About this coffee

Hailing from the Huehuetenango region in Guatemala, its the cold mountain nights, balanced by warm winds from Mexico, and the long dry summers that create the perfect growing conditions for this brew. This special mix of climate and land creates a super balanced coffee with delicious hints of chocolate, a touch of fruit, and a smooth vanilla finish. La Esperanza fills the cup with everything you want in your morning brew.

Our Roasting Partner, The Barn

Roasting out of Berlin, The Barn has been reshaping coffee culture since 2010. With a footprint spanning coffee shops and home brewers worldwide, The Barn is driven by an uncompromising vision to constantly elevate the coffees it showcases. They focus exclusively on single origins, avoiding blends to ensure each farm’s unique flavour profile stands distinct and to provide full traceability. The Barn has been instrumental in propelling European coffee culture and we’re beyond excited to bring them to the UK this month.

We recommend whole bean as generally, whole beans will stay fresher for longer and give you the flexibility to grind your beans to suit different brewing methods.  

If you have an Espresso Machine, we recommend you grind your own coffee to suit your particular machine. However, we do offer a ground bean option for Espresso, and if you select this option we will do our best to get it right but there are no guarantees as it's a fine balance.

If you select ground coffee for Filter, beans will be ground medium which will be suitable for most at-home brewing methods e.g. Plunger, AeroPress, Chemex, Drippers etc.
