Monterrico beans are sourced from the Huehuetenango region of Guatemala, which is one of the most prized coffee growing regions of the country.
Bold & complex, notes of dark chocolate, red berries & caramel.
Huehuetenango is located in the northwest of the country at the foot of the Cuchumatanes mountain range, the highest non-volcanic mountain range in Central America. The high elevations (eclipsing 6,000 feet above sea level) ensure that the coffee beans ripen slowly, resulting in a denser and harder bean which is imperative for creating a robust dark roast. Our Monterrico Dark roast has been toasted to deep carmelization, allowing the oils to migrate, and expanding the bean to release its naturally sweet, dark chocolate tones.
