Guatemala Lampocoy Nueva Oriente Organic Medium Dark Roasted Whole Coffee Beans


£5.00




  • Nueva Oriente is one of the main coffee growing areas of Guatemala in the Esquipulas Municipal. Compared to the rest of Guatemala’s coffee regions this has very little rainfall but a cool and damp microclimate and produces coffee of a fine acidity and fruity nuances.
  • Lampocoy is a small village that has through the efforts of film maker Detlev Cordts and his wife Milvia Piñeda, utilised direct marketing and enabled the village farmers to obtain 40% more income over the usual global market price.
  • As the farmers receive more money, they are able to take more care in selecting only the ripest red cherries, and ensuring that the processing in not rushed.
  • All helping to make this award-winning organically grown coffee bear comparison with the best in the world.
  • Coffee has been grown in Lampocoy for over 100 years but only recently have the farmers stopped being below the poverty line.
  • The coffee is rather good, similar to a Costa Rican in that it has quite a fruitiness in flavour but the body is bolder and does not share the high acidity.
  • You will receive 95 grams of these roasted beans for £5.00 this will allow you to make between 19 and 38 cups of coffee, depending on cup size. Five grams per Cafetière, the quantity of coffee used will be quite personal so these are guidelines only. This works out at between twenty-six pence and thirteen 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.
