When it came time to choose our first bean for Canyon Coffee, we decided we wanted to pick one from Guatemala.
In part because of the chocolatey body we've come to associate with some of our favorite Guatemalan coffees, and because of a personal connection—Casey spent some time living there several years ago.
We cupped a selection of organic beans from Guatemala, and Chochajau was the clear winner. When brewed, it has a remarkably smooth texture and light body, which pairs amazingly with its chocolate and almond notes!
ABOUT: Our first bean, this Guatemalan coffee hails from Cerro Lancandon Chochajau, a farm collective near the beautiful Lake Atitlán. The collective cultivates 81 acres and is contributed to by 27 different producers.
Smooth chocolate & vanilla with toasted almonds.
Bourbon, Caturra, Catuai, Typica
* Note: while our beans are certified organic, we are unable to claim this product as certified organic until our roasting facility has undergone the certification process! Thank you for your patience :)
