The roast approach for the Guatemala is similar to the Peru. However, these beans behave very differently, they hold on to their temperature quite well. As all coffees, it too, demands a lot of care and attention. It popping sounds of this one are very loud and distinct. Last pops of first crack, and it’s the cooling tray.



Brew Method: Aeropress
Grind Size: Medium
Coffee: 18 grams
Water: 90ml (just off the boil)
Brew Time: 1 mins 35 seconds
For us, this yields a lovely sweet coffee which stays true to the inherent qualities our Guatemala, Las Esmeralda offers. Should you want to add milk, this brewing method offers enough body for milk to cut through it.
The Aeropress is one of our favourite brewers thanks to the versatility it offers. The inverted method gives me more control while brewing as all the ground coffee is in contact with the water during the brewing period.
Bonus tip: when drinking our coffees black it pays off to give the brews time to cool down as this will give the flavours a chance to open up even more.
You can find more details on this brew method in our brew guides.
