Melitta's Guatemalan Roast and Ground Coffee is a medium roast, ground extra fine. It is available in 454g bag.

They say the higher the altitude the better the bean. And at altitudes of 5,600 feet, the central highlands of Guatemala produce one of the world’s most revered and distinctively flavoured coffees. Located between three volcanoes in a valley with a climate perfect for cultivating coffee, it maintains a constant humidity of 65%. It’s grown on a rugged landscape as renowned for its rich volcanic soil as it is for producing an incredibly hard bean. One celebrated for its depth, and complexity of flavour, as much as for its rich aroma. Described as having a full and velvety body, a rich and lively aroma, and a fine acidity.

In the world's best coffee producing regions, there remain a select number of farmers who have grown coffee the same way for generations. They plant and nurture each coffee tree using only environmentally friendly techniques. They harvest each crop by hand. The coffee from these farms is 100% organic and the flavour is pure... the way nature intended it to be. Melitta uses only these premium quality high-altitude arabica beans in our line of World Harvest Organic Coffees. Our World Harvest organic coffees are 100% Fair Trade certified, which means Melitta and its customers support a better life for farming families through fair prices, direct trade, community development, and environmental sustainability.
