The Antigua Covadonga is back! A verdant colonial region in central highlands of Guatemala, Antigua is nestled within three volcanoes. The Finca Covadonga coffee farm is an elegant treasure composed of dedicated farmers along with a vast knowledge and passion for coffee.
Our new Antigua is one of our favorite crops this year! It offers sweet hints of pecan pie, honey, hazelnut, nutmeg along with a syrupy body and mild acidity. You can also taste a lingering blood orange undertone, providing an elevated and memorable drinking experience.
Antigua Valley is perfect for cultivating coffee, with ample rainfall, altitude above 4,900 feet and a constant humidity of 65% -- making Antigua coffee number one in Guatemala.
Imagine a coffee that perfectly combines body, flavor and aroma. Genuine Antigua coffee is internationally renowned for its unique characteristics: fragrance and lingering aroma, slight sweetness, clean and pleasant. A hint of chocolate, as well as a fine and discernible body are unique characteristics of the cup.
Genuine Antigua coffee is a gift from the gods poured in your cup, providing bursts of delicate flavors that you can savor every day. Confirmed with Coffee Review with a seal of 93 points, Ken Davids described the Covadonga as "a sweetly bright yet balanced cup. The acidity is delicate yet penetrating, the mouthfeel is light, smooth and silky, orange, honey, flowers and a hint of milk chocolate in both aroma and cup. A precious, pure and lyrical coffee."
