Coffee Description

Cherry syrup, cola, and fig aromas sashay into flavor notes of apple with a side of chocolate-dipped caramel. Throw in a hint of cinnamon and rootbeer, add sweet acidity and silky body for an easy to brew, easy to sip classic cup of Guatemalan coffee.

About Chapina Blend of Guatemala

Renowned for its high-grown coffee from farmer cooperatives and large farm lots, Guatemala produces coffees rich with hints of chocolate and fruit, with a moderate, refined acidity. In order to represent Guatemalan coffees consistently throughout the year, Upper Left has created an all-Guatemalan blend, Chapina.

Chapina is continually tweaked to include what is best and available from Guatemala at any given time, anchored by coffees from the Huehuetenango region. The resulting blend is pleasantly structured and lends itself with equal brilliance to a wide range of brewing methods including espresso, french press, or cold brew.
