431 Coffee Beans


Details Country: Guatemala Elevation: 1550m Processing Method: Washed Variety: Catuai

Tasting Notes Earthy Roasted Marshmallow


As a coffee roasting company, our passion is to always highlight the flavors that are unique to each region, processing style, and variety and this is most commonly done with lighter trending roast styles. The 431 is the only coffee that we showcase with what a well done slightly darker roast should taste like. The components are rotating quarterly to continue our vision of seasonality in coffee.

In 2019 we had the opportunity to again visit Guatemala. We arrived at the Guatemala City airport and immediately drove about three hours west to a small town on one of the most beautiful lakes in the world, Lago Atitlan. Perched on the cliffs surrounding the lake is a small town called Panajachel where we stay while visiting San Isidro Chacaya farm. After a few days we drove back east to Acatenango to Tehuya Estate.

The former president of Anacafe (the Guatemala coffee association) Miguel Medina grows a varietal focused, shade covered, wild forest feeling plot of coffee. With unique shade trees and innovative employee practices we have found our second Guatemala coffee partner and are excited to be working closely with Miguel to form a strategic partnership in which Lineage will contract parcels of the land to be farmed exclusively for us. We couldn't be happier with this very dense Catuai coffee.

This coffee is very special and could be roasted light and still be incredible but because of the sweetness in the cup and density of the bean it tastes even better when roasted a little heavier to our 431 espresso profile. Look for notes of roasted marshmallows with a roast and earthy taste.
