE ORIGIN
Finally, a coffee that is from a rare and single origin as opposed to a blend. This little delicacy hails from Guatemala, as the name suggests at the base of two volcanoes. It is organic but not fully certificated as being so.
This is not cheap, in part due to its small batch roasting process, which is more labor intensive, but so worth it.
Tasting great and also smelling fantastic, this has a somewhat subtle flavor that doesn’t deliver any knockout punches on the path to morning caffeination, more a gentle meander down the path of wakefulness.
If you get the chance to try this you should not pass up the opportunity to sample one of the best Arabica coffee beans of Guatemala.
