Guatemala Finca Nueva Granada Estate Monte Rosa Rainforest Alliance French Roast Coffee Beans


  • Situated in San Marcos the Finca Nueva Granada Estate, sits between the two tallest volcanos in Guatemala, Tacana and Taiumulco.
  • It is on these steep slopes in rich soil on ancient volcanic ash that the Bourbon, Catuai and Caturra varietals grow.
  • During the coffee harvest which begins in October, the pickers pass through the groves many times only picking the deepest red cherries.
  • The cherries slowly achieve their colour under the taller ‘Shade Trees’.
  • The farm is 100% Rainforest Alliance and has its own eco-mill which uses 80% less spring water plus the waste water is used for irrigation rather than returning to the rivers.
  • These skilled workers benefit from good health care facilities and free nursery schools.
  • The plucked cherries are de-pulped and left in their parchment, then dried on patios.
  • After grading, the coffee is stored in burlap sacks in a special, dry, wood-lined storeroom.
  • Prior to shipping, the parchment covering is removed and Nueva Granada’s blue-green beans are carefully selected again and finally graded.
  • This really is an excellent French Roast coffee, the taste is clean and floral, and it has great depth and body but is not overpowering and will leave you wanting more, a super little inexpensive treat.
  • You will receive 100 grams of roasted coffee beans for £5.00. At 5 grams per Cafetière you should be able to make 20 to 40 cups, depending on cup size and personal taste. This works out at between twenty-five pence and twelve pence per cup.
  • At Gently Stirred every order is gift wrapped so if you're buying for a number of different people just add that information at checkout.
