What is Guatemalan Espresso?

An Espresso Roast refers to a coffee that has been strategically roasted to give particularly excellent results when prepared via an espresso machine. Because of the techniques Evelin uses when roasting, these beans create a cup of coffee that’s creamy and balanced, showcasing deep sweet flavors like burned sugar, dark chocolate, and panela while still leaving room for a slightly fruity brightness that shines from the back. An Espresso Roast is typically on the darker side, which helps create that textured body as well as crema, the luscious cream layer on top of an Espresso Shot. While these are certainly the characteristics of an ideal Espresso, you can (and should!) absolutely, 100% enjoy this coffee brewed with pretty much any coffee device.

COFFEE SUGGESTIONS

While this coffee does make a luxurious Espresso shot or an extraordinary base for fun drinks like cappuccinos and lattes, it is also captivating in other methods. Try our Espresso in your everyday drip machine for a rich bodied cup heavy on caramelized sugars or go wild and prepare it with an apparatus like a Chemex or V60 to enjoy straight up chocolate covered cherries. As always, we recommend trying the first 2 sips of your cup without any additives to experience its natural goodness, but after, as to your preference, add whatever you like to this coffee. Its full body blends beautifully with all varieties of milks.

GUARANTEED SINGLE-ORIGIN TRACEABILITY & FRESHNESS

Your bag of Espresso will come from one of the strong female producers listed above. However, with our Espresso, Medium Roast, and Dark Roast, we do not actually know who’s coffee we will be roasting until roast day. These producers are all very small producers and don’t cultivate enough to have their own dedicated roast variety. They are all from the same community and produce quite similar coffee so we can ensure quality throughout the year by leaving sacks sealed until they need to be opened.

It is our promise to always deliver single-origin coffee. That means, we never blend our coffee, not when roasting or before when it’s in green bean form. We maintain strict records to ensure that every single bag of coffee can be traced back to the strong woman who created it and also the batch it was roasted in. Check your bag to find out who produced your coffee!

    We’re always satisfied with our Chica Bean orders! The coffee is always fresh, ground well, and smells great! The taste is smooth and delicious with no bitterness. In fact, our palettes so prefer Chica Bean coffee that we can tell the difference between it and store brands immediately. Thank you for doing an amazing job!
