Bean of the Month

Guatemala Nuevo comes from southeast Guatemala, where high elevations create high quality coffee. Warm days and cool nights slow the ripening process, allowing the coffee cherries to develop strength of flavour.

The aroma is gently sweet, with notes of strawberry, honey and coffee blossom. The flavours are much heavier: dark chocolate, blackberry and a hint of nutmeg. Altogether this coffee is elegant yet decadent.

July Bean of the Month | GUATEMALA NUEVO

A rich, boozy-bodied coffee with aromas of strawberry, honey, and coffee blossom, Guatemala Nuevo tastes of dark chocolate, blackberry, and a hint of nutmeg, with a luxurious cherry-liqueur finish. Altogether, a sip of the Nuevo is akin to a bite of black forest cake: elegant and decadent. Perfect for espresso, stovetop, and plunger.

Santa Rosa is a department in the southeast of Guatemala, which came late to coffee growing, despite having the classic climate and terroir. 250 small holder farmers have contributed their harvests to Guatemala Nuevo, coordinating their picking so the cherries are processed together at peak ripeness.

Guatemala Nuevo comes from the Santa Rosa department in the southeast of Guatemala. High elevations create high quality coffees, as the warm days and cool nights slow the ripening process, allowing the cherries to develop depth and strength of flavour.

Nuevo is the product of 250 small lot producers, and their coffee trees are planted up to 1900 metres above the sea level. Most coffees in Guatemala are wet processed, wherein the cherries are removed and the coffee beans soaked to remove any fruit and produce clean coffees with higher acidity.

Nuevo is an exception – a natural processed coffee which has been dried in the cherry skin for higher body and softer acidity. This process, combined with the high altitude creates the rich flavour profile which makes Guatemala Nuevo such a standout.

Long term Bean of the Month drinkers will remember previous July features from Guatemala such as the Todosanteria (2022), and Boqueron (2021). Guatemala Nuevo is very much in the Boqueron vein: a rich, boozy-bodied coffee with a flavour profile akin to a slice of black forest cake.

The aroma is gently sweet, with notes of strawberry, honey, and coffee blossom. The flavours are much heavier: dark chocolate, blackberry, and a hint of nutmeg, finishing with luxurious cherry liqueur. Altogether the Guatemala Nuevo is elegant yet decadent, a perfect choice for coffee drinkers who love strong flavours without too much tartness.

BREW GUIDE

Big flavours are intensified in a stovetop coffee maker, and Guatemala Nuevo is a brilliant candidate for this traditional Italian coffee making method.

To make a great stovetop coffee, fill the bottom chamber with filtered water to just below the valve. It is vitally important that you don’t overfill your coffee maker – we do not want any coffee bombs exploding in your kitchen!

Next fill the basket with a medium-coarse grind coffee and distribute the grinds by giving the basket a light tap on the bench to knock out any air pockets, and levelling off the coffee grounds to create an even surface.

Assemble your coffee maker and put on medium heat, removing it from heat when you hear the brewed coffee begin to gurgle and splutter through the centre into the top chamber. This means most of the water from the bottom chamber has made its way through and your coffee is nearly ready.

Pour into cups warmed with hot water, and serve as is, or add hot water to make a long black, or some warmed milk to make a latte. Enjoy!
