Static San Augustin Guatemala
|Antigua Valley, Guatemala
Deeply rich, sweetly smoky. Ripe banana, black peppercorn, singed clove, pipe tobacco, gardenia-like flowers in aroma and cup. The structure is dominated by a smoke-toned sweetness with spice undertones. Velvety smooth mouthfeel. Fruit tones carry the short finish, while gently drying pipe tobacco and clove re-emerge in the long.
Produced by Ricardo Zelaya entirely of the Caturra variety of Arabica. This is a wet-processed or “washed” coffee, meaning the fruit skin and pulp were removed from the beans immediately after harvesting and before drying. Espresso Republic, founded in 2010, specializes in sourcing quality coffees and roasting them in small batches for both retail and wholesale customers.

A roast at the edge between medium and medium-dark promotes pleasant smoke notes in this Guatemala, while still allowing spice, fruit and floral notes to exert their presence and authority.
