Guatemala IntelligenteFlattop Coffee Roastery
Cupping Notes: Chocolate covered raisin, apple acidity, orange oil, black tea
These beans come from Hacienda Carmona Pulcal, an old coffee estate overlooking the Guatemalan city of Antigua at 6000 ft. A very unique segment in the upper portion of the farm called “Intelligente” produced these specific beans. Hillside exposure and ideal drainage create ideal topography to produce some exceptional coffee. The cup is very sweet, balanced, and complex. Chocolate covered raisin, apple-like acidity, and hints of orange oil finish in a crisp black tea note. The cup stays honey sweet as it cools. Brews a fantastic pour-over or single origin espresso.

Most coffees taste somewhat flat for the first 24 - 48 hours after the roast. During this phase, our coffee is in transit to you. By the time you receive it, it should be entering the peak consumption time that will last around 10 - 14 days.
