Why is Guatemalan Coffee so Good?

Coffee beans grown in Guatemala enjoy a consistent weather pattern, high humidity, heavy rainfall, and nutrient-rich volcanic soil. Put this all together and you get a lovely and well-balanced flavor that is becoming increasingly popular. So why is Guatemalan coffee so good? Our coffee guide will highlight the best of what this smooth and mellow single-origin beauty has to offer.

It’s a Coffee Nation

Guatemala is the 10th largest coffee producer in the world because its climate and geography are perfect for growing. This Central American nation’s economy relies heavily on the export of coffee and demand isn’t slowing down. Guatemalan coffee has earned a reputation for being high-quality and is sought after by consumers all over the world.

Perfectly Mellow

Do you know that great cup of coffee you want to drink at all hours of the day? This is it for us. Bright and medium bodied, it’s light enough to drink it every morning, crave it mid-day, and relax with it in the evening. 


You won’t get a kick in the pants from this one, which makes it a go-to for ongoing enjoyment. It’s got that classic coffee taste—the one that keeps us coming back. Just before you take a sip, you’ll get the floral and citrus aroma that then blends with its bright acidity and sweet and full flavor.

How to Enjoy

Guatemala coffee will wake you up in the morning and keep you alert without being wired all day. We’re in love with this coffee; pair it with citrus desserts to bring out the floral and citrus notes. Try it with a savory bread such as lemon and rosemary to bring out its complexity. Don’t let this coffee hang around too long on a heat source—the delicate floral hints can be lost.
