We have recently adjusted our grind options. With that in mind, we wanted to offer this primer so that you can choose the best grind-style for your preferred brewing method.

Whole Bean-- While we are happy to grind your beans, your coffee will stay fresher longer if you grind it as you go. There are many great home grinder options out there and many are surprisingly inexpensive.

Drip-- This is a medium grind that is the most versatile. Brewing methods using drip include home coffee drip machines, pour-overs (like Hario), Chemex, and AeroPress.

Espresso-- This grind is generally used for espresso makers. This includes home machines and stove-tip espresso pots. The grind is the most fine and is optimized to work with a high pressure extraction system.

Coarse-- Coarse is for percolators, french press, cold brewing, and sometimes AeroPress. Coarse is the biggest/loosest grind and enables water to move more freely steeping coffee for extraction.

All of the above, while generally true in the industry, also should be adjusted for preference. Feel free to experiment and please contact us if you have questions and we will be happy to work with you.

A sweet, caramel-like cup with nutty, almond notes, this Guatemalan coffee is farmed by our friends at the Asociación Chajulense. The city of Chajul, where the co-op is headquartered, is a Mayan urban center, echoing a time when Mayan kingdoms ruled the land. It is one of the three towns that makes up the Ixil Triangle that is located in the Quiche department of Guatemala's western highlands. This area was particularly affected during the Guatemalan Civil War, and the co-op was formed in 1988 by 40 families who were focused on sustaining members, the environment and their local culture. About 1,500 farmers from 56 nearby communities make up the co-op today, and since 2013, the group has been working with the non-profit, The Coffee Trust, to combat a new adversary: La Roya (the coffee rust). La Roya is a devastating fungus that kills coffee plants and reduces crop yield. Through a farmer-to-farmer best-practice-sharing program, members have learned how to replenish nutrients in their soil that helps coffee trees resist La Roya.

The Guatemala is a great everyday coffee (or any time). It is soothing and has a great flavor/aroma. I recommend this for anyone. Tom

Might be my new favorite....

Love many different Cafe Campesino coffees and espressos, but this recently purchased Guatemala might just be my favorite. Very rich, smooth and flavorful, very easy drinking. I'd say the "caramel, nutty, sweet" description on the label is pretty spot-on. I grind the beans myself and use a pour-over brewer, really gets the most out of this delicious coffee. Paul B

great to wake up to

hearty, rich, not bitter at all mara

Searching for the Perfect Cup of Coffee

I've been on a quest to find the perfect cup of coffee. After an extensive and enlightening search on how coffee is roasted and how that affects flavor, I chose the organic Guatemala Full City Roast. I'm still on my quest, but to date, this is the best coffee I have ever tasted. I use my own grinder and brew with a French Press. Love it. Ernie Cowan
