From the highland jungles of Guatemala comes La Montana; a coffee that pulsates with colourful energy. Savour the bright plum and citrus notes with a finish of wild honey.
High altitude coffees exude distinctive flavours and this coffee; grown on the jungle slopes of Sierra de las Minas, prove the rule. High humidity and a predomination of pine trees create a distinctly new type of coffee flavour that is intensified by a temperature-controlled fermentation process uninterrupted by the cooling of the night air. The result is a sweeter brighter tasting coffee.
The Body & Brightness Profiles:
When you first taste a coffee, you should first assess its body or mouth feel and also just how acidic or bright it is. You may like a coffee that has a whole lot of body but with low acidity. Or you may like a mellower mouth feel but a brighter acidity. It really is a personal preference, there is no right or wrong.
La Montana has mellow body and good brightness.
The Flavour Profiles:
What sets each individual coffee apart will be the flavours or what we call the “tasting notes”. The tasting notes are many and varied ranging from floral to nutty, spicy to berry, chocolaty to citrusy, just to name a few. These flavours make each coffee very different and so special. Where the coffee is grown, climate, elevation, soil type and harvesting techniques will all impact on the flavour so unique to each coffee.
La Montana releases bright plum, orange and lime notes with a finish of wild honey.
